You're looking at the rare opportunity to own a standout classic. There were less than 5,100 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu convertibles produced in 1971, and very few convertibles ever came after this. And this one is a nicely restored example to be a street-eating SS tribute. So you get iconic lines, rarity, and even the right upgrades in this powerful and classic V8 droptop.

When the sunlight hits this convertible, you can instantly tell there was a well executed investment. With barely over 100 miles on it since the full restoration, it's a true stunner. It takes a big investment to get the black this glossy. And more than just the paint, there were new panels expertly fitted so that you get a solid classic that has a better fit than factory oh yeah, this is exactly the kind of classic that has people talking about your car long after you've driven away. The dual white stripes draw attention to the super scoop cowl hood, and they also combine with the SS badges to provide a timeless contrast to the black. A shining classic like this needs all the right brightwork, too. So you'll love everything from the mirror-like chrome bumpers, to the upgraded 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust polished alloys.

While we love the way the black top coordinates with the interior, it gets even better. With just the flip of a switch, the roof lowers to reveal a full black restored interior. These might have been the midsize Chevys back in the day, but there's plenty of room for you to carry all your friends and family with the two rows of bench seats. Plus, everyone can stay entertained thanks to the Retrosound AM/FM stereo that features Memphis speakers and an iPod input (yes, modern music in this very vintage ride!) And it sounds crisp thanks to thoughtful details, like the FatMan sound insulating material in the floor. But a convertible like this is really about the driver. That's why the classic dual spoke steering wheel gives you a clear view to the upgraded Dakota Digital VHX readouts featuring a large speedo and tach.

The moment you see the engine bay, you can tell they built this Chevelle to live up to its Super Sport appearance. The 400 cubic-inch V8 looks fresh, and it has all the right upgrades. This includes a Holley carb, Edelbrock Air gap intake, RHS aluminum heads, solid lifter gear drive cam, large capacity oil pan, Mickey Thompson fined valve covers, Holley electric fuel pump, and an MSD Ignition. The headers add even more power while contributing to the rumble of the MagnaFlow dual exhaust. The three-speed automatic transmission was built with a stall and shift kit, so it's nicely paired to make the most out of this power package. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see more reminders of how fresh this build is. And you'll spot plenty of new components, like the springs, ball joints, tie rod ends, boxed lower control arms. Power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and meaty Cooper Cobra tires complete this well-rounded performance package.

Complete with build receipts and service manuals, this is a rare and iconic convertible that is a looking fresh and mean. It's a terrific total package, so don't miss you chance at it. Call now!
