Collection of 48 original publicity photographs of the 1969 Chevrolet lineup of cars and trucks
Detroit: General Motors, 1969. Collection of 48 vintage black and white publicity photographs of the Chevrolet lineup of cars and trucks for 1969. The collection appears to be the entire Chevrolet lineup of vehicles for 1969, and were likely for use in print advertising. One, the Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe, has annotations in holograph orange wax pencil to the recto, likely specifications for print, and holograph pencil annotations on the verso.
The photographs feature 25 side views, 20 3/4 front views, two 3/4 rear views, and one overhead view. The Chevelle SS 396 Sport Coupe features a 3/4 front view as well as a side view, and the Custom El Camino includes a duplicate 3/4 view photograph.
Uncommon to find in such a large grouping, the collection includes three convertibles coupes, ten sedans, one convertible sedan, six station wagons, two Suburbans, two vans, four pickup trucks, four cab trucks, and three utility vans. Some of the most popular muscle cars ever made were manufactured by Chevrolet in 1969, including the aforementioned Impala Sport Coupe, the Corvette Stingray Convertible, the Chevelle SS 396 Sport Coupe, and the Camaro Z/28 Sport Coupe, all included in the collection.
