The build sheet for this rare LS6 convertible was discovered in the process of a comprehensive restoration. The documentation helps decode why this particular LS6 may represent the very zenith of American muscle-car performance development, divulging that the original owner of this Medium Turquoise Metallic muscle car specified stripe and cowl-induction delete with a 4-speed manual to help the 454 deliver its wicked punch. It was as close as any Chevelle LS6 convertible could ever get to being a sleeper, and it was awesome, especially for the unsuspecting passenger who got the thrill ride of a lifetime.
With a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, aluminum dual-plane intake manifold and dual exhaust, the LS6 engine was conservatively rated for 450 HP and 500 lb-ft of torque. The 454 was prepared by the factory with a forged crankshaft and pistons with 4-bolt mains. A high-performance camshaft with solid lifters worked dual-sprung oversized valves in the cast-iron heads. The 6,500 RPM redline required deep-groove accessory pulleys. The engine is backed by a Muncie M22 Rock Crusher 4-speed manual transmission and heavy-duty 12-bolt rear axle for supercar-level factory performance that thrust the LS6-equipped 1970 Chevelle into the 13-second quarter-mile club right off the showroom floor.
