This 1970 Chevelle is equipped with the most notorious big-block
engine ever installed in a Chevrolet. The 4-bolt main-bearing caps,
a solid-lifter camshaft, larger-diameter exhaust valves and a
Holley 4-barrel carburetor propelled the Chevelle from 0-60mph in
just over 5 seconds and through the quarter-mile in the 13-second
range. The matching-numbers powertrain starts with the legendary
454ci LS6 V8 engine mated to a Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed automatic
transmission and ends on the road through a posi-traction rear axle
with 4.10:1 gears. The white-striped cowl-induction hood, with its
signature chrome hood tie-down pins, is where form meets function
on the triple-Tuxedo Black Chevelle. The Z15 option brought a
black-painted grille with center SS logo, wheel-opening moldings
and a black SS rear bumper insert. An F41 suspension package backs
up the look of performance with heavy-duty coil springs, front and
rear anti-sway bars, box-welded rear lower control arms, power
front disc brakes and power steering. Dual exhaust with special
bright polished tips makes for '70s-correct big-block sound, and
the car rides on 5-spoke SS wheels with Firestone wide oval tires.
The black interior is centered by a pair of Stratobucket seats. In
front of the optional 3-spoke sport steering wheel is the round
gauge pod dashboard with black-faced tachometer, speedometer and
clock. Smaller gauges for fuel, amperage and water temperature are
joined by a push-button AM radio. The center console features a
horseshoe-style shifter for full-power launches from the TH400
automatic transmission. This LS6 Chevelle was sold new at Sale
Chevrolet in Ashland, OH, and displays 42,586 actual miles on its
odometer (the title reads mileage exempt). From the Raser
