SS 454 LS5
This is a true dream muscle car. After all, a 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport with its original LS5 big block, four-on-the-floor, and factory-correct distinct color combo is exactly what we all want. So dig into all the details, but just know, it only gets better from here.
You can instantly tell there was a lot of time, care, and money invested in keeping this unique classic in this condition. The Nevada Silver is the factory-correct color, but it has been given a modern professional respray to give it the kind of clearcoat shine the factory never could. The result is a coupe that truly looks like precious metal in the sunshine. And this one is car worthy of distinction. You can see its premium presence in everything from the mirror-like chrome bumpers to the black vinyl roof. But more than just a first-class appearance, the coupe also carries all the aggressive touches that make this generation a muscle car icon. The dual stripes, real-deal cowl induction hood, blacked-out grille, hood pins, and proper SS badging on every side – it's a true mean machine. It even carries the correct SS wheel package that ushered in a new era of Super Sport Chevys.
We always love it when the exterior accent color matches the interior – it's another sign of a top-quality car. Plus, there's arguably nothing better in a proper muscle car than a black interior. That's why we're happy to see the seating, door panels, and dash look so deep and dark. Even the headliner was recently replaced. Chevelles were the intermediate size cars in 1971, and by today's standards, there's plenty of room across the two benches to comfortably take family and friends along for the ride. But this SS was built to make sure the driver was always the priority. The dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a commanding view of the whole dash – everything from the large factory tach to the upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. And you know that shifter is calling out to your right hand right now!
Take some real time to appreciate what you see when you pop the hood. We all love to the sight of Chevy's famous 454 V8, and this one was done right. The satin black fender walls really funnel your attention the freshly-painted big block. And this one looks correct, right down to the lip around the air topper for the true cowl induction hood. It's also a desirable LS5 motor – the last of the great Chevelle big blocks. So you really get to impress everyone even before you tell them it's the numbers-matching powerplant. But a muscle car like this as made for much more than just point at the engine. This big block fires up with a terrific growl. And a stout motor needs the best gearbox, so you also have the original Muncie M22 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. Oh yeah, it has the Rock Crusher! Plus, with a thick sway bar up front, boxed trailing arms in the rear, and front disc brakes, this one has the right features to really eat the streets.
Now you know all the details why this original big block Chevelle is a true dream car. But only one person gets to make it a reality. Don't miss you chance, call today!
