Gateway Classic cars of San Antonio/Austin is super excited to present possibly one of the coolest 1971 Chevy Chevelles we've seen in quite a while. Yes, this IS a 1971 Chevelle, and yes, you ARE seeing a 1970 front clip & rear bumper! This custom build has been completely done from top to bottom. Starting with the boxed, media blasted & painted frame up to an all-new suspension using heavy duty springs & tubular A-Arms, this bad boy is for "GO" as much as it is "Show". This is a no nonsense 1971 Chevelle. Power is supplied by a 2015 6.2L LS3/6L80E 6-speed automatic combo that is out of a 2015 Chevy SS & was showing only 19k miles on it when it was swapped and is now right about 30k total miles. These LS3's were originally estimated at 415hp without any adds, but the addition of the ceramic coated headers, a custom fabbed 3" X-piped exhaust and a simple tune have increased that rating very nicely! The power is running through a 12-bolt Detroit Locker Posi rearend fitted with some new Yukon axles, bearings, a very highway friendly 3.42 gearing and all that is all setting on a killer looking set of 18" Foose wheels with Nitto rubber, assuring many enjoyable road trips while not having to stop at every gas pump on the way. The complete car was Dynomatted before being reassembled and all wiring was redone using an EZWire system. Inside the Chevelle is a retro-looking set of analog/digital of Dakota Digital gauges, a cold blowing Vintage Air system, a retro look AM/FM/Bluetooth, some nicely finished buckets, a leather-wrapped steering wheel w/ tilt, cruise control, a center console & even a new headliner that all show better than new. This is the type of build that a lot of us dream about...the combination of a classic American muscle car combined with the performance & reliability of a modern drivetrain.
