Lot #1092 - The ultimate in Chevrolet muscle, 454/450hp LS6 engine. Finished in Forest Green, featuring a 4-speed manual transmission, bucket seats, floor console, tilt steering wheel, Cowl Induction hood and a black vinyl top. A complete, ground-up restoration to factory-original specifications, performed to national prize-winning standards, this example also includes the original sales invoice and Build Sheet. In 1970, Chevrolet introduced the ultimate powerhouse for its mid-sized lineup. Chevelle enthusiasts were greeted by the LS6 with the fearless 454 V8. The 454 had a factory rating of 450hp. Few other muscle cars could rival the power of this Super Sport optioned model. The LS6 454 included high compression pistons, rectangle port cylinder heads and solid valve lifters, teamed up with dual exhaust and a Cowl Induction hood. While performance was important, so were looks, and 1970 SS optioned Chevelles were available with twin stripes running over the hood and rear deck lid. Magnum 500 steel wheels were used on all SS option models, as well as heavier suspension.
