1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS LS6 454 cid V-8 engine - 450 HP


Description


454 cid V-8 engine, 450 HP, four-barrel Holley carburetor, M22 four-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with A-arms and coil springs, live rear axle with trailing arms and coil springs, power-assisted front disc and rear drum brakes; wheelbase: 112”
Many were equipped with the Z25 SS-396 package, a much smaller number upgraded to the Z15/LS5 SS-454 option. Very few dared to venture to the full-on high-performance excitement of the Z15/LS6. Built at Chevrolet’s Baltimore plant, this high-powered pickup was shipped to Luby Chevrolet, also in Baltimore. It must have been the star of the showroom in gleaming Cortez Silver with those SS black racing stripes. Today, this restored El Camino not only meets factory standards but excels in fit and finish and invites even the most critical eye to come and inspect the perfect combination of 1970s style, performance, and utility.

All chrome work has a deep, clear reflective finish, with properly date-coded window glass carrying the Libby-Owens-Ford logos. The interior echoes the high degree of authenticity seen throughout this El Camino, fitted with the basic full-width bench seat finished in the correct factory black vinyl, full instrumentation including tachometer, and that most important “Muncie” chrome gear shift lever attached to the heavy-duty M22 “close-ratio” four-speed transmission. Behind the front seat back, you will find the rear storage area is as fresh as the day this car was born with the spare tire stored in its proper location along with the original jack and factory lug wrench. This example is presented just as it left the factory, down to the blank-out plate for a radio, which really is not needed when you have that throaty exhaust of the LS6.

The original SS wheels are riding on a set of “Goodyear Polyglas” tires, just as the factory equipped this high-performance pickup. Releasing the lock-down pins on the “Cowl Induction” hood, you can feast your eyes on the most awesome muscle car era V-8 Chevrolet ever produced, a numbers matching 450 HP version of the big block 454 V-8. Close inspection will reveal that this is a true numbers matching powertrain and no detail was ignored with the same high quality finish seen in the engine bay which reflects the same level of professional craftsmanship as seen throughout the rest of this exceptional El Camino.
