When it comes to vehicle upgrades and modifications, more isn’t necessarily better. In fact, there’s something to be said about a vehicle that mates new and old with precision, rather than cramming in as many parts as possible, as is the case with this 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle restomod.
The recipient of a professional frame-off restoration, this Chevrolet Chevelle presents in lovely dark blue paint, with painted bumpers tying it all together. Some of these photos make it appear as though the car is two-tone, but we believe that is actually just a trick of the light.
This ’71 rides on new Ridler wheels with a multi-spoke design and silver finish, while the rear end was fitted with simple rounded taillamps with LED lighting elements. A dual exhaust expels spent gasses.
The cabin space of this Chevrolet Chevelle is also tastefully done, and sports classy black upholstery. Vintage Air heating and A/C keeps it comfy, while a Retrosound Hermosa radio with Bluetooth support provides the soundtrack. Dakota Digital VHX gauges occupy the cluster behind the three-spoke steering wheel, while power windows and power locks keep it modern.
Under the hood, we find a modern powerplant as well. The listing details this lump as the “L86 6.2L V8 (LT).” To our eyes, it looks like the LT1. Upgrades here include stainless steel mid-length headers, a cold-air intake, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans.
This Chevrolet Chevelle also runs 8L90E eight-speed automatic transmission, with a horseshoe-style shifter mounted in the center console.
Under the skin, we find tubular upper and lower control arms, new subframe connectors, front and rear sway bars, and QA1 shocks. There’s also power steering and power brakes, with drilled and slotted rotors front the back to throw the anchor.
Now, this Chevrolet Chevelle is listed for sale by Classic Car Liquidators with just 10 miles on the clock. Apparently, everything is functional except for the horn. Pricing is set at $99,999.
