From the 1971 Chevelle Sales Brochure:

"SS. First there was the 396. Then the 454. Now..."

"Don't panic. There's still an SS 454. Any car that's named the best of its kind in Car and Driver's ChoicePoll (the 1970 Chevelle SS 454) is sure to stay around. But for '71, the SS has seen a few changes. Few. But, meaningful. Some people wanted all the handling and appearance of the SS 454. But without the 454. So we made our SS package available for Malibu Sport Coupe or Convertible with any V8 engine except for the 307. There are two Turbo-Fire 350 V8s and a Turbo-Jet 400 V8 in addition to the 454. Whichever you pick, you'll still get all these SS features: power disc/drum brakes; black-accented grille; special suspension; a special domed hood with functional hood lock pins; left-hand remote control sport mirror; new 15" x 7" sport wheels; new F60 x 15 white-lettered tires; and a black-accented steering column and wheel with SS nameplate. And there are a few more things you can order. Like sport stripes on the hood and trunk lid, and bucket seats inside. We did it for those who just want to look the part, if you know what we mean. When that isn't good enough, there's the SS 454. 365 horsepower. 4-barrel carburetor. Cowl Induction hood is available (you step on the gas to shoot a swoosh of outside air into the engine). Sport stripes with CI hood. You can order a special 4-Speed or Turbo Hydra-matic transmission to go along with it. And more. After all, some of you haven't changed. And we're ready for that, too."

We encourage any and all potential bidders to please call up and ask any questions you may have about the car and come visit if possible as this ad just does not do this car justice for how beautiful it is and how wonderfully it drives. Although this car is very nicely redone, please keep in mind this caris nearly a 50 year old classic car with a slightly older yet very high dollar restoration and paint that you will find some imperfections in (although there are very few) and that it may need some odds and ends especially as you drive it more often.
