The Chevrolet Chevelle undoubtedly has one of the largest followings of any of Detroit's muscle cars. It was a chassis for Everyman, offered in Malibu and Chevelle form, with four-door sedans, station wagons, two-door SS performance models, and even truck-style beds available. It was the mid-size Chevy chassis for all purposes. For many years, until 1970, it existed among mid-size offerings as a fairly capable machine. After the General Motors displacement ban ended for the 1970 model year, Chevrolet put new skin on the Chevelle and a new powerplant under the hood: the vaunted LS6 454 with 450 hp. Today, the 1970 Chevelle SS 454 is viewed as one of the most iconic automobiles ever produced on American soil. SS 396 and 454 Chevelles command a premium at auction and are one of the most coveted muscle cars ever produced.

In 1969, the Camaro with the SS package took Chevy Camaro performance and styling to another level. First, the Camaro carried updated sheet metal for an aggressive and eye-catching appearance, and the ultra-high-performance 427 big-block engines were available for the first time. As history proved, 1969 was the pinnacle of performance and styling for the first-generation Chevy Camaro. Author and muscle car expert Robert Kimbrough provides a comprehensive examination of the all-time classic 1969 Camaro SS in Volume No. 4 of CarTech's In Detail series. He delves into the design, manufacturing, and equipment of Chevrolet's premier pony car. For the first time in its history, the 1969 Camaro SS had a full slate of high-performance small-blocks as well as big-blocks to conquer the competition on the street and track. The engines included the 350, 375-hp 396, and 425-hp COPO 427 Camaros. The Camaro SS made such an impression, that it became the Indy 500 Pace Car once again in 1969. All In Detail Series books include an introduction and historical overview, an explanation of the design and concepts involved in creating the car, a look at marketing and promotion, and an in-depth study of all hardware and available options, as well as an examination of where the car is on the market today.

The late 1960s was an interesting time in the automotive world. Muscle cars, as we now know them, were well established, with all manufacturers joining the horsepower race. You could walk into the showroom for any brand from any manufacturer and find a variety of performance models. Competition being what it is, the manufacturers were looking for ways other than winning races to lure buyers into the showrooms and entice them to buy their products. Some tried to accomplish this with fancy marketing schemes and graphic paint packages and decals, and for the first time, some tried to win over buyers with price. Volume No. 5 of CarTech's In Detail series covers the 1969 Plymouth Road Runner. It was an interesting marriage of a car that attempted to appeal to potential buyers with a low cost, light weight, and potent bare-bones package. It also added a brilliant marketing strategy of partnering with a famous studio and a popular cartoon character. The end result was a wildly popular, big-block, affordable muscle car with great graphics and a cool beep-beep horn. The public loved it.

Pontiac ushered in the muscle car era when it introduced the mid-size 1964 GTO with a 389. So it was fitting that Pontiac made the last legitimate muscle cars of era: the 1973 and 1974 Trans Am Super Duty 455. As a second-gen F-Body car, the Trans Am featured refined styling, handling, and ride, but still retained brutish power. However, because of rising gas prices and insurance costs, these cars were not produced in great numbers, so they are extremely rare and valuable today. In Volume No. 6 of CarTech's In Detail series, author Barry Kluczyk goes behind the scenes to reveal how a cadre of dedicated personnel at Pontiac refused to relinquish high-performance, forged ahead, and built the last great muscle car, the 1973 and 1974 Trans Am Super Duty 455. He retraces the design, development, and manufacture of each major component of the group. He also covers engine development and special equipment of the Super Duty 455 engine. In addition, covered are the high-performance chassis and suspension parts, so the TA could effectively apply and control all of the power. All In Detail Series books include an introduction and historical overview, an explanation of the design and concepts involved in creating the car, a look at marketing and promotion, and an in-depth study of all hardware and available options, as well as an examination of where the car is on the market today.

Chevelles have always carried a certain aura about them. As Chevrolet's entry into the mid-sized muscle car market, they provided high sales numbers across many platforms as Chevrolet won the manufacturers crown six of nine years from 1964 to 1972. At the tip of the Chevrolet sales spear resided the Chevelle SS. Beginning in 1969, the Chevelle SS was no longer its own model and was relegated to being an option package. Hence, it can become difficult to determine if a 1969–1972 model was ordered from the factory with Super Sport equipment. Author and noted Chevelle expert Dale McIntosh discusses each model in a year-by-year format, providing correct information on what was and wasn't part of the Malibu SS, SS396, and SS-optioned Chevelle. Crucial to this is a firm understanding of plant-by-plant variances along with mid-year changes that he has identified to make your Chevelle SS factory correct. Rarely does a book offer this much hard data in an easy and concise read. You will be confident that your Chevelle SS is as original as possible.
