You might be looking at this 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 because
of the cool blue/black exterior or is nice bucket seat inferior...
But we know the reason you're going to call is because of the
numbers-matching big block under the hood.
The paint makes a bold first impression. This is a few shades deeper than the factory Mulsanne Blue, and it has a superior luster thanks to a professional hand adding the updated paintwork. The result is a Chevelle that's more distinctive than a red or black one, but it still shines just as bright. Add to that the proper dual Super Sport stripes, cowl-induction hood, hood pins, and appropriate badges throughout. And the iconic Rally wheels are always a great finishing touch to the aggressive package. But even without all of these great standout SS features, you know you love this Chevelle. 1971 is arguably one of the best years for these coupes with the single headlight setup and streamlined rear deck. And the way the mirror-like rear bumper hugs the sheetmetal while incorporating the taillights is a masterful touch that will never be repeated again in manufacturing.
The exterior's attitude was built into the interior, too. After all, the premium black vinyl roof is a great preview of the inside. The seats, carpets, and door panels all have the deep, dark appearance of quality. Your left hand will grab the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and your right one rests comfortably on the iconic horseshoe shifter. This aggressive packaging is backed up by the desirable U14 full round gauge package that also makes room for the large tach. This is a great looking hardtop coupe that you'll love rolling down all the windows to show off the pillarless profile.
Take some real time to appreciate what you see when you pop the hood. We all love to the sight of Chevy's famous big block 454 V8, especially when it's dressed correctly in Chevy orange with bright valve covers and air grabber. But this one has the true distinction of being born this way. You're looking at a numbers-matching big block coupe. It inhales deeply through a correct Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with that special big block thunder from the dual exhaust. And more than just a monster motor, this Chevelle is a great cruiser thanks to power steering, front disc brakes, and the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission.
With the upgraded paint, right interior features, and the original big block, you're going to love showing off every inch of this classic Chevelle. But you only get to do that if you make it yours. So don't miss out, call today!
