Chevy Chevette: One tough son of a gun (1981)

For the same reasons you buy one Chevy Chevette, some companies buy a thousand

Chevy Chevette’s built for some demanding customers.

The Bell System, for example, has over 6,000 Chevettes at work. Professional stunt driver Joie Chitwood stars Chevy Chevette in over 200 Thrill Show performances a year. Falcon Parcel Delivery runs their Chevette fleet 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And Chevettes in service with Pacific Car Rental have accumulated over 1,125,000 miles in the past five years.

Now that’s a lot of miles to cover.

And that’s one of the reasons why you can count on the 1981 Chevy Chevette. It’s built to economically go a long way, for a long time.

Remember: Compare the “estimated MPG” to the “estimated MPG” of other cars. You may get different mileage, depending on how fast you drive, weather conditions, and trip length. Actual highway mileage will probably be less than the estimated highway fuel economy. Calif. est. lower. Chevrolets are equipped with GM-built engines produced by various divisions. See your dealer for details. And Chevette’s low price helps make it the best-selling small car in America. So if you’re buying or leasing one car or 1000, think about a car that’s capable of accumulating a lot of miles. For not a lot of money.
