For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Restomod Offering Clean, Tasteful Style10
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.

I would not pay more than $62,000 for this car. I intend no disrespect either. Hope no offense is taken.
Oh, dear. Near the corner store where I picked-up my newspaper bundles to deliver a young lady had a ’70 Chevelle with the 454. I preferred the quad headlight look on that body-style. The young lady was a high-stepper and ran in different circles than fourteen year-old paperboys; that much I remember. That Chevelle was a familiar sight around our little burg in the early-’70s. The car was steel grey or something as that with the Cowl Induction doohickey.
I love the color and I appreciate the modifications. I prefer the old school gauges but the bluetooth is a necessity today. 100K is just too much as it’s not that unique of a chevelle .
The wheels don’t fit the look and they are to tall for that year model, even as a resto-mod. Bright wheels should have bright bumpers. Otherwise, all nice work and that engine bay is to die for but a 1970 with quad headlight is far better looking. In Nov. 72, I bought a ’73 Dodge Charger and the Chevelle was never on my radar, just ugly looking.
“The wheels don’t fit the look and they are to tall” – it makes it look like a ‘lift’ job. It now needs to be lowered 3-4″.
When an 88″ oled 8k tv can cost Aust. $72k,what is $99k US.? for a classic irreplaceable piece of American muscle,restored finely at that.
Over here we just pay fortunes for cars ,because there are just not enough of such thoroughbreds as this ’71 chevelle.
I have an 2018 Bmw M4 competition,with around 500 hp.which I would gladly sell to have a restored chevelle with a Ls worked motor with over 600 hp.
All that work done and the horn doesn’t work, 100 k is a lot , still a nice ride .
LOL, for $100k everything should work. I suppose a serious Buyer would insist the horn be fixed. Maybe the team could be proactive and remove the non-working horn disclaimer as a sticking point for a prospective sale.
My compliments to the Team who rebuilt this Chevrolet. It is perfection. A lot of time and thought went into this restored car that in 1970, 50 years ago, had a MSRP close to $3,600 USD.
