1971 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Additional Info:

This is a ground up restored, #s matching big block SS. Even the underside is detailed. Documented with copy of original build sheet.
EXTERIOR Finished in a striking yellow with the black SS stripes. The body has very clean metal. It fits nice, it is straight with no bubbles or issues I could find. New black vinyl top. Upfront the bumpers, turn signal bezels, grill, hood pins all look new. In back the bumper is a very nice original, has a new license plate bracket, trunk emblem and new lenses. The windshield, weather strips and window seals have been replaced. Door jambs are painted just as nice as the outside, new sill plates.
INTERIOR: It is in really nice shape. New cushions and reproduction upholstery. Also new seat backs and headrests. New carpet and carpeted floor mats. New headliner, door panels, window cranks, handles and armrests. The center console and dash is very nice original with no holes or cracks. They installed a retro stereo fitted right into the factory hole. You can monitor the engine vitals with the gauge cluster neatly mounted under the dash.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It is actually over restored because it's much glossier and prettier than the factory would have made it. The yellow jambs and bottom side of the hood are painted as nice as the car. Inner fenders, firewall and core support is all done in a very smooth gloss black finish. The 400 big block is vin # matched to the car. It is upgraded with Edelbrock intake, Holley carb with electric choke, HEI ignition and headers. Has a clean coat of Chevy orange paint with chrome valve covers, air cleaner, goose neck and alternator. All the components look real good- brackets, pulleys, master cylinder, wiper motor etc. Wiring and hoses all look neatly, properly run. The air conditioning system has been upgraded with new air compressor and R134 freon.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Has a really clean, all metal trunk compartment with no signs of patches. Nice spatter coat finish paint. Includes a mat, jack and spare. The trunk jamb and bottom of the lid is painted real glossy, has new jacking instruction decal and weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: Super clean metal, it was so clean they painted it gloss black. The floors and frame are smooth. Has F-41 suspension which includes sway bars and boxed control arms. Bottom of the motor is spotless, has high torque starter. The Turbo 400 trans is correct to the car and clean looking. The 12 bolt rear end is original to the car. Has a fat dual exhaust system. Shocks, brake lines are newer.
There are a lot of clones out there which is fine, but if you want a true #s matching, documented big block Chevelle SS there are not many to choose from. Here is one right in front of you that happens to be restored beautifully!
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
