Muscle Car Of The Week Video #44: 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6 454 Convertible

  • Published on Apr 17, 2014
  • If you were to go buy a brand-new 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, what options would you choose? This week, our featured Muscle Car is a super-clean 1970 Chevelle SS 454 with the 450 HP LS6 V8 backed by a Muncie M22 4-speed transmission. Couple that with a power convertible top, and you've got an awesome ride capable of burning through the first 3 gears while wind-blowing your hair at the same time. There are multiple LS6 Chevelles in the Brothers Collection, but this one is perhaps the most sinister.

    Damn I wish I had that car... I owned a 71 396/402 and it was not that fast... 8.5:1 CR killed the 396s power...

    TA Radials are tired, people need to start putting stock tires on these cars like Firestone Wide Ovals. I did on my 70 SS 396 at it looks and sits a thousand percent better and now you can even get those in a Radial.

    No quadrajet carb. Holley carb with a low rise intake designed to fit under a Corvette hood. Changing to a high rise intake was good for about an immediate 15 horspower.

    Do you guys have a '72 GTO 455 H.O with a 4 speed?

  • Michael .Gadoury
    Michael .Gadoury 3 years ago +6

    Carb was a Holley double pump, dual feed, I believe 850 cfm as he said but it was not a quadrajet. I believe the LS 5 454 which was rated at 365 hp had the quadrajet carb.

    • John Sinski
      John Sinski 2 years ago +2

      Sorry, but the original Holley was a vacuum secondary with dual feed 780--800 cfm depending on the magazine article.

    The cool thing about the 1970 Chevell, was the power and the weight. Under 3200lbs. at over 100mph you didn't feel safe hanging out. The Chevell had a full frame and enough weight to have weight transfer. I drove a Cobra, I prefer the Chevell, better motor management, like a day at the office.

      Yes very true, i had a good time and cared for the car, My friend had a 1969 427 Camaro with 4.11 gears in yellow the only car that ever beat me on the street. I believe my Chevelle was a 3.42 gear.

    So the SS package (appearance package) could of been ordered with any engine like the Impala? Or was it just for the ad that it had the six cylinder?

    • Mark G
      Mark G 5 years ago +4

      In 1970 the Chevelle SS could be ordered with a 396 or a 454 big block.The photo was a press release blunder ( no 6 cylinder engine ).
