Chevy Classics was an annual publication by Petersen Publishing from the Car Craft editorial team. It focused on 1955 to 1957 Chevrolets.

In the 1970s and 1980s, Petersen used these annual publications strategically to test reader interest of a given vehicle or topic and potentially use it as a launching pad for a bi-monthly or monthly title. This proved successful with several other titles, but Petersen never had a dedicated monthly magazine for the tri-five Chevies. The editorial team later added Novas and Camaros to the content along with the standard tri-Five sedans.

When Petersen's publishing groups evolved in the early to mid-1980s, Chevy Classics was issued under two publishing groups -- Hot Rod Action Series (Action) and Car Craft Performance Series (CCPS). Hence the different numbering schemes.
