Vehicle Description

This 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu offers the best of both worlds. The correct-colors and numbers-matching V8 is enhanced with a modern shine and performance upgrades. It's a complete package that makes for a great driving classic at an obtainable price.


This is arguably one of the best years for Chevelles with the single headlight setup and long, streamlined rear deck. It only gets better when someone invested in a professional respray of the original code-75 Cranberry Red. But more than just giving a modern update and a clearcoat shine, this Chevelle also got some cool performance touches like the painted dual SS stripes, hood pins, and a power bulge cowl hood. It was built before '70s new bumper laws so those big chrome kings fit much snugger to the body, and the rear one still houses the taillights in a very cool way. The full package is topped off with 16-inch black and chrome American Racing Torq Thrust wheels to perfectly mix classic style with modern appeal.


The factory-correct black interior looks like it has been given in investment to make sure the bench seats, door panels, and headliner all keep their deep, dark appearance. An intermediate car in the '70s like this Chevelle means plenty of room to carry up to five other people. That's why you can keep them in comfort with features like the heat/defrost and the Pioneer AM/FM/cassette stereo with Blaupunkt equalizer. But really you want this Chevelle because you're a driver. That's why it comes with a grippy three-spoke Grant GT steering wheel and a full set of auxiliary gauges so you always know what's going on under the hood.


It's nice to have the numbers-matching 350 cubic-inch small block under the hood. But it's even better when it has been upgraded for both presentation and performance. The shining air gabber, Chevrolet valve covers, and tidy wires look great. Beyond this you'll start to spot upgrades like the Edelbrock intake, four-barrel carburetor, Mallory ignition system, and headers that feed a rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust. The motor is mated to a TH350 three-speed automatic that then sends power to a stout 12-bolt rear end with Positraction and a versatile 3.42 ratio. Add in power steering, power brakes with front discs, and the grip of modern Kumho tires, and this is a great any time driving classic.


Complete with the factory buildsheet, owner's manual, and maintenance records, this Chevelle is truly the total package. You get the prestige of originality with plenty of extra flash and performance added in. A deal like this won't stay with us long. Call today!!!
