1971 Chevrolet Chevelle
The Chevelle was a mid sized automobile introduced to the world by Chevrolet in 1964. They were produced for 3 generations with various body styles offered throughout. The Malibu was the top of the line and the Chevelle proved to be one of Chevrolets most popular nameplates. Interestingly the Malibu name was retired for 14 years before being reintroduced in 1997 and currently the Malibu is the only Sedan Chevrolet offers in the US. This very clean 1971 Chevelle .....
belongs to the 2nd generation which spanned from 1968 to 1972. While the body remained similar throughout their run a big change was introduced in 1971 with a redesigned grill, single headlights, and 4 taillights mounted in the bumper. This Chevelle has been totally redone in a restomod style with a classic exterior but mechanically modernized to make it a great cruiser. The body is all solid and the nice deep Blue exterior with dual White racing stripes has an excellent finish. All of the chrome work and stainless trim is cleanly mounted in place and has a very nice shine. The glass is all good and is slightly tinted. From the outside it looks very stock except for the wheels which have been swapped out for 18 inch 5 spoke Boyd Coddingtons with Bridgestone Potenza tires that look great on the car.
Under the hood it features a crate 350ci motor that has been dressed up with a chrome air cleaner and Chevy bowtie valve covers. The car has a great sound with long tube headers into a H-pipe dual exhaust that exits through Flowmaster mufflers out of the rear. Combined with the motor is an automatic transmission that shifts smoothly with no issues to transfer power back to the 12 bolt rear end. The suspension has been all redone and upgraded with Global West tubular A arms and Hotchkiss sway bars. Other very nice upgrades to make it a comfortable driver is Vintage AC system, power steering, and power brakes with Wildwood discs under all 4 corners. It really has been set up to be a very nice show car that is also fun and easy to drive.
The interior was all redone in Tan and has a split bench up front with headrests. The carpet, headliner, seats, and door panels are all in really nice condition. The dash is has a very stock look with a new factory dash pad and faux wood trim. The AC vents are inset into the dash and it utilizes factory controls so it was likely a factory AC optioned car. The gauges are all the stock setup and are working properly. In order to avoid cutting up the original dash the original radio was left in place and instead a Kenwood stereo was mounted underneath. To go with it an amp and 6 CD changer have been mounted in the trunk. Speaking of the trunk it is all nicely painted and the trunk pan and all floor pans are good.
This beautiful classic has nicely combined upgraded features with classic styling so all it needs is a new garage to call home. This beauty will take home awards and put a smile on your face while driving to the show.
