Would be directly proportional to amount of "junk" contained within said garage. And inversely proportional to drastic need for tool/stuff located at the most inaccessible portion of garage with auto in place.
My thoughts...I like to be able to open the doors without hitting anything and be able to walk around the car freely. Just be wary of anthing standing up or hanging on walls around car.
Car will just be parked for winter months. No work will be done to it. I actually have a two car garage but will use the other half.Do you know exact dimensions (length & width)? On a quick measurement I got 210 inches long and 76 inches wide.
I'm not sure of what you are asking? are you looking for the dimensions of your Chevelle? If you are, then take out the tape measure and look. If you are not planning on working on the car, then just rent what space he car takes up based on those measurements. If you are having a problem with storage space, you can always keep it in my garage.
Sorry jgmj; can't help you on the '68, but I would bet that somebody in the forum who has a '68 service manual could look it up for you.
The '65 service manual has a table in the first section that lists the dimensions for all the various Chevys, Chevelles, and Chevy II's that year. It's broken down by body styles e.g. 4-door sedan, pickup (El Camino), etc. I would expect that the '68 manual would be in the same or similar format.
I'm guessing that the '68 is bigger than the '65. Non-stock wheels/tires/lowering etc. might change the height a little bit from the published number.
