Gateway Classic Cars Houston Showroom is excited to offer this 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle for sale. This bad boy is a real sleeper, too - a classic American muscle car that combines vintage aesthetics with modern performance. This beauty is dressed in a striking Marina Blue exterior, complemented by a matching blue interior (recently installed by Westside Upholstery using new synthetic leather seating and AAC OEM-style carpet), creating a cohesive and eye-catching look. Under the hood, you'll find a Don Hardy Racing 418 CID LS3 V8 engine, equipped with dual quad Holley Sniper EFI fuel injection for superior performance and efficiency. The engine also features coated headers and relocated coil packs for improved performance and underhood aesthetics. A serpentine belt accessory drive ensures smooth operation, while the heavy-duty Stage II 4L80E 4-Speed automatic transmission, built by Century Automotive and Transmission, guarantees seamless gear changes. This powerhouse is further enhanced by a 258mm Pro-Billet Stage II Torque Converter for optimal torque delivery. A massive Proformance aluminum radiator (with twin Spal 16" electric fans) keeps the powerplant properly cooled. Out back, a GM 12-bolt rear end with 3.73:1 gears and an Eaton Posi unit ensures that you'll get all of that power to the ground via the Mickey Thompson E/T Street drag radials. There are even hidden windshield washer-type water nozzles poking out of the frame ahead of the rear tires for when you want to engage in a little water-aided burnout fun, and opening up the QTP electric exhaust cutouts when you do that ensures that everyone nearby will get an earful of all of that power! The 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle is not just about performance, it also offers a comfortable and enjoyable ride. The Vintage Air air conditioning system (which has never been charged) will ensure a cool and comfortable cabin (once you charge it with R134a), even on the hottest days. The car rides on chromed steel GM Rallye-style wheels, adding a touch of classic elegance to its robust profile. For your entertainment, the car is equipped with an AM/FM/CD head unit. The automatic convertible top allows you to enjoy the open air at the touch of a button. Safety is also a priority, with 4-wheel Wilwood power disc brakes featuring multipiston calipers (6-piston front, 4-piston rear) and slotted/drilled rotors, along with a high-pressure CPP master cylinder for immense stopping power. The suspension is a full Ridetech setup, with their Street Grip setup in front (including a beefy swaybar), and a full adjustable coilover setup (with swaybar) out back. The car also features power steering for effortless maneuverability, radial tires for superior road grip, and seatbelts for added safety. Inside, the blue vinyl interior adds a touch of retro charm, creating a comfortable and stylish environment for both the driver and passengers. In summary, this 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle is a remarkable blend of classic style and modern performance - a true wolf in sheep's clothing. This is a car that commands attention and delivers an unforgettable driving experience, so contact our Houston Showroom today!
