1966 L79 Chevy II Series 100 Sedan




The Redline tires are incorrect. Not an option on the 1966 Chevy II/Nova. They did not appear until 1968 when they became standard on the SS in E70x14 size

Should look like this:

1967 L79 Chevelle Malibu










As you know, I owned a 1967 SS 396 Chevelle. I would take this L79 Malibu over it in a heartbeat. Not having that heavy engine up front makes it a totally different car as far as handling - and braking. The BB Chevelles with drum brakes have a tendency to nose dive when you hit the brakes hard. You can shift an L79 at 6000 RPM all day long, something you couldn't do with a base 396. And for those who didn't want all the flash and "do-das" of the SS 396, it was a perfect street racer with either 3.73 or 4.11 gears.

1970 Chevelle Concept - November 1967




A lot different than the 1970 Chevelle Concept of August 1967 - just 3+ months previous




One month before the final design was agreed upon - October 1967

1970 Chevelle - Unused Ad Photo




Definitely a pre-production car - no SS 350 Malibu in 1970. Notice on the door - decals of other Muscle Cars - like WWII pilots used to paint on their fighter planes - enemy destroyed. The creator of the ad wanted Chevy to either sell the decals or give them away when you bought an LS6 SS454 Chevelle. IMO - very clever.

It's an outdoor billboard ad for a . . . . . . . . 1958 Impala

It is a very rare car, even with the "3 on the tree" and a 3.08 non Posi 12 bolt rear. In 1966, only 63 Acadians had the L79 option. Most of them were the Canso Sport Deluxe:

WOW, what a sleeper. Too bad with the 3-speed and non-Posi though.

Great stuff again, Lee! Never saw that photo of the 1970 Malibu SS350 before. It's hard to believe GM would have allowed such a thing as "kill" stamps on the door since they disallowed any and all ads promoting street racing, but this would have been a wild idea, something that I think Mopar would have done.

Here is another unused ad photo of the same car:




Both photos were a little bit too aggressive for Chevy's liking and that is why neither were used - as you said, they promoted street racing which GM was 100% against.

This was another photo from the same ad company Chevy used. I am sure you have seen it before:




But how about this one:

Here is an ad for a prototype two-tone paint option (never used) for the 1970 Impala




BTW - this car has no engine or transmission in it. It's just a shell.

1970 LS5 454 Impala Convertible







If you remember, the Impala SS model ended with the 1969 model so if you wanted a big car Muscle Car from Chevy in 1970, this was it - TH400 only.
