So when was the car built or why was this car invented lets see about that. The date was the 21st of March, 1962 it was back in the 60s. The first ever Chevrolet 400 vehicle was produced by the company. The car was built with a 194-cubic-inch engine. That was pretty amazing back in the day. Also with the designation “194”, as previously mentioned as (or 3179 cc). This was built As a luxury sedan for chevy collection. It was manufactured in the Special and Base variants and also sold as those varieties too. With also most of these being utilised as taxis. And also a single-barrel Rochester BC carburetor was connected in this engine. Which is why the Special’s Holley was used in those days. The special thing is the horsepower of the engines. The both engines are capable of producing 106 horsepower to the car as well.
Also The both versions comes with a manual transmission with three gear types.As a another version of this car Super was introduced back in 1964.it was introduced by the General Motors. And it was featured an updated front to the car. That gives a new look to the car as well. The engine in the car was new inline “230” six-cylinder engine. That was 3700cc engine as well.

This car is named for its orange paint job that’s why there is orange in the name. And also the car is powered by a 250-horsepower engine. That mated to a transmission similar to the the transmission found in the Chevrolet Corvette.
Why they stop building the car
So the thing is they discontinued the 400 series on chevy. Now we going to talk about that. I’m not actually sure that these are the reasons why they stopped. These are some information I gathered from other resources. But let’s see about this. So i think the main reason that this car stopped making is the production value. As i said the car was one of the most famous cars in 1960s. As they got famous the market got bigger to the car. And there was two models. Because of the high market i think chevy didn’t manage to produce cars. Because making this car was so expensive. The car was designed as a sports luxury car. And they didn’t get the chance to keep up. So i think this is the reason you can also do research on this.
So im going to end the article here. I think that you enjoyed this. So see you soon.
