The bold color, driver-ready interior, and solid small block power all come together on this 1971 Chevrolet Camaro
We really like the purple on this Camaro. This wasn’t the kind of color you could get from the factory, but the darker tones fit in with what was offered in ’71. So you have a custom look that still fits in with the lineup. It’s a later application with a nice hint of metallic. So you have the ideal kind of driver’s car that’s easy to drive on a sunny Sunday, and it really pops in the sunlight. This one loves to take on all the best Camaro personalities. You have Chevy-level upgrades with the SS-style grille and painted, Z/28-style racing stripes. Plus, the tall cowl hood and polished alloys with a big rear tire stance are a pure classic street machine attitude. And the three-piece rear spoiler practically defines this whole generation of speedy Camaros.
The interior gives you more of that driver’s car kind of feeling. So the seats are upgraded to give you a unique two-tone upholstery, and the front ones are updated high-back buckets with nice bolstering. You will find some details to upgrade for those looking for a show car, but you can also see the investment and focus here is on the driving experience. You have an upgraded sports steering wheel, B&M floor shifter, auxiliary readouts, and large speedo and tach. So while the AM/FM/CD stereo gives you better driving music, the layout lets you know that your real favorite soundtrack begins under the hood.
The engine bay’s tidy purple inner walls have a thoughtful style that will make you want to lift the hood at car shows. Even the alternator shroud and block were painted to match at one point. And you’ll love that this is a well-done small block. The 350 cubic-inch V8 was built with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer intake, and Dynomax headers feeding into the dual exhaust. Plus, this makes for an all-around great package with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and wide BF Goodrich rear rubber.
