After writing up the Junkyard Chevette that we posted a couple of hours ago, I somehow fell deeply down the Chevette rabbit hole and found this video produced by Chevrolet extolling all the features of the 1979 Chevette. I’ll be damned if I don’t find myself wanting one now! For example, did you know that the 1979 Chevette offered door-affixed shoulder belts as an option, that same thing that became a cursed feature a decade later in numerous other cars? Or that it came with a service manual so you could learn to do basic servicing yourself and avoid the dealer? All that and tons more, I’m beginning to see how they shifted 451,000 of these things that year.
