SSSSSSSeeevvvvven....TEEEEE! SS Which is also what I own, strange how it appears we are picking the year that we have....hmmmmm, ya think others will follow suit? My gut says yyyyup. Although I wouldnt mind owning a Z16, but as we all know, thats 'bout as likely as me trading in my Velle for a 5.0

I think genrally it is the 1970, followed closely by the 1967. As for me I have always been partial to 68's. Given the chance though I would own one from each year including the mid 70's. Gotta love those cool 73-76(?) swivel buckets

Well, the most popular WERE
64- 76,890
65- 81,112
66- 72,272
67- 63,006
68- 62,785
69- 87,030

72- 24,946
According to the Red Book, the '69 was most popular, of which I have one, a Glacier blue, Blue Vinyl top, Blue interior, SS

although, I think every one would love to have a '70 LS-6
I prefer the 69's and the 67's

I would Jump over 10 LS-6's and 1 Z16 to get at a 1970 Chevelle with L78-/L-89 Aluminm heads in Convertible form with Documents.And make it Gobi Beige with Black stripes with a Credence Clear Water Revival 8Tk tape in the Stereo

Most popular? Every show I've been to has more 70's than any other year.

RICK/Mr70 - There's got to be a story there somewhere. Gobi Beige? really??
When I was at Duffy's Collectables in Iowa this past May they had just started restoring
a 70 Gobi Beige SS454 LS-5, LOADED car. It had air, 8-track, FM stereo, gages, tach, vinyl top, color keyed belts, EVEN THE TURN SIGNAL INDICATORS on the fenders. I was there when they found the build sheet behind the driver's door panel. It's probably done and on their showroom floor by now, or sold already.

Obviously the '69 SS sold the most, but IMO, the '70 is now the most popular (most desired) followed by the '67. Give me a '69 COPO 427.

As for me, I graduated from high school in '67. It's a flip of the coin as to my favorite '67 or '70, although I own a lowly '67 2 door sedan.
I'll never forget seeing a '70 brochure that had a red SS with black stripes with saddle interior. That has to be one of the best color/trim combinations ever.
At various shows I'd rank numbers by year: '70, '67, '66, '69, '68, '71, '72, '65, and '64.
What do you think?

Rick, when I ordered my 70 SS-396 new (Champaign Gold, not Gobe Beige - colors were close I guess) the three tapes I had for it at that time were CCR, Abbey Road and Led Zeppelin.

There's little doubt that today the 70 model is probably the most sought after.
