Chevrolet was founded in 1910 by Louis Chevrolet and William Durant, and quickly became an automotive powerhouse, producing sedans, trucks, and station wagons. Some of Chevrolet's innovative stylistic choices, for example its iconic 1950s models (like the '57 Chevy), heavily influenced car design in that era.

Among collectors, classic Chevy 1950s and 60's models are the most sought-after. Parts for these cars are relatively easy to find, and vintage car buffs love their styling. The big, tail-finned Chevy sedans like the Bel Air and Impala can be differentiated by their tail lights: Bel-Airs had two, Impalas had three.

The 1950s also saw the introduction of the Corvette, one of Chevrolet's most popular models. Another sports model, the Camaro, was added in 1967 and became Chevrolet's pony and muscle car rival to Ford's Mustang. The Chevy Camaro was joined by the Nova in the early 70's. The Nova had previously been a smaller coupe and wagon, but was restyled into a sleeker muscle car in 1968.

Other famous classic Chevy models include the El Camino, a car/truck crossover workhorse with a big block engine that peaked in popularity in the late 1960s, and the Chevelle, a mid-size coupe that was offered in a number of styles including the high-end Malibu.
