Not only did I see a 1965 Buick Skylark yesterday while out and about in Boulder, but I also spotted this 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 Deluxe.
The interesting thing is that these 2 cars share the exact same chassis, although they are completely different looking intermediate-size cars. I have to say that I believe the Buick Skylark got some extra attention on the outside. The Chevelle is a bit more plain looking, though still catches attention. It is a rather sporty four-door sedan.
Nice view of the mountains above. The Chevrolet Chevelle was manufactured between the years 1963-1977.
I like the front end to this car. That ridge on that front hood going into the corners looks really cool, and it has decent looking grill and chrome circle head lights that really pull it all together here.
Tonnes of chrome! It looks really flashy against this crisp metallic light blue colour. It caught my attention immediately as I turned into the parking lot.
I feel that the disabled parking pass hanging from the rear view mirror gives this one some real authenticity to the era.
Lets turn this baby blue beauty around. That is a giant trunk for a mid-size car.
It has that same swallow tail of a bumper but the lights are not nearly as elegant as we saw on the Skylark. Nevertheless, a nice shape with those tail fins.
Sharp pointy rear corners that could really carve out the door in a modern day vehicle.
The Chevrolet Chevelle 300 Deluxe!
This checkered flag emblem is really cool, some great racing spirit. This car was considered a muscle car entry back in the day, and would later provide the platform for the Monte Carlo that was introduced in 1970.
You can really get a good look at that sweet blue metallic paint job. I like that forward angle front end, it really gives the car some nice poise.
A closer look at those sharp corners. Wow those are some hardcore external screws in the tail light. Now that’s quality.
And there you have it a 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle 300 Deluxe basking in the glowing warm sunshine of Boulder Colorado.
