With a body reminiscent of a soda bottle, the 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle has the fizz you need to perk up your classic car collection. The Chevelle is a true workhorse of the muscle car world, introduced in 1964. The 1968 model has an updated body style that is still popular with collectors. The big block 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is the dream model that enthusiasts want in their garages. However, if these cars are a little outside your budget, check out the more affordable 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu with straight-six or small block V8 engines. The Powerglide was the only automatic transmission available in 1968 for these engines, but there was a wide selection of manual three and four-speed transmissions available. One of the great advantages of the popularity of the 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle is that there is an abundance of reproduction parts on the market if you want to tackle a restoration project. Alternatively, look for a vehicle on eBay that has already had a makeover and drive it on the drag strip over the weekend, or polish it up to show off at a car show.
