Bill S’s 1971 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Bill S’s 1971 Chevelle

Twenty-eight years ago, Bill was playing flag football with a friend. At the time, his aunt bought a 1971 Chevelle Malibu, kept it in the garage, and hardly drove it. Bill told him if she ever wants to sell it, to call him.

A couple of years later, Bill’s friend called. His aunt had passed away and he was given the car. He was selling it for $800. Bill gave him the $800 and the rest is history.

Over time, Bill has gone through the 1971 Chevelle Malibu, top to bottom. He’s a DIY guy, and does things right, buys USA made products from quality restoration suppliers such as

“The car is a Blue 49-year-old cream puff, with a 307 small block engine and Powerglide transmission. The car runs like new, gets a lot of people looking at it at local car shows. An onlooker said this “beautiful Malibu is eye candy.” This makes me proud to own this Chevy”

Bill plans to add a new aluminum intake and 600 CFM carb to his 1971 Chevelle Malibu in the future.
