Petaluma Street Sighting - 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle wagon
By 1971 the Chevelle wagon was beginning to show its age. The same body shell dated to 1968 with few changes except an updated front clip and some revisions to the lights and interior, namely a new dash and a dual-action tailgate that could hinge down over the bumper or swing out to the left side. The '71 Chevelle lost the 1970's handsome four-light front in favor of two larger round lamps with amber and white turn signals installed in the squared-off corners.
For the most part this is a relatively clean, apparently low-spec wagon in good condition. Like the last wagon I featured, this one has no identifying badges as to which trim level it is. The paint color is not a stock color for that model year, but it looks all right to me for a typical family car of this era.
