1.0 out of 5 stars Rather misses the mark by a good margin 5 Dec 2005
By RC - Published on Amazon.com
If you are looking for a good general reference book on classic Chevelles, this is not the one you want. While the book is lavishly illustrated, many of the detail photos (engine compartments, interiors, etc.) are dark and lack the detail which would be most useful in a book of this type. Use of a flash in the photos would have helped tremendously.

The book is laid out with numerous "facts and figures" in the text and this is where the book really falls on it's face. It contains many, many factual errors.

I really don't want to sound so harsh toward the author and the publisher, but I feel an overriding obligation to Chevelle enthusiasts, especially those who are new to Chevelles and may wish to use books on Chevelles as a reference points, that this particular book does contain some meaningfully incorrect data. Quite a lot of it, actually.

On the positive side, the author did include a number of non-SS cars in the mix to round out the whole picture of the world of the "classic" Chevelles. No Z16 was included in the photos, howeer, though they are mentioned quite prominently in the text. Since the Z16s, rare as they are, are so intergral to the history of Chevelles and so different from other '65s that we should be presented with some pictures of at least one of them.

If you are seeking a good general reference book on Chevelles you should look to other titles as this one misses the mark by quite a long ways.

This book contained great reference material including history, factory option information, as well as full color pictures of the various models and options. This book is great for the restorer or for anyone who is a fan of the glory days of the Chevelle.

Got this for my fiance for christmas, since he is retoring a 72 chevelle. He really enjoyed it because he's a car fanatic. Has lots of great info regarding each year of the chevelle down to the smallest of details.
