Books By Dale

I am pleased to have been a part of these great books with technical advise, proofreading, and supplying many 1970 Chevelle photos. Dale is also a big help with the design, creation, and maintenance of this website as well. His books are an invaluable resource for Chevelle owners and his primary website,, is chock full of data concerning 1964 through 1972 Chevelles.

Dale's books are currently available at Car Tech Books,, Barnes & Noble, Summit Racing, Jegs, Ground Up, and maybe even your local book store!

Autographed copies can also be purchased Dale's website.

Dale's Chevelle Data and ID Guide is his first venture into the world of writing books on Chevelles. This 5x8 pocket guide is an invaluable resource of information and covers all models (300, 300 Deluxe, Malibu, Malibu SS, SS396) and body styles (sedans, station wagons, sport coupes, convertibles, and sedan pickups) of Chevelle from 1964 through 1972 with 238 pages of color photos, facts on production numbers of each model in each year, interior trim codes, colors and availability for each year, engine codes, rear end axle codes, and a whole lot more.

Dale's 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS book explores the world of arguably the most popular Chevelles of all time, the 1970 Malibu sport coupe, convertible, and sedan pickup with one of two SS Equipment options - the venerable SS396 and the new SS454.

This book covers the two SS options, SS 396 and SS 454, and what those two options came with as standard equipment and what was available as options. Dale's 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS book is the first in a series of MUSCLE CARS IN DETAIL by Car Tech Books.

Over 100 color and b/w photos of the cars, interiors, engines, and various options are found in this 6x9 guide. Facts are shown with documented proof and many, many myths and misconceptions are dispelled. Included are some rare photos of several design concepts and options contemplated for the 1970 Chevelle from GM's archives.

02/08/2017: A third book is completed and is now at the publisher for review and layout. The Definitive Chevelle SS Guide should be available in the fall of 2017. This book will cover the 1964-1965 Malibu SS, 1966-1968 SS396, 1969-1972 SS-optioned Chevelles, and will have over 450 color photos.
