It's OK to fall in love with this 1971 Chevelle ragtop, because we already have. Big power from a big block under the hood gives it the go to match its show, which is a stunning black and silver paint job and tastefully updated interior. We sell a lot of Chevelles, but not many of them talk to us like this one does. Chevy didn't build a Chevelle this nasty in 1971, and one look will tell you all you need to know about it. From the spectacular black paint over laser-straight bodywork to the correctly-executed details like the blacked-out grille and SS emblems, it certainly looks like a show car. A cowl-induction hood with locking pins is the sole deviation from OEM specs, but it makes a big impact on a car that gets everything right. The stripes are buried under the clear for a seamless look and the use of silver instead of the usual white gives it a custom look without screaming about it. I'm a fan of the 1971 single-headlight front-end, and the beautifully chromed bumpers make a powerful statement against the inky black paint. If you don't think this thing looks fast just sitting still, get your head examined. The interior has also been honed to a razor-sharp edge in terms of both style and function. The biggest addition is a set of deeply bolstered Procar black bucket seats, whose vertical pleats give them a natural look in the vintage Chevelle. They even match the reupholstered rear bench pretty well. Gray carpets lighten things up a bit, and a center console with the famous horseshoe shifter will be cool forever. A Grant mahogany steering wheel adds a touch of elegance, framing the original gauges, which, sadly, don't tell you much. An AM/FM/cassette head unit has been neatly installed in the original radio's location, and it sounds great thanks to a few layers of Dynamat under the carpet. The matching black convertible top fits well and offers a glass rear window and fitted black boot, while the spotless trunk offers a reproduction mat and full jack assembly. Don't worry, this Chevelle has the horsepower to cash the checks its bodywork is writing. It's a 396 cubic inch big block topped by an Edelbrock intake and Thunder Series carb, both finished in sparkling Endurashine. There's also a lot of chrome, and anything that wasn't polished or chromed got a coat of Chevy Orange paint, so it looks right at home in the black engine bay. A serpentine belt system was installed to manage the accessories, and there's an aluminum radiator up front. Ceramic-coated long-tube headers feed a 2.5-inch dual exhaust system with an X-pipe and Flowmasters, and the TH350 transmission powers a 12-bolt full of easy-cruising 3.08 gears. Add in some KYB shocks, a quick-ratio steering box, and that lowered stance, and this big convertible actually starts to feel agile. Part of the credit for that surely goes to the gorgeous 17-inch Boyd Coddington wheels wrapped in Kumho performance tires. Yes, it's every bit as awesome as it looks in photos. Carefully built with only the best parts, you'll have a hard time finding more Chevelle for less cash. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
