thank you for your help but the car is already restored and the only thing the car need is the right hand side indicators which are going to come shorty from califorinia

and chevelles NEVER came in 4 door they were coupe like this one or a convertable

Default Re: 1971 chevy chevelle

Saw a Gujarat registered 4 door yellow color Chevrolet Chevelle near Seepz today. It had twin black racing stripes running the entire length of the car. I guess the car was parked there cos it had a flat front Tyre.
Will post pictures soon. The car also had a Malibu badge on the right fender. Did a quick Google search and found that the Chevelle did come in a 4 door version.
