Vehicle Description

This 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Tribute has that sleek and commanding look we all love in a coupe built in the best of the muscle car era. But beneath this skin, this classic is a true restomod with fuel-injected V8 power, updated suspension, and an overdrive transmission. So you get the style you love and an even hardier heart.

The '71 Chevelle just seems like the right place to start for a car that's going to be vintage but upgraded. After all, this has a huge sense of timeless style with a sloping fastback silhouette that shows off both a hint of flying buttress in the rear as well as the desirable pillarless hardtop profile. There's arguably no better color combo for a muscle car than red with black stripes painted on top. That only gets better when this was an upgrade later in life, and it continues to have the shine of a quality application. Good sheetmetal, quality gaps, and mirror-like chrome bumpers all add to this car's fundamental appeal. Plus, it has all the right sporty style with the upgraded cowl hood, SS badging, wide dual exhaust tips, and a set of American Racing Torq Thrust polished alloys.

Upgrading the interior to a classic black is another great move to make sure this one shows off its muscle car appeal to the fullest. More than just the right color, this is a nice place to spend some time with insignia trim upholstery, taut door panels, and plush carpeting. Not only do the two wide bench seats give family and friends plenty of room to spread out, but also there's an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo to keep them all happy. Of course, a car like this is built to be great even when you're going solo, too. That's why you have great upgrades like the classic Chevy sports steering wheel, and it's mounted on a tilt column to give you a clear view to the sporty round gauge package. And the best driver-oriented upgrade comes with you open the hood.

You'll love showing off the engine bay, because this one know how to showcase its modern 6.0-liter LS V8. It's a tidy and well-integrated setup, and there are even some fun details, like the aluminum panels used to simulate classic valve covers. This fuel-injected powerhouse was borrowed from GM's truck program. So it's a stout and powerful setup. It's mated to the correct four-speed automatic transmission, which provides you with the right balance of strength and overdrive comfort. The undercarriage photos show off fresher components as well as a strong 12-bolt rear and sway bars front and rear. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes with front discs, and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires afforded by the wheel upgrade.

This SS tribute has the classic muscle car look you love, and the smoother modern powerhouse makes it even easier to enjoy it of near or far. That's the beauty of a well-done restomod, and it can all be yours if you call today!
