A bright blue and bright chrome will make sure this 1971 Chevrolet
Chevelle SS 454 Tribute always catches plenty of eyes. But within
the style is also the substance of proper big block power, an
overdrive transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This coupe gives the impression of distinction and quality. The
blue is close to the factory Ascot Blue, and it's part of a later
respray that gives this car a nice shine. There's also later
investments in the chrome bumpers, full trim, clear headlights, and
good window rubber to get the fundamental right on this coupe. So
you're going to like it even before you think about how it gets the
Super Sport look correct. That means upgrades like the dual racing
stripes, cowl-induction hood, hood pins, wide dual exhaust tips,
and appropriate badges throughout. And while this gets the classic
Chevelle look right, you also can't help but spot the polished TSW
alloys with the larger and meatier rear tires. It's an instant
signal of an upgraded machine.
The factory-correct blue interior has a lot of stock style with
just the right amount of investments. For example, the classic
bench seats are for those who want a true vintage experience. And
there are newer door panels, dash pad, and headliner to keep it
feeling fresh without losing the classic feeling. The same goes for
the gauge package that gives you the speedometer as long as the
horizon, and there's even a Delco AM radio still there for display.
The spacious trunk has the cool spatter paint look, and you have a
full-sized spare just in case. In fact, the only obvious upgrade
you're likely to spot is the wood rimmed steering wheel. It's a
symbol of this coupe's upgraded driving experience.
We all love to the sight of Chevy's famous 454 cubic-inch V8, and
this one likes to radiate from within the dark and tidy engine bay.
This includes the classic orange block, bright air topper, and
shining valve covers. There are even nice supporting pieces like
the newer brake booster and the oversized radiator. The big block
is upgraded for power with an Edelbrock low rise intake,
four-barrel carburetor, and headers feeing the big 2.5-inch pipes
of the dual exhaust. And more than just a growling motor, this
Chevelle has been upgrade to be a terrific driver. The upgrade to
the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission means highway-friendly
overdrive. Plus, there's four-wheel power disc brakes, modern
performance tires, power steering, and an SS-style rear suspension
with stronger boxed arms and sway bar.
Here's an iconic Chevelle that has a distinct look, big block
power, and terrific driving upgrades. That means you're looking at
a total package classic that's ready to hit the streets right now.
