Driver's Impression - On the Street
The Edelbrock Chevelle was another car in this evaluation that impressed me because it had simple, bolt-on parts that any enthusiast could install. Yet these same parts transformed the machine from an old-school automobile to a first-class, modern driver. Did it exhibit a little more body roll than some of the others? Yes, but the trade-off was an extremely pleasant, comfortable ride. That's a compromise I think most enthusiasts would be happy to make, especially those who live in parts of the country where snow, salt trucks and plows have made a mockery of the once-smooth pavement.

Other likes? The logical gauge placement, three-spoke steering wheel, and the tilt column made for a nice driving environment, though you sit a little high in the stock seats for my taste. Stout brakes, too. On the downside, the steering was numb on center (though the car had a nice, tight turning radius). The Centerforce clutch had a nice, firm pedal and worked beautifully with the Tremec TKO 600 five-speed, but in a car like this you need a longer shifter. Either that or I need longer arms.

Overall, I enjoyed my time in the Edelbrock Chevelle. It was just a hot rod done right, a dual purpose machine that you could drive anywhere, but one where you'd go an extra 10 miles out of your way to and from work if it meant you could exercise it on a curvy back-country road.-Jim Campisano
