1975 Chevy Chevelle Laguna S-3

1975 Chevy Chevelle Laguna S-3 for Popular Hot Rodding magazine

Here's the third generation of Chevelle produced by Chevrolet was an extensively used body style in NASCAR competition from 1973 to 1977. The Chevelle Laguna S-3 in particular was extremely successful in winning 34 races and earning the first two of three consecutive Winston Cup championships driven by Cale Yarborough.

The 1975 Laguna S-3 was introduced mid-year in January 1975. This time, it wore a rakishly slanted, urethane-covered aero-style nose designed for NASCAR and louvered opera windows. And as the pictures are a Chevy Chevelle Laguna S-3 built in 1975. Considered a limited edition model by NASCAR, the Laguna S-3 was ineligible for competition following the 1977 season.
