Chevrolet Chevelle, Nova, El Camino, C-10 1964-74 market review

Cars that Chevrolet called ‘mid-size’ look pretty damn big when parked beside a medium-sized Aussie model from the same era.

That said, late 60s Chevelles offered bigger engines than anything we had and the kind of performance that today produces big prices in a keen market.

Even the Nova, which began life at about the same size as an EH Holden, could be ordered with a V8 and soon became part of the muscle car world.

El Camino utes are a Chevelle with a massive luggage area but SS396 versions bring considerably less than a passenger version with the same engine.

Quality 1969-71 El Caminos cost around $35,000; similar money to what’s being paid for excellent examples of the C-10 pickup, which is a proper classic load carrier.
