This is the kind of muscle car that commands attention. It's an amazingly bright red 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle SS tribute coupe with a power-built 454 big block growling from under the hood. So it has the look and the sound to turn heads whether it's across the show field or just at a stoplight.
Bright red with black SS stripes painted on top - you sure aren't sneaking around when you take this one out on the streets. But it takes more than just investing in upgraded and glossy paint to make a superior muscle car. Chevelles of this era have that perfectly balanced design of being both sleek and muscular at the same time, and so a good classic will emphasize both areas. The chrome bumpers are newer, the panels align nicely, and all of the trim is good and correct. This is balanced by aggressive elements like the 15-inch SS wheels, hood pins, wide dual exhaust tips, and the power dome of the cowl induction hood. It makes for a total package that knows how to best represent the icon.
Inside, that same vintage but aggressive feeling continues. It starts with the dark as midnight interior. It's always great when the exterior stripes are a preview of the color inside. Plus, you get it has plenty of upgrades like the bucket seats and center console with an iconic horseshoe shifter. In fact, while this Chevelle has the size to carry family and friends in comfort, you can tell the main focus is on the driver. That's why you have features you don't find in too many other classics, like an oil pressure readout in the auxiliary gauges and a tilt steering column.
This is the kind of motor that will make you proud to lift the hood at car shows. After all, everyone loves the sight of a big block V8 filling in all that space in the engine bay, and this is quite distinctive with the valve covers that have a simulated carbon fiber look white also coordinating with the orange block. This V8 is said to be a performance build with a Comp Cams Xtreme Energy camshaft, a Holley 750 four-barrel carburetor, a one-inch spacer, an Edelbrock Torker intake, and Hedman headers feeding the dual exhaust. There are also good supporting components, like an HEI distributor and an Optima red top battery. The three-speed automatic transmission is a Jackson Performance Street Strip TH400 with a 3,000 stall. This feeds into a 12-bolt rear end with Richmond 4.10 gears. Plus, there's power steering, power brakes, and front discs. So you've got an iconic muscle machine that looks and sounds mean, but it's quite pleasant to drive.
The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records. This big block Chevelle is turn-key ready for fun right now, but something this attractive won't wait forever. Call today!!!
