1972 Chevrolet Chevelle Sedan

Isn't it funny that, with all the furor surrounding the big-engined cars, the 4 door Chevelles seem almost rarer. I like an LS5-equipped SS just as much as anyone else, but I find the more pedestrian, Malibu-badged sedans just as interesting--if not more. 1972 represented the last year of the 2nd-gen Chevelle, and the end of an era, as the new '73 cars represented a shift toward the personal luxury cars that dominated American lineups in the seventies.

  1. The only reason I think those cars (4-door sedan) are rare these days is because they're in the junkyard. I remember growing up seeing enough of the 4-door Chevelle sedans. It's just the sad reality of a regular American 4-door sedan. They get used and eventually scrapped. A lot most likely feel victim to rusting out. The two-door hardtops have most likely been restored, and the convertibles probably have always been preserved.
