If you grew up around cars, “LS6” was probably one of those terms that, alongside “Hemi” and “Super Cobra Jet”, meant something very special long before you could properly define it. Thankfully, the significance of those names only grows with education, making cars like this numbers-matching Chevelle Super Sport all the more desirable. Serving just two owners during its 44 year career, and scoring 987 out of 1001 points at the National Chevelle Owner's Association Show, this clean A-body is the beneficiary of an extensive, professional restoration that enabled better-than-factory glory. And, backed by a loyal Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed and all-important options such as an F41 suspension and power front disc and rear drum brakes, it's obvious the car's original buyer knew exactly what boxes to check. 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!
Hailing from the general's storied Atlanta manufacturing facility, and featured extensively in Year One parts catalogs, this stunning Super Sport is the beneficiary of a body-off, rotisserie restoration that included new GM quarters and fresh GM fenders. In 1995, the car's current owners coordinated hours of professional metalwork that resulted in a super straight profile. Of course, being lovingly driven and rebuilt to resto-mod status circa 1990, this awesome Chevy was already solid and exceptionally well-kept. That clean presentation was layered in correct Shadow Gray base, accented with Tuxedo Black rally stripes and sealed in glossy clear. And today, only 30 miles after its roof-to-rocker makeover, this top dog coupe sits 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 which transformed the 'good' design of Chevrolet's 1969 model into something 'great'. At the front of this monotone menace, a familiar crossbar grille hangs a prominent “SS” emblem between authentic T3s, a small “CHEVELLE” script and a broad chrome bumper. Above that bumper, a functional cowl induction hood anchors new glass between traditional lanyards, pristine window trim and a clean greenhouse that's factory-coded as Tuxedo Black. At the base of that greenhouse, bright “SS454” badges combine with straight wheel frames, traditional door handles and flashy chrome mirrors to add visual detail to the car's liquid-smooth profile. And at the back of that profile, a second chrome bumper centers a black Super Sport inlay between clear brake lamps, a classy “Chevelle by Chevrolet” script and spotless stainless exhaust tips.
Although the 1970 Super Sport's ferocious Turbo Jet V8 was conservatively rated at 450 horsepower, it actually punched the dyno somewhere north of 500. And, despite being swapped for a thrifty 327 by the car's first owner, this classic's original LS6 remained close to its rightful home. Engage the hood's Shadow 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 into a big Holley carburetor and low-rise Corvette intake. At the back of that intake, a traditional points distributor snakes sparks around a correct 3963512 casting number and November (K) 7th (7), 1969 (9) casting date via high quality Packard TV R Suppression cables. Below those cables, a correct LS6 cam, correct exhaust manifolds and old school emissions hardware add value and exclusivity. And in front of that hardware, GM hoses channel water past a matching partial VIN and correct “CRR” suffix stamp with the help of a replacement radiator and old school tower clamps. During the car's extensive restoration, the big Chevy was completely overhauled by the pros at Sonny Heck's Automotive. And, from its fresh Delco battery and mirrored valve covers all the way to its stainless fluid lines and bright decals, the monster mill looks much nicer than anything that left GM's factories.
Naturally, 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 big block, a CY-coded Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed sends power to a correct posi-traction rear end that's equipped with meaty, 4.10 gears. Holding that killer drivetrain off the ground is a completely restored F41 heavy duty performance suspension that's equipped with thicker coils, heavy duty shocks, a larger diameter front sway bar, a standard rear sway bar, boxed rear control arms and beefy cross braces. At the corners of that suspension, power front disc and rear drum brakes provide greatly improved stops. Between those brakes, fried dinosaurs travel through a fresh, true-dual exhaust system that's complete with factory replacement mufflers. The 454's power flows through 14-inch Super Sport wheels, which spin old school F70-14 Goodyear Polyglas Custom Wide Treads 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 what is arguably the best color offered for the 1970 model year, this Chevelle's correctly 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, restored by Just Dashes in Van Nuys, California, features a full set of gauges. Below that dash, clean carpet centers a full console and correct horseshoe shifter between bright Fisher sills. At the sides of that carpet, pick-free door panels align spotless stainless trim and prerequisite “SS” emblems on bright chrome handles and pliable black 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 an optional rear window defogger.
The sale of this shadowy Chevy includes: an original Owner's Manual, a Certificate of Participation for the Minneapolis Aquatennial and Milestone Car Society Concours d'Elegance, judging sheets from the National Chevelle Owners Association, restoration photos, restoration receipts and maintenance notes.
Overall, this numbers-matching coupe is the total package. With a king-of-the-mountain LS6, correct 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!
