Chevrolet gave its popular Chevelle Super Sport coupe chrome bumpers and mirrors, dual exhausts, 225/70R14 front and rear tires, and full-size spare tire in the trunk.

In 1969, the Chevelle Super Sport was either a Malibu or 300 Deluxe Malibu equipped with a 396 engine and additional trim package instead of being a separate model. The model year was the only one in which consumers could order the base-model 300 Deluxe with the SS package. Chevrolet produced about 86,310 1969 SS Chevelles. The Detroit automaker changed little of the car's exterior look but gave it new taillights. Chevy gave the Chevelle an engine change late in the model year, when it bored out the 396 engine to 402 cubic inches.
