For Sale Rare 1967 Chevelle Convertible. Frame-off restored. Has a 350ci V8 engine, automatic, power convertible top, excellent interior. Production figures showing only 96 built like this one . Drive this one anywhere!
history about this rare Chevelle 300, (see below about production numbers): While in the United States Chevrolet was marketing the 138-series SS396, in Canada there was a curious version that was not well known or understood. In fact, its very existence is doubted by many - the Malibu SS of 1966 and 1967.
Following on the heels of the 64/65 Malibu SS, where the SS was really more about trim than drive train, in Canada they continued with that marketing strategy. Although the 1965 Auto Pact between Canada & the U.S. would soon have a marked effect on model offerings, the '66 models were already committed to production.
In the U.S. there were a number of different series, many drive train combinations and many options. In Canada they made do with only 2 series, simplified drive train choices and fewer interior options. In the U.S. there were 300 series, 300 Deluxe series, the Malibu and the SS396 series. In Canada there was only the 300 & Malibu series. Since there was no 300 Deluxe series for a base wagon, it was shifted into the base 300 series. Canadian production was perhaps 1/10th of that in the U.S. in terms of volume. Sheer economics dictated a more simplified lineup. For probably that reason alone, convertible production needed whatever means to get production figures up to the point where the body style was profitable to build after tooling up. Besides offering a convertible on the Malibu, there was also a 300 convertible to appeal to the traditionally thrifty Canadians. Combine that production with the Chevelle's fraternal twin the Beaumont and it is likely that GM Canada built the cars profitably with that formula. However, the base 300 was not a big factor on convertible sales. For example, only 96 of the V8 300-series convertibles were built for 1967! There were never more than about 200 or 300 of those cars produced annually as six cylinder or eight cylinder models.
