This 1970 Chevelle is equipped with the most notorious big-block
engine ever installed in a Chevrolet, the 454ci V8 LS6. 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-to-60 mph in just over 5 seconds and through the quarter-mile in
the 13-second range. The matching-numbers powertrain starts with
the LS6 engine mated to a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission and
ends on the road through a posi-traction rear axle. The
white-striped cowl-induction hood, with its signature chrome hood
tie-down pins, is where form meets function on this 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 white 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 radio-delete dash
surface. The center console features a Hurst shifter for full-power
launches from the Muncie M21 transmission.
