Heavy Chevy, nice!

Someone posted a link to this 71 Heavy Chevy on Facebook, and thought I'd share...

https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/5957320476.html

I'd pay the asking price if it is all original as claimed.

Re: Heavy Chevy, nice!

Phil, I think it is all original, even the floor mats look to be. Original owner car. I've emailed him 3 times in the last two weeks, no returns. They look like 15" wheels Heavies had 14" and no trim rings, bright lug nuts. Wish I could get him to respond.

Those are 14 inch wheels. GM never made that style in a 15 inch.

Re: Heavy Chevy, nice!

Without documentation/ build sheet this may be just a very nice base Chevelle dressed up to look like a Heavy Chevy. Says he has the documents. I hope it is a real one. The car does look very nice.

Re: Heavy Chevy, nice!

We who owned Chevelles of the SS variety laughed at the Heavy Chevy when they came out. But they were actually a pretty decent entry level package. I recall Pontiac also had a mid-sized budget performance car called a Tempest GT-37, which could be ordered with a 400 engine.

Re: Heavy Chevy, nice!

The plates and phone number are from Nebraska, but listed in Phoenix? Might be something fishy, or maybe AZ is his winter spot.

Re: Heavy Chevy, nice!

I thought about the base model thing also. wanted to know if he has the build sheet as he doesn't mention that in the ad. This is a Mulsanne Blue car, looks great actually. Wanted to know if the car was on Dales YF3 Registry.

Re: Heavy Chevy, nice!

It is kind of funny how years ago everyone was throwing away their base Chevelle door panels and replacing them wit the Malibu/ SS style. Today many are in search for a nice set of those to use in the Heavy Chevy clones. Wish I would have grabbed more of them years ago when they were plentiful in the salvage yards. I used many sets to get the steel upper rail to mount to new reproduction Malibu/ SS style panels. LOL.

I liked the Gt-37 because my cousin had one but I was never a fan of the Heavy Chevy.Yeah and now,I have always wondered what everyone saw in the HC.I remember back then we would consider the Heavy's a cheap car and pass it over. It was better to wait to find a SuperSport for sale.
I think all the divisions offered a lower priced A-body.Chevy had the heavy Chevy,Pontiac the GT-37,Buick had the GS-350 and Olds had the Cutlass S.All of them were offered with mid level muscle for less than the top of the line musclecars that were available.

Re: Heavy Chevy, nice!

I had a friend back in the day with a '69 Buick GS350. That car was fast enough to perhaps give my '68 L34 Chevelle SS a run for its money. We never did line them up on any of the local back road strips, however.

The guy doing the machine work on my replacement 4-bolt 396 told me today he was helping the widow of a late mutual friend complete the restoration of the 1970 Rally Olds Cutlass he was working on when he contracted cancer and died. Were the 350's in the Rally Oldsmobiles the same engines as those of the vaunted W-31 cars?

No, the generic 310hp 350 4bbl (L74) engine was standard.
