GROUND THUMPING 572CI, SLICK BLACK PAINT, 12 BOLT REAR, PWR STEER & BRAKES, NICE
This is one classy looking Chevelle dressed up in Black and White that is fun to show up in at cruises, car shows, or restaurants and clubs on a date night. But if you like the sound of big-block thunder too, then this car becomes an extra special ride that may be a car built just for you.
Considered by many to be the best-looking muscle car of all time, the 1971 Chevelle has smooth, graceful curves that flow down the length of the car. The classic Black paint highlights those lines beautifully and bold White SS stripes are painted on and clear coated. It's a look that will never go out of style. A newer chrome front bumper leads the way with a black SS grill trimmed in chrome flanked by dual headlights. Hood pins hold down a Cowl Induction hood which announces that in script and SS 454 badging appears on the front fenders. There is a nice rake to the car which gives it a wicked stance and is a hint that this car means business. The wheel wells are trimmed in chrome and the back bumper finishes out the look nicely with an SS emblem in the middle of the four simple taillights. The car sits on American racing alloys which are wrapped with 225/50/R17s up front, and 275/50/R17s in the rear.
Open the door and you will find a white interior that adds a bit of a tuxedo clean, formal look to the inside. It complements the SS stripes but contrasts with the intimidating looks of the outside. The door panel has a pleated center section, is trimmed with chrome piping and has an SS emblem on it. The front seats have been replaced at some point and look like new. Also new are the dash, carpets and headliner, all in black. The whole interior is neat, clean and sharp looking although there are still a couple details to be worked out with the horn, radio, tach and heat not operating properly. The dash is stock although a couple SunPro gauges were added to keep accurate tabs on oil pressure and water temperature which are mounted just above the horseshoe shifter for the automatic trans. A brushed metal 3-spoke steering wheel has a Bowtie center along with fuel pump and kill switches mounted under the column.
Pull the pins, pop the hood and you will find the source of that big-block thunder. It is a 572 cubic inch powerhouse nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. Compressed engines are nice, but sometimes there really is no replacement for displacement. There is a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner feeding a QFT 4-barrel carburetor that is sitting up tall on a high-rise intake. An aftermarket fuel rail with Marshall pressure gauge assures and adequate supply of fuel to the engine, and painted valve covers announce the displacement, which just for some metric fun, is 9.4 Liters. An MSD 6AL ignition system provides plenty of hot, reliable spark. There are newer belts and hoses along with a newer power brake booster and master cylinder. A chrome panel trims out the top of the radiator. Hooker long tube headers lead back through Flowmaster mufflers. Power flows through a 3-speed transmission to a 12-bolt differential, and front disc brakes assure that you can reel this car back in if you decide to let it run.
Like a body builder in a tuxedo, this car has tons of brute strength all dressed up for a night on the town. If you like that idea, come on down and check this car out.
