“'71 Chevelle. How do you change America's most popular mid-size car?” – 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle magazine advertisement

The advertising copywriters wasted no time answering their own question: “Very carefully.”

Offered here is a medium-blue-metallic (with white vinyl top and twin, white hood and rear-deck stripes) over two-tone blue 1971 Chevelle hardtop in very well-maintained, respectfully upgraded condition. The car's odometer shows 116,341 miles, a very conservative. fewer than 2,350 miles per-year on average.

The blue-metallic paint is in excellent condition across the entire car, including door jambs, and trunk lid. The white racing stripes are flawless and especially appealing over the functional, cowl-induction hood. (To best assess the quality of the paint and chrome finish, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The car's sheet metal is free of dents, scrapes, or other damage. Panel-alignment is straight with above-period-standard fit. The white vinyl top shows no wear or other damage. All chrome—front bumper (with single-headlight surrounds), and rear bumper (with taillights incorporated), grille (with mall trim missing) hood locks, window and lower-body-side trim, door handles, and wheel-well trim—is in very-good-to-excellent condition, with light patina on some surfaces such as the door handles. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are free of cracks. Badging, with the exception of the “cowl-induction” hood emblem, has been removed (shaved). Chrome dual-exhaust tips add a hint of performance, and the slightly raised rear suspension gives the Chevelle a purposeful stance. Keystone® chrome 5-spoke, 14-inch wheels are mounted with Firestone® Firehawk raised-white-letter tires.

The blue color theme continues in the nearly-all-stock interior. The front-row split-bench seat and the rear bench seat are upholstered in blue vinyl with vertically pleated velour-fabric center panels. Similar materials are used on the door panels (with light puckering noted). Blue carpeting covers the floors (there is some light discoloration in front). Roll-up windows are stock. The blue padded dash is undamaged but shows light sun-fading. The original Chevrolet-script steering wheel with leather-wrapped rim fronts a horizontal speedometer with warning lights arrayed below. The shift lever for the automatic transmission is steering-column-mounted. To the right are slide-lever controls for the heating and ventilation, above a stock-appearing push-button AM radio. An aftermarket oil-pressure gauge is mounted below the dash next to an aftermarket FM radio.

Under the hood, the stock, 350-cubic-inch Chevrolet V8 occupies a clean and well-ordered engine bay. Braided-steel heater hoses, Edelbrock®-branded, finned valve covers, and an Edelbrock®-embossed chrome air-cleaner cover add flair. All hoses and wiring appear correctly routed. Viewed from below, the chassis is straight, complete and undamaged. There is expected light surface rust on untreated metal surfaces. The performance headers and full-length dual-exhaust system, as well as the view of the correctly Chevrolet-orange-painted engine block and oil pan are focal points.

The car's original identification and data tags remain properly mounted.

While the more than 145 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '71 Chevelle in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

When the ad guys penned their “How do you change America's most popular mid-size car” headline, none of them could've ever predicted that one of the then-new Chevelles—with respectful upgrades--would look as lovely and with so few changes fifty years later. The next owner will inherit stewardship over this blast from the Chevrolet past.
