Welcome to one of only a few sites on the internet dedicated to the "forgotten generation" of Chevelles. It has only been within the past few years that this body style has really started to catch the eyes of restorers, collectors and hot-rodders. I am developing this site to help those who are looking for information about the third generation of the Chevelle and A-Bodies to find the tools they need for restoring and keeping these great cars on the road.

Third Generation, the Forgotten Generation? I don't think so!

1973 - 1977 Chevelle History
The Chevelle underwent a redesign for the 1973 model year. The so-called "colonnade hardtop" styling featured frameless door glass and fixed "B" pillars. Rear windows on coupes no longer could be opened, no doubt encouragement from GM to purchase the increasingly popular optional air conditioning. Front suspension was based on the Camaro/Firebird which greatly enhanced handling. Engine choices ranged from the 250 I6 to the venerable 454 V8. Hardened engine valve seats and hydraulic camshafts made these engines reliable for many miles, and allowed them to accept the increasingly popular unleaded regular gasoline.
