1965 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Z16
The Chevelle Z16 is a fully loaded regular Chevelle with all the available speed options. It features a 396 V8 engine with a Muncie four-speed gearbox and heavy-duty suspension. Even some dealers weren’t aware that this option existed, as Chevrolet refused to market the Z16 for some reason, making this Chevelle a secret model (via Hemmings).
The Z16 was fast but also expensive for a Chevrolet. That’s why they made only 200 of them. This model debuted in 1965 model year only, and most of the dealers still needed to get the idea Chevrolet built it. Almost all of the models made were coupes.
