Description for Chevrolet Chevelle 1971

This is a beautiful California restomod 1971 Chevelle. Original CA blue licence plates still on the car. Owned this car since 2009, but like most cars we own, I've lost interest and ready to start another project. From the best of my knowledge the car has been in the central valley area of California for it's entire life. Car was built in Van Nuys California (back when California made cars). It's a real gem being that California cars are becoming harder and harder to find and many people just wont sell them.Vehicle went through a frame on restoration in 2010-2014 which includes the majority of the work/parts listed below. Car also received a nice custom color paint job which makes it unique compared to your average Chevelle. Car had minimal rust during frame on restoration and any surface rust found was wire wheeled, cleaned and painted with rust neutralizer. Car is a nice head turner driver car and not a trailer queen. I enjoyed many car shows and had lots of fun driving her. By no means is this car flawless, but it has been garage kept and treated as she should since I owned her. This is not your typical Ebay flip car, I'll be lucky to break even due to the lengthy list of name brand parts that were installed.Stack of receipts totaling tens of thousands of dollars will be given to the successful buyer.
