Vehicle Description

America has witnessed significant events that have elevated certain cars to pop-culture iconic status. Often it’s a movie or TV show such as Fast & Furious, Smokey and the Bandit, Starsky and Hutch, Bullit, Vanishing Point, or The Love Bug. In recent years, the car culture itself has produced such events with major auctions. At one such auction, a Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 Convertible sold for more than 1.1 Million dollars. An SS454 convertible was already a very desirable muscle car, but after this type of news hits, the awareness and collectibility of the car gets a shot of adrenaline. This 1971 Chevelle SS Convertible has that great body shape and of course the big block 454. It also rocks the SS stripes. But it stands on its own merit just by virtue of its long list of very impressive quality features. It’s been updated and upgraded to go toe to toe with any car, SS454 or otherwise. The engine features aluminum GM Performance heads, and inhales through a cowl induction hood, to a big 750 Holley and Edelbrock intake. The motor’s healthy appetite is fed with an electric fuel pump, and Hooker Headers rapidly scavenge the gases from the cylinders to make room for more fuel. A powerful big block makes heat, so a big aluminum radiator and twin electric fans do the job up front. The result is instant response and a beefy get-out-of-my-way sound. The four-speed automatic transmission is ably controlled by a B&M racing style shifter. It’s a ratchet unit with reverse lockout, but it also looks killer in the center console. The interior is simply top-notch. The two-tone taupe and tan leather upholstery would look right at home in a high-end exotic, but the primary benefit is that it’s supremely comfortable. It’s the kind of thing that just feels right instantly when you get in. It pampers you with air conditioning, tilt wheel, power windows, power locks, and a sound system with components from JL Audio, Focal, and Pioneer and almost as much power as the 454. Dakota Digital analog gauges look fantastic and are very accurate. But the driving pleasure is more than luxury. Sure, there’s plenty of power, but the chassis is reinforced to keep things under control. It sports a Hotchkis rear suspension and Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes – and traction control! All this and it’s a convertible too! The top is a beautifully crafted cloth piece with a glass rear window. And there’s a matching parade boot as well. Well, another standard phrase in the car culture is “too much to list.” We’ve tried, but you really have to see this awesome automobile for yourself to take it all in. Or give us a call to find out more!

We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer. Due to the age and uniqueness of these special vehicles, it is difficult to cover all aspects and characteristics of each vehicle's condition within the limited space available. Thus, pre-purchase inspections are helpful to all parties involved. The information provided for this vehicle is presented to the best of our knowledge, and is deemed reliable.
