1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Drag Car
The age of muscle cars peaked as the 1970s began - and the 1970
Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 helped to herald the ascent. When GM
lifted its displacement ban on midsize cars, Pontiac, Oldsmobile
and Buick responded with 455ci mills with up to 370hp. Chevy's
retort was a 454ci V8 that started at 360hp and ended at a barbaric
450hp. This was the muscle car summit.
This drag strip modified Chevy, is being sold on a BILL OF SALE
ONLY, there is not a title. It is not street legal and does have a
current competition inspection sticker.
Rough with plenty of bondo and filled in areas that are not sanded
sufficiently, yielding a very scratchy undulations finish, that was
painted over by blue metallic. Plastic windows replace all glass.
New JEGS billet style wheels are covered in new drag slicks in the
rear, and narrow treads in front. A black fiberglass hood with a
large scoop covers the engine bay. Door frames have been eliminated
to allow for installation of the lightweight plastic windows.
Headlights have been covered over for aerodynamics, and front turn
signals taped over.

panels, carpet, seats etc. Battery shutoff, MSD electronics, 4000
