1971 Chevelle - Feeler

No clue if this car was an original SS, it could be.

454 Motor, runs well (not sure about build)
4 Speed Muncie M21, 10 Bolt - rebuilt by d&l transmissions in NY 2 months ago.

Frame off restoration - rotisserie.

painted (good driver quality)

interior - needs finishing.

runs and drives - needs brakes (has front disc rear drum)

SS Dash - Wheels

Tons of new parts - car does not need much - no rust at all - all new panels.

curious on what you guys think this is worth if I was to turn around and sell today - please be honest.

Re: 1971 Chevelle - Feeler

Seems like a nice "driver level " car with a bit of "de-hooptifying" left. Nevertheless, I'm starting at near 30k, at the top of the range, and low boundary may be near 20k. Certainly top boundary + with all the details done. Again, not knowing condition of engine, etc, it may be optimistic.

427 - thank you!

Agree with the "De-hooptifying" - my plan is/was to return it to complete stock - SS badges - new steering column/steering wheel - clean up the interior and finishing touches... car is really clean as it is right now - I'm just not finding the time to get everything done. I'm curious as to the worth as it sits.

Re: 1971 Chevelle - Feeler

It would be more valuable without a steering wheel.

Looks nice otherwise.

Re: 1971 Chevelle - Feeler

Your dash and kick panels do not go well with the color of the seat covers and door panels. That dash housing/carrier needs a good detailing. It has no Silver/ Chrome on it. That steering wheel needs to go. The carpet does not seem to fit well on the drivers side in the front. To get a better price for the car these items should be addressed. The Black exterior paint looks very nice in the pictures. I personally do not like the look of the engine.

Re: 1971 Chevelle - Feeler

The blue and purple cues in the engine bay dont sit well with me either.

Is the heater core missing?

It was an AC car but every thing is missing.
From the pictures Body looks very Nice on the outside, AC needs to go back in and finish under the hood to look more stock, carpet does not fit at all and dash needs to be finished up.
Steering wheel would look better as garage art on the wall, also what kind of shifter is that?
Very Nice color pick on the seat and door panels.
Not trying to pick it apart but a few changes to look more stock and the Chevelle would be a very desirable car to many.

Man that steering wheel looks like it belongs on the Batmobile. What is seller asking for the car?

Re: 1971 Chevelle - Feeler

The engine bay needs detailed. Remove the pulleys and paint the water pump. Paint the valve covers engine color or strip the blue and clear coat them. The paint and seats look nice.

Re: 1971 Chevelle - Feeler

I doubt it will bring more than $20k as it sits, probably closer to $16/18. It needs too many little nickel and dime things to finish. I also doubt its an SS.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

I can't imagine it would be comfortable in your hand when driving. It belongs on a custom ridler type car.
