1970 Chevelle LS6 Convertible 454/450HP

Up for auction in Fathom Blue with White SS Stripes.

When the Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 LS6 was introduced back in 1970, it nipped the title of the most powerful Chevrolet muscle car ever built. Equipped with the LS6 engine rated at 450 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, the big-block engine received a forged-steel crank and connecting rod and aluminum pistons. The Chevelle’s massive engine is mated to a Muncie M22 "Rock Crusher" 4-speed manual transmission, and the car was given a power convertible top.

Painted in factory-spec Fathom Blue with white SS stripes, the Chavelle has an ivory interior and white soft top. It also has white letter Goodyear Polyglas tires and full documentation for its pre-restoration authentication inspection. The Chevelle will be crossing the block at Mecum Auctions this coming May, as part of Dana Mecum’s 27th Original Spring Classic 2014.
