1970, 71 & 72 Wagons are very similar, as you can see in the picture I took at the Spring 2001 Carlisle, PA swap meet. During the years of 70 to 72, Chevelle wagons were only available in 4 door versions. In 1970 the wagon along with it's cousin Chevelle, received a body design change. The majority stayed the same as 68 & 69 with exception the the tail lights, head lights, grill and dash board being some of the biggest differences. Among many other things this changed the radiator support, fenders, hood and the doors received safety steel bar inside.
In 71 the Nomad model was the only model offering a 6 cylinder.
Nomad - model 131361 - 6 cylinder - 2,801 produced.

Buddy Luman's modified 71
This is Buddy's 71 Greenbrier that he is in the process of finishing. It was shortened 22 inches to become a very unique 2 door version. He wants to put Nomad emblems on it but is understandably having a hard time locating the emblems. The frame is now done and he is building a 396 for it. Buddy is planning on putting all the SS stuff, AC and all the power options. It has a 373 12 bolt posi and disc brakes up front. Also soon to receive bucket seats, console and Muncie 4 speed. Buddy currently owns 17 Chevelles and is hoping to use this wagon as advertisement for his Chevelle part internet business, Luman's Classic Chevelles. Located Cooper TX, Buddy can be reached by e-mail, click here. (verified 2/26/04)
71 Custom 2 door Flower delivery wagon
Contrary to what some people believe, Gm did not make a 2 door Chevelle wagon in 71. It is a nicely done version of what GM might have done. Sorry for the poor quality photo, this is an actual car, not a computer generated image.
Niels 71 in Holland
Hi Chevelles.com Team, I bought my Chevelle station / wagon 3 years ago I have crashed it and rebuild it.
While rebuilding it I had only one song on my mind: Elvis - Don't cry daddy
Now she is driving again I can't stop playing: Elvis - Stuck on You
Chevelle is like a woman to me, Cost a lot of euro's but don't want to leave
My daughter of 8 loves the car as much as I do.
Best regards Niels 1975
