For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

If you like your 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle fast, bold, and important, then this numbers-matching LS3 big block SS tribute is what you've been looking for. It has the mix of a well-coordinated color combo and upgrades like the overdrive transmission to make for a true cruiser that you'll love to be seen driving.


Chevrolet did not offer an Orange this bold in 1971, but a muscle car like this absolutely deserves it. We like how this upgrade is an upper-level driver-quality finish. That means you drive this without getting nervous and it has a good gloss to shine with the chrome bumpers. This has all the best Super Sport features like the cowl hood, hood pins, full badging, and wide exhaust tips. Black looks outstanding against the orange, and so we are glad they painted those racing stripes on top for a crisp and clean durability. Plus, the blackout grille and black-painted SS mag wheels coordinate to make this an intimidating car that also has an added sense of style.


There's even more blackout stylishness inside. There has been a solid investment in the upholstery, carpeting, headliner, dash, and other fundamentals to make this quite an inviting classic. You'll love the little details, like the insignia trim in the doors, working dome light, and provisions for factory air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And you have the right SS-style driver feeling with front bucket seats, a center console in-between, Chevy's horseshoe shifter, a round gauge package, and the NK4 sports steering wheel.


One of the most potent powerhouses for 1971 was the LS3 402 cubic-inch V8 big block. It's the kind of motor you're going to be showing off because this is the numbers-matching unit. Just like the rest of the car, the motor has led a cared-for life with good maintenance. This goes beyond the tidy appearance of the engine bay and the proper shiny elements like the air cleaner and valve covers, and it even includes an HEI distributor and a newer battery. The mighty V8 inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and the headers add power and rumble to the dual exhaust. It all means you can fire this big motor up with confidence and go cruising on a whim. In fact, this one has a lot of great features to get you down the road with ease. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is an ideal pairing that can handle the power while also giving you highway-friendly overdrive. You also have a confident driver thanks to the SS-style setup with a 12-bolt Positraction rear end, boxed trailing arms, and rear sway bar. Plus, there are great anytime features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As.


There are no definitive body codes for 1971 that confirm a Super Sport, but when you have the numbers-matching LS3 under the hood, you definitely know it was made to hit the streets like a proper SS. That's why this hardtop icon has extra distinction, and also why we love that this one was made to easily show off on the streets. Call today!!!
