OVERVIEW: All Chevy magazine was published monthly by McMullen Publishing. Content was all about Chevy performance including the
latest tidbits from Detroit and the after-market scene. The editor featured "classic Chevrolets" which included 1955-1957s, '60s era muscle
cars and occasionally a newer or older pre-1948 vehicle. It included hot-to's and the latest technology tips intended to be useful
and less about theory. Covers generally featured nostalgic imagery and earnest but goofy staged scenes associated with car repair, street racing,
beach side fun, baseball, car detailing, drive-ins and high school.
Publishing began in August, 1987 in a full-sized format. It started as a quarterly publication, moved to bi-annual, and then became a monthly title
in June, 1989.
As background, Tom McMullen was the founder and publisher of
Street Rodder magazine. McMullen published numerous other titles when this publication started, including
Truckin', Popular Cars, Kit Car Illustrated,
VW Trends, and Mustang Illustrated.
In May 1995, All Chevy was purchased as part of a larger transaction involving multiple titles by K-III
Inc. (later Primedia Inc.) for $55 million. Publication continued for a few more months after the acquisition.
