Chevrolet produced the mid sized Chevelle from 1964 through 1977. The Chevelle was one of Chevrolet’s most successful nameplates during that period. It also provided the platform for the Monte Carlo model, which was first produced in 1970. The Malibu package was the premier Chevelle model through 1972. The SS option was Chevy’s answer to the muscle car segment, which was beginning to take off in the US market. Initially available in 8 different body configurations, the first generation Chevelles had six different engine and four transmission options to choose from. The 1970 Chevelle saw new sheet metal revisions, which gave the body a more “squared” appearance. Interiors were redesigned as well. Of the eight different body styles available in 1970, only three were available with the SS option; the Malibu 2 door sport coupe, convertible, and El Camino. 1970 also saw the introduction of the 454 cu in engine producing 360 hp in standard form and 450 hp with the LS6 option. The LS6 SS was timed in the low 12 seconds in the quarter mile making it one of the faster production cars produced in 1970. The 454 cu in motor was exclusive to SS models only. Presented is a 1970 Chevelle SS 454 LS6 tribute restoration. The build began on a solid rust free southwestern Malibu sport coupe with no apparent prior accident damage. A rebuilt 454 cu in engine, de-stroked to 427 cu in using a RV cam was installed, as was a period correct TH400 automatic transmission. A more user- friendly rear differential was fitted in order to facilitate highway driving. SS 454 exterior badging, 454 valvle covers, upgraded ignition, working A/C and power brake booster were added. Reproduction SS wheels with oversized rear tires complete the LS6 look. An updated Pioneer sound system was installed with more powerful amp and subwoofer speaker. With original LS6’s bringing over six figures, this tribute edition represents a great opportunity to experience big block muscle at a significantly lower investment.• Completely rust free example • Big Block 454 engine• TH400 automatic transmission• Rare air conditioning • First year for the 454 ss LS6 model
