The Chevelle came to Venezuela, imported by car dealers and individual owners, since it´s introduction in the american market during 1964. It´s production in our country began few years later, in a date we pretend to precise along this investigation.
However, we are sure that during 1970, 1971 and 1972, its production had already begun at the "General Motors de Venezuela" assembly plant located in La Yaguara, Caracas, from where only were produced the sedan, station wagon and coupe versions. There weren´t produced SS coupes, convertibles, neither El Camino´s in Venezuela.
Options oferred for this vehicles were limited, without the same range of variety of RPO´s you could find in the USA, and here, only was sold just the Malibu version -which was only one of the Chevelle versions- but with the 307 cid engine. About 25% of the car´s parts were Venezuelan made.
The 1971-1972 Venezuelan Chevelle Malibu coupes were issued with bucket seats and center console. Their transmisions were TH350´s and their engines, as we said, were 307 cid V8´s.
At the "Specs" section it´s included technical information about these cars, being remarkable the singular VIN Code which identifies them, because even it´s closer to the american one, has variations that make them a rare item.
