"One of the best ways to combat rampant misinformation is to have access to a book that was created through countless hours of research and the ever-important fact checking. For enthusiasts who love the Chevelle, there's a new one available that becomes a one-stop shop when you're looking for information. The third edition Chevelle SS 1964-1972 A Muscle Car Source Book is a key aspect that needs to be required reading before buying one of these cars. Author Jeffrey Steffes provides insightful history, including his own experiences when seeking out a true Super Sport. Since there are those in the game who shamelessly position cars as something they are not, Steffes' book will allow you to have the knowledge up front before making a buying mistake. You'll find engine, transmission and differential identification as well as production figures and weights and measurements. Steffes clearly went right to the heart of the matter to get this information that also includes colorful photographs. Chevelle SS 1964-1972 A Muscle Car Source Book is produced by JC Publishing.

The Chevelle Legend
started in August 1963, at a press conference in Chicago. It was that historic day when Chevrolet�s General Manager, S. E. �Bunkie� Knudsen, unveiled the all-new Chevelle for 1964. Chevrolet needed a vehicle to fill the gap between its full size Impala and its compact Nova models. And fill the gap they did with sales of 338,286 Chevelles the first year. The Chevelle SS became an instant hit with sales of 76,860 units, which accounted for nearly 23 percent of all Chevelle sales. continued...
Can My VIN Tell Me If I Have a Real Super Sport?
From the first Chevelle built in 1964, and continuing through the 1968 model year, the Chevelle SS was its own body style, which makes them easy to identify solely by their vehicle identification number (VIN). The second through the fifth digit in the VIN can be used to identify what body style the particular vehicle is.
Starting with the 1969 model year, the Super Sport was no longer a stand-alone model, but rather an option that could be ordered on any two-door platform. From that point on, with exception of 1972 models equipped with a 454 cubic inch engine, there is no way to tell from the VIN whether your Chevelle is a real Super Sport. continued...
