This is the kind of muscle car that commands attention. It’s an amazingly bright red 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle SS tribute coupe with a performance-built 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 – you sure aren’t sneaking around when you take this one out on the streets. But it takes more than just investing in a recent professional paint application 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 mirror-like, and all of the trim is complete and right. This is balanced by the aggressive elements like the hood pins and cowl induction hood. And these two ideas of premium and intimidation merge perfectly on the 15-inch Cragar SS wheels.
In a sea of black interiors, the dark saddle keeps up this coupe’s distinct and premium attitude. It’s the original color to the car, but it has plenty of upgrades like the bucket seats and center console with iconic horseshoe shifter. The driver also gets a NK4 sports steering wheel and beyond that are the upgraded round gauges cluster. So what you get is a Chevelle that can carry all your friends and family, but it’s the driver that clearly gets the most fun.
This is the kind of motor that will make you proud to lift the hood at car shows. Everyone loves the sight of a big block V8 filling in all that space in the engine bay. The 454 cubic-inch motor has a great presentation with the bold orange block, tidy wires & hoses, and plenty of added polish on the valve covers & air topper. But in a car with so much Super Sport appeal, you’ll be glad to hear it has also been enhanced with performance features like a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, MSD ignition, and long tube headers that feed the thunderous dual exhaust. It’s a true street-eating machine, but that’s not the whole picture. The V8 has been treated to good maintenance, so it fires up with ease. Plus, the power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes are great anytime driving features. So you’ve got an iconic muscle machine that looks mean, sounds mean, but is quite pleasant to drive.
Complete with owner’s manual, this is a quality build that won’t break the bank. It’s turn-key ready for fun right now, but something this attractive won’t wait forever. Call today!!!
