135817 / 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport

Wrapping an original 454/3-speed drivetrain in a detailed, body-off restoration that culminates in sultry triple black aesthetics, this clean Chevy puts the class in classic! According to research conducted by a well-known Chevrolet expert, this highly optioned Super Sport was shipped from GM’s storied Arlington assembly plant to Smith Chevrolet of Fort Smith, Arkansas where it began a 45-year journey to our RK Motors Charlotte showroom. At the time of its restoration, the car was a rare, super clean survivor that, while nice, needed some pretty serious work. So, its all-original profile was sent to Kessler’s Body Shop in Sabrina, Ohio for a no-holds barred rotisserie rebuild. That rebuild began with a full strip of the car’s tired, original pigment. Once that paint was gone, massaged sheetmetal stretched correct Tuxedo Black 2-stage under bright Rally Stripes. And today, this Chevy rolls as a stunning muscle car that, no matter how many times you look at it, seems to never lose its appeal. Under the hood, an original LS5 big block wears a correct 3963512 casting number behind a correct “CPD” suffix stamp and matching 173792 partial VIN. Behind that stout big block, an original Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed hangs a date-correct “CF” assembly tag and matching 173792 partial VIN in front of a correct GM 12-bolt that’s finished with friendly, 3.31 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a heavy-duty F41 Sport Suspension, complete with factory power steering. The car’s rebuilt power front disc and rear drum brake system is present, accounted for and functions exceptionally well. And power meets the pavement through stylish Super Sport wheels, which twist F60-15 Firestone Wide Oval 60s. With timeless looks and one of the most desirable powertrains GM has ever produced, this Chevelle is the kind of cool classic that’ll take your weekends to a whole new level.
