Chevrolet Chevelle/Nova/El Camino 1964-1978

These Chevs might be called ‘compact’ or ‘mid-size’ back in their homeland but when parked beside Aussie models of similar type they are pretty substantial.

Smallest are the Nova sedans but even they can have V8 engines and cost around the same as a 5-litre Holden Premier.

The Nova SS as raced by Norm Beechey is keenly sought in the USA and costs $60,000+ here.

Similar money buys an SS-spec Chevelle, sometimes with the big-block ‘396’ engine, but expect to pay $150,000 for a scarce LS6 ‘454’.

El Camino utilities weren’t commonly seen here as new cars but recent imports have filled the void and $30-35,000 buys a good 1969-73 SS version.

Chevelle SS 1965-67 $47,250 [8] 

Chevelle SS 1968-72 $49,240 [10]

Nova V8 1966-71 $39,835 [6] 

Nova SS 1966-67 $63,000 [3]

El Camino 1964-68 $26,655 [11] 

El Camino 1969-78 $34,565 [7]
