With a low starting price, great fuel economy and an impressive array of available features and options, it’s easy to see why the Chevrolet Chevette was at one point America’s best-selling car. However all the features that made the Chevette the perfect car for carrying American families through the 1970s energy crisis, like its utilitarian styling and low-cost four-cylinder engines, also contribute to it being a rather undesirable classic to own today.
While the Chevrolet Chevette may be one of the weirder classic vehicles one might decide to put in their garage, we can see why some General Motors enthusiasts might want to own one. After all, there’s no denying the Chevette is a significant part of GM’s past given its impressive sales numbers.
This 1976 Chevrolet Chevette seems as though it’d be a near-perfect collector’s item for one of these prospective Chevette owners. With a rust-free body, clean title and just 39,890 original miles on the clock, this little Chevrolet compact car essentially looks the same now as it did when it rolled off the GM lot in the mid-1970s. It also has a characteristically 1970s color combination with a beige exterior and an equally as drab beige interior. To our knowledge, Chevrolet’s official name for this beige color in 1976 was “Buckskin.”
The market for well-kept Chevrolet Chevettes is probably quite small and we think the number of people willing to pay what this one is selling for is even slimmer. The current owner hopes to get $6,995 in exchange for it, which seems like a lot for a Chevette – no matter how well taken care of it is. Then again, if a wealthier enthusiast is just looking to put a Chevette in their collection, this is a great example of the popular Chevrolet compact that seems to be highly original and would require very little restoration work.
