THE CHEVROLET CHEVELLE LS6

The year is 1970, and America's motor manufacturers are engaged in a titanic battle of steal, iron, and gasoline. Sitting atop this mighty muscle car heap is one of GM's finest- the Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6.

At a time when the only thing that mattered were displacement and output figures, Chevy's offering had both in spades- 454 cubic inches and 450 SAE rated horsepower. This big block power plant featured the whole complement of power options made available through a simple check mark on the option sheet: four-bolt main bearings, big port, big valve heads, solid lifter cam and a low-rise aluminum intake manifold with a giant Holley four-barrel. In addition, customers of the LS6 received further enhancements including front disc brakes, a specially tuned rear suspension and a suite of appearance additions.

Only in the early 1970s could a car like the Chevelle with its bulging hood, chiseled fenders, and a thunderous V8 burble exist, and it has consequently endured as one of the definitive muscle cars to have ever been produced.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

On offer is a spectacular example of one of America's most legendary pieces of muscle. Produced in the 1st week of February, the vehicle left the factory as a genuine LS6 with GY2 331 axle ratio, G80 positraction, JL2 power front discs, and M22 HD 4-speed transmission. This information is verified by two original build sheets on file and numerous stampings found around the vehicle indicating correct dating. Further endorsement is provided by a Gold Spinner Certificate and a Showcase Certificate issued by the Chevy/Vettefest Nationals. In addition, the car retains its protect-o-plate and warranty booklet.

In 2005, the vehicle was the subject of a comprehensive, frame off restoration documented by a large collection of photographs. Sprayed in the factory correct Autumn Gold paint, the vehicle appears in truly fantastic condition with hardly any signs of degradation and has been dutifully cared for by its current Swedish owner since 2011.

This Chevelle SS 454 LS6 two-door hardtop has now returned to its homeland and is sure be the centerpiece of any muscle car collection fortunate enough to contain it.
