During 1971, the voting age in the United States is lowered to 18yrs old when the 26th Amendment to the US Constitution is ratified, Walt Disney World opens, and this Forest Green and white 1971 Chevelle Malibu rolls off the assembly line. Now with only 64,000 original miles on her, a new 4bbl carburetor was added in 2012 and repainted the factory Forest Green in 2015.
The 1971 Chevelles were treated to new front-end and rear-end styling that included large Power-Beam single-unit headlights, a reworked grille and bumper, and integral park/signal/marker lights. New dual round taillights were integral with the back bumper. Because SS models suffered heavy insurance surcharges, Chevrolet introduced the "Heavy Chevy" at midyear, which was based on the base Chevelle, and was available with any V8 engine except the 454, which was exclusive to SS models. The standard Chevelle SS engine was a two-barrel 350-cubic-inch V8 rated at 245 HP. Optional was a four-barrel carbureted version of the 350 V8 HP. The 402 cid big-block engine continued to be optional as the SS 396 but was only available in one horsepower rating, 300 HP, and was not available with cowl induction. The base LS5 454 V8 produced 365 gross and 285 HP, but cowl induction was available that produced more power because of the air induction and louder exhaust system. The LS6 454 option, which was originally announced as a regular production option on the Chevelle SS for 1971, was dropped early in the model year and no official records indicate that any 1971 Chevelles were assembled with the LS6 engine.
GM mandated all divisions design their engines to run on lower-octane regular, low-lead or unleaded gasoline. To permit usage of the lower-octane fuels, all engines featured low compression ratios (9:1 and lower; well below the 10.25-11.25:1 range on high-performance engines of 1970 and earlier). This move reduced horsepower ratings on the big-block engines to 300 for the 402 cubic-inch V8 but the LS5 454 option got an "advertised" five-horsepower increase to 365.
