Old Hot Rod Magazines and Others

Cleaning out the garage and I have a number of old Hot Rod, Super Chevy, and Chevelle World magazines to get rid of. Let me know if you have any interest in a specific issue or group of these. They're yours for the cost of postage.

Owning a Chevelle project is like having a giant-size piggy bank that you keep pouring money into....but you can't get it back out.

I just went through about 75 or so out of a couple hundred mags from the 60’s mostly that I saved from when I was a teenager. Oh man the articles I came across on sbc’s and bbc’s! No way I’ll throw those out!

I’d be interested in any articles you know of regarding ‘67 Chevelles, especially restorations or engine building. I don’t believe they still publish that Chevelles magazine do they? The only one I have has an article in it where a couple found their old ‘67 L78 (Balt build) and restored it along with another ‘67 L78. So cool! I haven’t had any luck finding mine....must be gone.

Articles pop up randomly, you’d probably need to give him a list of issues to look through otherwise he’ll spend days searching.

It sounds like you might be better off buying a book that compiled magazine road tests. They were popular in the 1990’s, I bought several, including some that were specifically for Chevelle SS’s.

I did a quick search on eBay for “Chevelle book” and came up with over 2,000 matches. That is where I’d search.

Re: Old Hot Rod Magazines and Others

It turns out most of what I have are Super Chevy magazines. I have a bunch of them, so I divvied them up into stacks by featured year: 64-65, 66-67, 68-69, 70-72. PM me if you want one of the stacks. The Chevelle World issues are already spoken for.

Randy,
If there are any issues that have articles about the Heavy Chevy Chevelle I would be interested. And I will also take whatever else you have left over when all other requests are filled.

Re: Old Hot Rod Magazines and Others

Last year, I advertised 15 boxes of old magazines dating back to the early 60's. 300-400 of them. Free. Mostly Hot Rod, Street Rodder, Tri-5 Classics, and many others, no Chevelle magazines. Never even got 1 call. Cost me $25 to get rid of them.

They are now part of Mother Earth again. (landfill)

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

That’s a shame! Somebody missed out. Some of the advertisements alone are nearly “priceless”. Anyone who wants to learn what it was like in the 60’s when Chevelles, Camaros & Novas ruled the streets are missing out! Nothing like reading those old magazines!

The ads aren’t priceless, neither are any of these magazines. They are a cool novelty but that’s about it. Do a quick search on eBay for any common title and you will find thousands, then search completed and sold listings, most sell for only a few dollars. There are a handful of obscure publications which are valuable, but most were regional and often racing oriented. Even then, most of those are rarely worth more than $25 worth each. Over the years I’ve bought out several collections, the prices just keep dropping. Now I’m only interested if they have old racing programs, decals, vintage clothing, pictures and posters, which many do, that’s where the money is.

Yeah, I REALLY had a hard time throwing them out. Did save a couple old Hot Rods and Chevy High Performance that featured Chevelles, Novas, and related how-to articles.

Re: Old Hot Rod Magazines and Others

Ok guys, last call on the magazines. All of these have Chevelle articles in them. The Chevelle World issues are gone and the 66-67 Super Chevy issues are spoken for. I have 8 issues of 64-65 Super Chevy mags, 10 issues of 68-69 stuff, and 19 issues of 70-72 Chevelles. They're either going to a new home or the dump next week. PM me if you're interested, not selling these, just covering postage costs.

I hear ya Steve, but “priceless” can mean more than just monetary value. There are collectors out there who will pay up to $10 for a long gone advertisement....I know as I’m one of them! Ha! I was about to buy an ad off eBay of the M/T Super Scavenger Headers, then when going thru my old mags from when I was a teenager “I found one!” Ha! That’s what priceless means to me! Plus, some people’s trash are other people’s treasure!

Anyway to scan them, I would love electronic copies but not the paper. Take up more room then it is worth. Or does anyone know were to find someone who is selling electronic copies

Life is too short for caring about every bodies else's stuff
