NBC's "This Is Us" is set to return on Feb. 7 with episode 14. In episode 11, Jack had to sell his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle in order to raise extra funds for the house he was going to buy.

Jack Pearson (played by Milo Ventimiglia) had a beloved Chevrolet Chevelle. It was a beautiful car that was well-maintained. In episode 11, Jack and Rebecca (played by Mandy Moore) were discussing the need to move into a bigger apartment after discovering that they were going to have triplets. Jack sold his car, got a loan from his father, and asked for an increase in his job to scrape the money together to buy an unfinished house.

1970 Chevrolet Chevelle. Jack sold his Chevrolet muscle car. The Chevelle is attractive, aggressive, and stylish. It is a classic beauty that will surely turn heads. In "This Is Us", people often commented about how beautiful the car was.

Top Speed reported that the Chevelle has a huge 7.4L V9 engine with an amazing 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. It can go from 0-60mph in only 6 seconds and do a quarter mile in 13.7 seconds.

Originally released in 1964, the Chevrolet Chevelle took the world by storm. The entire Detroit market was focused on creating faster and more exciting vehicles similar to this muscle car.

The car's best-known model is the 1970 Chevelle. Car and Driver reported that the Chevrolet muscle car was once of the fastest non-race cars that hit the tracks in Detroit. Moreover, in order to comply with California noise laws, the muscle car's exhaust had to be restricted.

Additionally, while the Chevelle is a muscle car many customers chose it as an economical family car. Perhaps the "This Is Us" big three would have really enjoyed riding in the car if Jack did not sell it. It was not expensive to operate and maintain unlike larger models such as the Impala. It also had enough room to seat a family of five in good comfort. It also has power steering, power brakes, automatic transmission, stereo radio, and air conditioning. 

While the Chevelle is a classic car, it is still a top competitor for the best muscle car. It was a sad moment for Jack when he had to sell his car but it was with good reason. "This Is Us" is set to return with episode 14 on Feb. 7.
