For The 1964-1972 Chevelle Enthusiast

Book #3 - The Definitive Chevelle SS Guide 1964-1972

With my second book finished, I was asked to do a third book. The Definitive Chevelle SS Guide 1964-1972 (working title) is now being written. No cover has been designed yet so the image on the right is a montage of 1964-1972 Chevelle sport coupes, convertibles, and El Caminos.
