Description for luxury vehicle 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6 Registration #12 with the National LS6 Registry

Suzanne “We’re
playing with the big boys!”

Allison “Yes,
but girls like to play with boys!”

It's
4 o'clock in the morning and I can't sleep. The clock just chimed 5
times. I have to be at work an hour early today. I want to meet our
technicians
before they start up this car. There are so many worries! What can I
do? How do I sell it? What does it mean? How do I promote it? How do
I do this
car
justice? The thing is... I'm not into muscle cars. Or domestic cars
for that matter. Until
now. Ok,
I'll admit it. I'm a European Snob. But I
learned,
there is something to
be said about
American will-power and American sense

of
humor. American
ingenuity.

When
the owner (25 years) of this above mentioned car asked me if there
was an airport nearby, I thought it meant for him to fly into to see
our 63 Corvette Convertible. But then he said…”You're gonna wanna
put airplane fuel in this car.” What does all this mean? I have
studied, pondered and researched for over 6 weeks. I've called
everybody I can think of on this

1970
Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 LS6 and#12
with the National LS6 Registry!
This is the Holy Grail of muscle cars representing American
Ingenuity.

 My
research has taught me that this is one of the rarest and most sought
after muscle cars ever built. Back in the day when you needed high
octane leaded fuel and didn't matter that it only cost $0.35 a gallon
because at 8 mpg it just sucked it down. This
monster is a coupe and has
no sunroof. But it does have this really cool Cowl Induction flap
that gulps in the air I
learned the word “cavitation” from my live-in sales manager Kurt
Piser. The oil has to be at operating temperature before you can get
an accurate

oil
pressure reading on the optional oil pressure gauge. Here
are the details..

Hot
Rod magazine May 1970 THE EARTH MOVER

The
Chevelle muscle car is epitome of parts- gathering from existing bins
for adapt-ability to something that can and will perform.  The
last in the line of supercar products by Chevrolet may well be this
one: a 454- cubic- inch, 460- horsepower, V8 driven SS Malibu.  It
could be the last because, even though buyers might still be
available after 1971, strict legislation concerning emissions
outputs, coupled with climbing insurance rates, will render this car
or this type of car- worthless.  We savored every moment of this
car, for the memory may have to last a long time. I hope this
experience can be related well enough for all of us to enjoy.

This
particular Malibu is a hard one to trace through normal specification
sheets and pricing literature. In a sense, it doesn't exist.
 Chevrolet doesn't emphasize that an

LS6
 454- cubic- inch V8 option is available in anything other than
a Corvette.

But
Chevelles can have it too, along
with a cowl induction hood.$147.75,4.10:1 rear axle$25.30,SS

Muscle
Car
in
March 1968 apologetically
compared the Chevelle Malibu to an Alfa Romeo in the ride and
handling department. In 1970 race driver Sam Posey laps
the twisty Limerock
course in a 1970
Chevelle
only one second slower than his
289 Cobra, quite a feat considering the Chevelle. almost
a full ton of extra weight, much of it concentrated under the hood
for a marked front weight bias. If things were somewhat tamed in the
handling department horsepower ratings were getting truly barbaric.
The
Tyrannosaurus Rex of muscle cars, violient,
powerful, hungry for fresh meat, and short-lived road test of the era
pulled 0 to 60 miles per hour times of 5.4-6.0 seconds and quarter
mile times around 13.8 seconds. The LS6
454 Chevelle could eat anything on the street, washing it down with
the big drink of gasoline at a hot rod reported average

of
8.4 miles per gallon. Only 3,733 LS5
and LS6
454 equipped Chevelles were sold in
1970. The
LS6 was only made one year- 1970

Muscle
cars April 1989 1970 LS 6 Chevelle

Of
all of the missile cars in the past 25 years this is the one of the
most potent. Powered by an extremely healthy 454 big block, these all
most common looking beast provided a thrilling ride for all who draw
them. Outwardly they resembled most other Chevelle's except for the
Powerball hood and SS 454 markings on the front quarter panels, but
that is where the similarities ended. These 450 hp
bowties really left their mark on the asphalt with quarter mile
results of 13.12 seconds at 107 miles per hour. The LS6
Chevelles were picked by Car Craft as the hottest muscle car in 1987,
due in part to

their
impressive power to weight ratio.

Number
one 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 LS6

This
mean machine had it all with an unprecedented 450 horses, Chevy super

cool
super sport image, GM's roomie, comfortable body platform, and a
cutting-edge chassis that held the road with Detroit's best big block
bullies and featured

reasonably
state-of-the-art standard front disc brakes. An LS6 SS454 could run

as
fast as any factory fast car on the road, and it could also haul the
kids to school, making them the envy of all their classmates.

It’s
here, its back and this is a monster of a machine! You
may
think asking a start of $95,000
is alot
for a car that needs a good paint job and put back to its original
color- Dark Blue. The
original build sheet has
the rear seat spring markings permanently embedded in it. Per Hagerty
Values-
In 2007-this car was selling for $332,000
to $417,000.
Dropped to a low of $49,000 to $99,000 in 2008. Currently steadily rising and selling between $61,000
and $175,000.
Don't be kicking yourself in a few years from
now that
you should have,you could have &
I told you so!

P.S.
I’m no longer a European car snob. As a music major I couldn’t
afford mechanics.  Yes, that’s what they were called back
then. So I ended up working on my clunkers by myself. I loved it. And
I loved getting my hands dirty. I'm frustrated mechanic.  My
roommates would constantly remark about me being under a car doing
brake pads, changing oil ,changing an alternator or rebuilding  a
master and slave cylinder... but that's my Saab story. Maybe it's
because I'm a woman? Cars have always represented a sense of freedom
to me. Giving me the ability to escape, to move, to get to work, to
make my living, to get to school, to get away from whatever. Freedom
to be on the road with the wind in my hair, top down.....
