Sparks B’s 1971 Chevelle Heavy Chevy

Built From The Ground Up

Sparks B’s 1971 Chevelle Heavy Chevy

This 1971 Chevelle is special to Sparks, as it was his very first car that his dad found him back in 1979! Originally it was purchased for $800 wearing primer with a set of wide mag wheels, totally different than how it looks today. It was originally a Heavy Chevy before coming to Sparks.

Sparks has made lots of memories with this Chevelle over the years. From his high school days to dating his now wife, and the two of them cruising the mountains in the present, they’ve been through a long journey together.

It runs a 327 small block paired to a TH350 transmission, and Sparks has done several restorations over the years, with the last being performed in 2015 to complete the interior and body. He plans to start tackling the underneath of the 1971 Chevelle for the next stage in the future.
