Jeff B’s 1971 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Jeff B’s 1971 Chevelle

Jeff acquired this 1971 Chevelle in 2009 in Switzerland, completing a full frame off restoration afterwards.

The factory equipped small block 350 was not quite doing it for Jeff, so he chose the resto-mod route and replaced it with a Scott Shafiroff-built 427 small block making 520 horsepower. It is currently paired up to the factory TH350 which will soon be replaced with a TH700R4 transmission.

Modifications include a hydraboost & Wilwood brake setup, a C&R radiator, a complete American Autowire harness, and Hotchkiss arms & stabilizers. It also has a raked stance, sitting 2 inches lower upfront and 1 inch lower in the rear.

“I took care to respect the original appearance outside and inside using original parts, NOS and ordered from SS396.”
