In The Streets: 1971 Chevy Chevelle Convertible Custom
Late last year, I gave you guys an inside sneak peek into the Chicago custom car scene with the introduction of Just Cuz Motorsports. Today, I’m giving you a look at one of their latest projects: a custom-built 1971 Chevy Chevelle convertible. There are many custom Chevelles that roam the streets of America, but I’m sure that none would compare to this particular example.
For starters, this Chevelle has been hand restored, and given a new powerplant, which is a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 engine(for those who don’t know, this means that this engine originally began life as a 350 ci V8, but has larger internal components to bring the cubic inch total to 383). On top of a very powerful motor, this beautiful Chevelle sits on a pair of staggered 24-inch Forgiatto wheels, with 8 inches wide in the front & 10.5 inches wide in the rear. The interior receives the matching green & black color scheme with a custom billet steering wheel. And, by the time you read this, the car will add a power boost via nitrous oxide that will add an additional 250 horsepower at the flip of a switch.
All in all, this ’71 Chevelle is a car you can have fun cruising down the street, show it off at the DUB Show, & whoop some ass on the drag strip if you choose to do so. We will keep a close eye on the guys from Just Cuz Motorsports, as they are constantly creating masterpieces that are not only showstoppers, but are also the fastest machines on the streets…
