If you grew up around cars, “LS6” was probably one of those terms that, along with “Hemi” and “Super Cobra Jet”, meant something very special way before you could properly define it. Thankfully, the significance of those names only grows with education, making classics like this incredible Chevelle Super Sport all the more desirable. Documented by an original window sticker, an original Protect-O-Plate and two original build sheets, this numbers-matching A-body is the beneficiary of an extensive, professional restoration that enabled better-than-factory glory. And, featuring all-important options such as posi-trac, an F41 suspension and desirable Cranberry Red paint, it virtually spells “investment grade”. If you're ready to add one of the most sought after muscle cars in the world to your collection, this awesome SS LS6 will pay you back time and time again!

In Chevelle land, it's hard to find a no-excuses Super Sport simply because, for most years, GM didn't code the SS option into the car's VIN or cowl tag. That means this vivid coupe is all the more significant since the car's accompanying documentation both authenticates its status as a real-deal LS6 and confirms the accuracy of its restoration. Here's a look at how this Chevy rolled into Pat Manning Chevrolet in Marshalltown, Iowa:

The coolest dash of red to hail from Kansas since Dorothy's ruby slippers, this stunning Super Sport is the beneficiary of a body-off, professional restoration that was conducted by Jen Jac's Classic Auto in Savannah, Georgia. That 2006 rebuild coordinated hours of professional metalwork, which resulted in a super straight profile. That clean presentation was layered in correct Cranberry Red base, accented with correct Classic White stripes and sealed in glossy clear. And today, mere break-in miles after its roof-to-rocker makeover, this top dog coupe rolls as one spectacular piece of iconic American muscle that's detailed to award-winning standards.

Many enthusiasts believe the '70 Chevelle introduced a host of excellent refinements that transformed the 'good' design of Chevrolet's 1969 model into something 'great'. At the front of this vivid classic, a familiar crossbar grille hangs a prominent “SS” emblem between authentic T3s, a small “CHEVELLE” script and a broad chrome bumper. At the sides of that bumper, bright “SS454” badges combine with straight wheel frames, traditional door handles and optional edge guards to add visual detail to the car's liquid-smooth profile. Above that profile, a functional cowl induction hood anchors traditional lanyards in front of clean greenhouse glass, a small chrome mirror and a correct vinyl roof. And behind that roof, a second chrome bumper centers a black Super Sport inlay between clear tail lamps, a classy “Chevelle by Chevrolet” script and spotless stainless exhaust tips.

Although the 1970 Super Sport's ferocious Turbo Fire V8 was conservatively rated at 450 horsepower, it actually punched the dyno somewhere north of 500. And, according to its familiar 3963512 casting number, correct “CRR” suffix stamp and matching partial VIN, this classic's original LS6 still resides in its rightful home. Engage the hood's Cast Gray springs and you'll find a correct cowl induction system that's cleanly integrated into a completely finished, Satin Black frame. At the center of that frame, a correctly decaled single-snorkel air cleaner forces oxygen in to a big Holley carburetor and correct Winters intake. At the back of that intake, a traditional points distributor snakes sparks around mirrored valve covers via high quality Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, correct exhaust manifolds and old school emissions hardware add value and exclusivity. And in front of that hardware, fresh GM hoses channel water with the help of a correct radiator and reproduction tower clamps. Naturally, the Chevy Orange big block was completely overhauled during the car's extensive restoration. And everything around the monster mill, from the fresh Delco battery topper all the way to the bright inspection marks, looks much nicer than anything that left GM's factories.

As you might expect, this coupe's road-ready chassis has been restored to the same high standards as the aforementioned body panels and engine compartment. A nice coat of Satin Black paint provides a great foundation for a slew of factory-accurate details. Behind the stout powerplant, an original, “CY” coded Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed sends power to a correct posi-traction rear end and friendly, 3.31 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a completely restored F41 Special Performance Suspension that's equipped with thicker coils, heavy duty shocks, mandatory sway bars, boxed rear control arms and beefy cross braces. At the edges of that suspension, correct power steering combines with power front disc and rear drum brakes to provide greatly improved handling. Between those brakes, fried dinosaurs travel through a fresh, true-dual exhaust system that's complete with Walker Quiet-Flow 3 mufflers. The 454's power spins through 14-inch Super Sport wheels, which twist old school F70-14 Firestone Wide Ovals around correct SS center caps. And, as expected, the bottom of this Chevelle is pristine in every way, with every square inch of the car's fully sorted hardware completely detailed for show.

Featuring a host of new components, and decked in correct Red vinyl, this Chevelle's professionally restored interior is inviting and comfortable. Its slick bench and bucket seats are firm to the touch, showing no signs of detrimental wear and tear. In front of those seats, a crack-free dash features a full set of deluxe gauges. Below that dash, clean carpet centers a full console and correct horseshoe shifter between bright Fisher sills and heavy duty floor mats. At the sides of that carpet, pick-free door panels align spotless stainless trim and prerequisite “MALIBU” emblems on bright chrome handles and pliable red armrests. In front of the driver, a handsome Chevrolet Rally Wheel keeps everything pointed straight. And behind the passengers, a fully restored trunk anchors a correct jack and full-size spare beneath a dressed and decaled decklid.

The sale of this all-American Chevy includes:

* Two original build sheets
* An original pre-delivery checklist
* An original window sticker
* An original owner's manual
* An original Protect-O-Plate
* A copy of the car's 1970 title
* A Certificate of Registration from the LS6 Registry

Overall, this numbers-matching coupe is the total package. Sporting a king-of-the-mountain LS6, tough Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed and every option that allowed these cars to develop such stellar reputations, this was a bragging rights car in its day and perhaps even more so now. If you're ready for some fresh firepower in your automotive arsenal, don't miss the chance to take home this awesome Chevelle Super Sport!
