Question Info for chevelles

O.K., I seriously want a chevelle, preferably 68-72, and I could use any info like gas mileage, price, and anything else you can spare. I already know alittle about muscle cars but I'll take any info you throw my way.

Gas mileage depends on the gears that are in them

You don't have too. He's doing a good enough job for both of you.

Some came with 4.56, 4.33, 3.73, 3.31, 3.08 etc.
Basically the gear ratios ranged from 2.73 to dealer installed 4.88 drag cogs

Engines: 454, 396, 350, 327, 283
Some of the engines hp varied. example: In 1968 the 396 ranged from 325bhp@4800rpm, 410lb-ft@3200rpm to 375bhp@5600rpm, 415lb-ft@3600rpm

COPO Chevelles had a 427 (Good luck finding one of those )

***Not 100% sure on these numbers***

EDIT: About the gas mileage, when you buy a muscle car, its not about how fuel efficient it is and all that shit.

good choice of car. my granddad had a '69 SS 396 convertable, red w/ white/cream vinal interior (bench seats). I took it around the lakes a few times...great feeling. He sold it a month or so ago, too bad. he got 18k for it though.

I was just saying a 2.73 will get better gas mileage than a 3.73 or 4.11

why do we have to account for ever sencario (no matter how unlikely) with this guy? we all recognize your superior experince, but what does it realy matter what the fuel economy will be with any given engine/transmission/rear end gearing when we're talking about a Chevelle? your gonna get sucky milage, loads of torque, and lots of ass (unless your a complete dousch).

Don't ask me Twinkie. I'm not the one who brought up the mileage or gearing, I just asked for clarification. On the other hand, your knowledge of the subject only extends as far as imaginary e-cars where things like facts don't really matter. If you want an answer to your question, ask the person who introduced the information into the thread.
