Did you know . . .

Serious Drag Racers ordered the Bench Seat in the 1966 442 instead of Buckets becase it was lighter - 92 versus 96 pounds (this is the case with all production Muscle Cars*).








Other weight saving:

Delete heater and defroster
Drum brakes instead of disc
No power brakes
No power steering
No radio


More than 150 pounds could be shaved off the weight of a car by ordering it as above.

*Exceptions would be cars like the Thunderbolt and Hemi Dart/Barracuda which used lighter Van bucket seats that weighed less than a bench

My first Muscle Car!

A 1967 triple black SS 396/350hp Chevelle with 4 speed. Only difference with this one is mine had Pontiac Rally II wheels.

I bought it for $1700 in July of 1969. Took it to college with me in Sept. 1969.

For the 1971 Buick GS, the thru the bumper exhaust with chrome tips was an option (RPO N25)





Without N25:

Hi Lee, I can´t say how much I envy you and your old Chevelle. As I said earlier, the ´67 is a favourite, maybe my no 1 choice Chevy. Although I could live with that ´66 Canso also!! Cool that it´s not an SD.
I bought my first US car in high school. Not a muscle car, but a
´58 Impala coupe, for about 800 USD In what year you wonder? 1972!!
Bets of all Chris

Hey Chris

My first car was a 1964 327/300hp Impala SS convertible. Got that in May 1968 for my 17th birthday. Paid $900 for it and drove the wheels off it until I bought the Chevelle. I was living in Liberty NY (upstate NY) where you only had to be 17 to get a full drivers license.

When I went to College, my best friend had a brand new 1969 SS 396 Chevelle so he and I had A LOT of match races for the year I owned the Chevelle - at least 50! My memory tells me that it was about even. His was a 325hp engine but he had 3.73 gears while I had 3.55.

I went to a well to do College (Babson) where there were numerous super wealthy student families such as:

The Chapin Brothers - father was a big wig excutive for AMC - both had AMXs ('69 & '70)

Jim Kellogg - Kellogg's Corn Flakes fame - 1969 427/435hp Corvette

Jack Abiel - father owned Forsgate Farms - a HUGE dairy farm in NJ. A 1969 Boss 302

Edsel Ford II - father was Henry Ford II - drove a custom one of a kind 1970 Boss 351 Mustang built for him by Holman/Moody

Kevin Leape (was on the Basketball team ) and drove a 1969 428 CJ Mach1 with 4.30 gears.

I can't remember his name but I sure remember his car . . . a 1969 Black 440 magnum Dodge Dart GTS with white bumblebee stripe.

I also can't remember his name but his car was memorable - a 1969 L78 375hp SS 396 Chevelle convertible. His father owned the top Black American magazine (Ebony ???) at the time (1969).

And me with my humble 1967 SS 396 Chevelle
