LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6
Chevrolet first introduced the intermediate-size Chevelle in 1964, and it became an immediate sales success. The popular car was just what America wanted, as Chevrolet sold over 440,000 of them in 1970. Ads told us that the Chevelle’s “performance starts as soon as you’re seated.”The Chevelle in SS 454 guise was known as the corporate A-body at General Motors. It was the bow-tie brand’s muscle car variant, and with the LS6 Turbo-Jet 454 V-8 option that is featured on this car, they weren’t kidding! The big block motor produced an advertised 450 brake horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 500 foot-pounds of torque at 3,600 rpm, which were the highest performance numbers of the muscle car era. Keep in mind this was a factory option that anybody could walk in and order from your friendly Chevrolet dealer for just an extra $263.30 on the window sticker. Some 4,475 buyers made that choice and were rewarded with higher insurance premiums to go along with the high performance. In fact, the car was rumored to produce 500 brake horsepower, but the factory claimed 450 in the interest of lower insurance.
This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS was sold new at the legendary “High Performance” Berger Chevrolet dealership in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It is powered by a numbers matching LS6 454/450hp engine and M22 4 speed transmission. This LS6 Chevelle was factory ordered in Classic White complemented with Black Stripes and a Black vinyl interior. The options listed on the build sheet make it quite special, some of which include: LS6 engine, M22 4 speed transmission, G80 Posi rear axle, 4.10 Ratio Gears, Power Disc Brakes, Cowl Induction Hood, Am Radio, Tinted Glass and of course the F41 suspension to keep the LS6 in line. This very rare Chevelle has benefited from a frame off restoration. Its factory ordered Classic White paint has been wet sanded and polished to a high luster finish. The undercarriage and engine bay have been well detailed with chalk markings, stickers and tags.
