Numbers matching 454 cubic inch LS4 engine(275 NET BHP with 395 NET Foot Pounds of Torque) mated to the M21 Muncie 4 speed manual transmission.
Net horsepower and torque ratings started being quoted by manufacturers in 1972. Prior to 1972 they were quoted as Gross Horsepower and were much higher ratings because no ancillary items such as air-conditioning, alternator, power steering and anti-pollution pumps, ect were hooked up to the engines and for insurance industry purposes as well, to help keep skyrocketing insurance rates down.
In original and mint condition.
