1971 Chevelle Driveshaft Stripe Colors

[ 1968 ] | [ 1969 ] | [ 1970 ] | [ 1971 ] | [ 1972 ]

All broadcast codes are taken from valid build sheets. Since all plants did not use the same broadcast codes, the plants are listed separately. The Arlington plant data is very limited and Flint is non-existent due to lack of build sheets so only Baltimore, Kansas City, and Van Nuys are listed.

The transmission type is listed across the top and engines listed down the side. Broadcast codes for driveshaft colors is where the two meet. Malibu sport coupe or convertible unless otherwise noted.
