1971 Chevrolet Chevelle
There is no arguing that the Chevelle ranks among the most popular muscle cars and if you are in the market for one that you can hop in and drive anywhere, you just found it! This is a very nicely built 71 Chevelle that has the perfect combo of the vintage muscle look with modern features. It was done in a pro touring style so whether you are cruising down to the local car show or heading out on the Power Tour you can do it without a second thought. The car was originally built in Arlington, TX and sold to the first owner in Euless, TX. From there it was sold to the second and then current owner who are also a TX residents. The car underwent a complete body off rebuild that was completed in the summer of 2015. The chassis and body panels are all original as is the vinyl top which is something you don't see everyday. That shows how well it was cared for even prior to the rebuild. The frame has been entirely powder coated and the body fully undercoated to avoid any future rust issues. During the process it was closely inspected for rust and found to be entirely rust free. The paint has been redone in a nice Black with Silver racing stripes. Red pinstriping frames the center stripes which adds a really nice touch of color to the exterior. All of the chrome and stainless has been replaced to insure a like new shining finish. The car looks extremely tough rolling down the road and the aftermarket custom Boss wheels are the perfect match for the car.
A new 383 stroker motor has been added under the hood and puts out 453 HP which is plenty to get those wheels spinning. The car drives down the road well and is fast in the short distance while still being a comfortable cruiser on the highway. The motor has been very nicely dressed up with multiple billet and chrome components throughout. A custom polished stainless piece was created for the front gap behind the grill and helps to make the engine compartment show ready. The motor is paired with a 700R4 automatic transmission with overdrive that transfers power back to the 12 bolt positrac rear end. the entire suspension system has been replaced with CPP components as well as the brakes which have been converted to 4 wheel power discs. That along with Power Steering makes the car just as easy to drive as your company car.
The fun doesn't stop there because the interior is just as nice as the rest. Prior to the installation the original floor panels were gone over with a fine tooth comb and found to be in great condition. The entire cab was then topped with sound proof Dyno-Mat. Done in a plush Black leather upholstery the entirely new interior looks great and is very comfortable. It features high back bucket seats up front, the original bench in rear and custom door panels. Between the seats a custom center console was constructed to house the Lokar shifter and incorporate 2 cupholders. The dash was very nicely done incorporating modern features with a nod to the original layout and look. Autometer gauges were frenched into a custom panel and with their brushed aluminum finish beautiful is the only way to describe them. We know, gauges are "beautiful"? Well to a car guy, YES! The dash is also where you will find the custom Kenwood stereo, Vintage Air AC controls and the billet power window switches. An Ididit tilt steering column sits nicely in front of the driver and is topped off with a woodgrain steering wheel.
This sweet Chevelle is ready for a new home and to replicate its style would cost you a lot more than the asking price of $58,250.00!
