Default Very Clean '71 Chevelle Builder

Nice clean slate for a street machine. I've owned a few Oregon cars and they tend to be pretty dry and rust-free.

Looks like it hails from Bend Oregon. I've been through there a few times and it's a high desert area with very little moisture. Great place to find very clean, dry vehicles. If only it was a 70. :-)

There are rust issues with that car, but it is still a better start than most. AND it CAN be a '70, if you want...

Edumacate me Graeme (sorry if I misspelled it).

What are the major differences between a 70 and a 71?

It was at $5k first time I looked at it. At $8600 now.

I would think 10k is about it for a granny car, unless it was completely rust free.

Looks like a pretty good start for a street machine.

Lynn....really ???...
4 headlights versus 2 and round tail lights versus the super sexy rectangle lights on a '70.

Nope. Never said I was smart.
Knowledgeable about first gen Camaros, and a few other odds and ends (let's face it; mostly odd balls). Never followed a Chevelle or El Camino after 69 until the down sized El Caminos after 1978. 70 - 72 just looks too bulky. 73 - 77 I like even less (although I realize they do have a following). I know 70 - 72 are basically the same cars as 68, 69, with lots of parts interchanging; just never got into them.

I've always liked the dual headlights and grill of a 70, and the rear bumper/tail lights are dead on sexy...but have always shied away because they are big heavy sleds and I am a bit of a speed junkie.

As I get older, I find myself now wanting a 70 SS car, but it needs to be a real one Mitch. And it would need to be a solid lifter 4-speed car too! Said I'm getting older, but still, have that need for dumping the clutch and banging gears. An LS6 car would suit me well, but a non-numbers motor would be in order as I would likely torture it.

Understand the need for a clutch, I'm still there myself and always will be. Passed my driver test in a 2 year old '66 Malibu with 3 on the tree. Converted my '67 ss/rs Camaro from pg to 4 speed during the "Day 2, 3, 4" restoration... Now has full tubular front arms and disc brakes.

Also, understand the desire for real ss cars. I don't build clones/tribute cars. Needing a real '70 SS that started life with solid lifters puts you in a very small atmosphere right from the start. If you can tolerate "upgrading" an L34 or LS5 to a solid lifter engine, it will be easier.
