It appears to have been in South Carolina its whole life.The 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle factory SS 454 is just as formidable as it's counterpart from year earlier, with updated sharper and sleeker styling. This beautiful example sports 454C.I.

Other features on this Chevelle include power front disc brakes, power steering, factory air conditioning, and the desirable U14 gauge package. The exterior was an evolution of the much-loved 1970 design with more squared-off front end with change from quad headlamps with bumper integrated turn signal to single lamp on each side with turn signal and side reflector combination. The rear was changed as well to somewhat Corvette-like quad round taillight design with more chrome and larger SS logo. The exterior on this Super Sport has been re-sprayed some years ago in bold Cranberry Red accented by black D88 sport stripes and the 5-spoke Cragar Chrome Special Sport wheels. The interior in covered in smooth black vinyl and features front bucket seats and center console that houses the legendary ""Horseshoe"" shifter. This Chevelle looks to have been taken care of by its former owners; the bottom is clean and original, the pinch welds are good, and the steering rack front suspension looks to have been recently rebuilt. The rear quarter panel on the passenger side has some rust in it (see pixs).
