Big, ad, nd brutal, his sparkling silver 1971 Chevelle SS is the muscle car you've always dreamed of owning. Tons of power thanks to a built big block, classic hi-performance look, nd finish quality that'll make you the star at the local cruise night. This is muscle car done right.
It's a good thing they ditched the original Cottonwood Green paint and gave this Chevelle a coat of bright Cortez Silver instead. Superbly finished, he sleek metallic paint always looks right on the A-body and you can see from our photos how it highlights the dramatic body lines that are obscured with some of the more ordinary colors. Look at the gentle crease that defines the fender lines, he subtle flare of the rear quarters, nd the peak that runs from the roof down to the rear bumper, ll of which are often overlooked on lesser cars. Those details stand out because someone spent the time to keep them visible, nd that's not cheap. They also laid down some proper black SS stripes, hich have a bit of metallic in the mix are buried under the clear for a super slick look and an impossible shine. You can also forget about wax build-up on the edges, hich makes lesser cars look unfinished. Shiny chrome bumpers, olished stainless details, nd proper SS badges throughout ensure this car won't get overlooked. And just in case anyone doubts the performance within, here's a cowl-induction hood with locking pins and proper '454' emblems on the fenders.
Much of the black bucket seat interior was replaced during the restoration and expertly done to make this car stand out in a crowd. Buckets in an SS are the only way to fly, nd you'll find it's easy to get comfortable behind the wheel. Since it's a color change (the cowl tag says it originally carried Rapallo cloth, hich is kind of tan), verything that's black is brand new, rom the door panels to the seat covers, eadliner to carpets. The dash is full of proper SS gauges, ncluding a tach and someone has also added a transmission temperature and oil pressure gauge on the A-pillar, ital for proper performance. This one is built for combat, ut there's plenty of luxury, ncluding A/C, console, ower steering and power brakes, hich are pretty much mandatory when there's this much horsepower on board. A newer AM/FM stereo lives in the original dash slot and powers custom speakers in the kick panels, hile the trunk is properly finished with a correct mat atop spatter-finish paint.
Beautiful cosmetics aside, his car is really about the powerplant, nd it's a doozie. 454 cubic inches of Chevy big block topped by an Edelbrock intake, big 4-barrel carb, nd long-tube headers to make it cackle. It's very clearly hardware-focused under the hood, ith that big cowl-induction air cleaner and chrome valve covers to set it off, nd a modern billet accessory drive improves reliability and looks. It starts easily and rumbles like it's making a threat at idle, nd you can be sure that there's torque everywhere on the tach. A giant radiator keeps it cool without effort, nd thanks to the 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission, t's a very civilized cruiser at speed. The undercarriage isn't detailed for show but the hardware is what you'd expect, ncluding the Flowmaster mufflers and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end hanging on boxed control arms. 20-inch wheels keep the muscle car look while adding staggered 245/40/18 front and 275/30/20 rear performance radials.
Brutally fast, xceptionally pretty, nd totally ready to rumble, his Chevelle is the car you've admired but never thought you would own. Don't wait, all today!
