Chevrolet owners are known for being fanatical about their vehicles. With their emphasis on performance, their unbeatable value, and their solid build quality, Chevrolet vehicles always have something more to offer than the competition. To take a look at some classic Chevys that have a prominent history, read on.
First produced back in 1935, this massive truck-based vehicle offered more space than the wood-paneled station wagons that Americans loved at the time. This is a clear example of a widely loved Chevrolet, evidenced by the fact that the Suburban is the oldest continuous-production nameplate in the United States.
Chevrolet Advanced Design Pickup
A collector’s classic today, the 1948 Chevrolet Advanced Design truck was one of the roomiest trucks released at the time. Because of its affordability, the Chevrolet Advanced Design truck proved to be a great second vehicle for many Americans who needed help with business or hauling heavy loads.
The Chevrolet Corvette was first released in 1953 as a pure performance car. It featured a fiberglass body that boasted reduced weight and a sleek appearance. These days, it’s not uncommon for a ’53 Vette to command over $1 million at auction, as only 300 models were made in the first production year.
The successor to the beloved Chevrolet Bel Air was the Impala, which was introduced in 1958. Just seven years into production, Americans were in love with the full-size Impala. The Chevrolet Impala even set a sales record that’s still held today—over 1 million models were sold for the 1965 model year.
According to a Consumer Reports survey, the most-loved car of 2012 is the Chevrolet Volt. The Volt’s class-leading fuel economy, exciting performance, and handsome looks are just a few reasons why 92% of Volt owners who responded to the survey said they would still get the Chevy Volt if they had to do it over again.
