Chevelle Super Sport
Documented Numbers Matching Chevelle SS LS6 454 4 Speed
First things first. One, this is a real LS6 Chevelle SS, two, it is numbers matching, and three, it has just 43,332 original miles. What else do you really need to know?
I suppose we can go into some detail on the restoration. Finished in striking Fathom blue with a black vinyl top and white SS stripes, imagine what it must have been like to drive a car like this home from the dealer in 1970. Imagine you're that original owner, and the feeling of cracking the throttle for the first time on the trip home. The car lunges forward, rear tires barking, the engine spinning towards redline, while it squirms across a lane and a half of pavement leaving two black stripes where none existed before. Yeah, you'd be grinning like a mental patient. Well, here's your chance to relive that moment, and I guarantee it's worth every penny.
The bodywork is simply spectacular on this one. We say that a lot—and it's true every time we say it—but this one seems special. Perhaps it's the paint, which has a soft iridescence to it, or the laser-straight body panels that fit together so precisely you could set a micrometer on the surface. In truth, these are 100% OEM body panels that have never been off the car, so that's the factory fit you're seeing, and great pains were taken during the restoration to preserve its originality. The paint was done a few years ago, but the car was remarkably well maintained ever since, and yes, the finish is far better than it was when it was new. On a car like this, you just can't cut corners.
You also need spotless chrome, and this car has it. The bumpers are beautifully restored and show no grinding marks or casting flash, and the slender bumper guards wear unmarked rubber strips that match the SS insert out back. All the correct badges are in place as well, from the Cowl Induction hood to the SS454 emblems, to the Chevelle script on the tail. Clean glass, buffed stainless, and crystal clear tail lights add up to a car that's just a trailer ride away from a trophy.
The engine is the original LS6, and has been rebuilt and detailed to show standards, including all the original components like the intake, carburetor, and distributor. Not over-restored, but super clean and beautifully done with accurate markings and bright details that are just how it would have looked moments before that fateful first stab at the throttle. Chevy Orange paint on the block really stands out in the Chevelle's satin black engine bay, and I always like that contrast. Chrome valve covers were standard equipment, a the correct cowl induction air cleaner has been fitted using a new gasket. Power brakes are included, but there was no power steering on the high-winding LS6, so make sure you're man enough to handle this one. It should go without saying that things like the hose clamps, wiring, hoses, belts, and other hardware are factory correct, and even the plug wires have correct markings. A recently installed reproduction Delco battery finishes off what is surely an award-winning engine bay.
The transmission is, of course, the original numbers-matching Muncie M22 4-speed manual, and it spins a set of acceleration happy 4.10 gears on a Posi unit in the 12-bolt out back. Like the engine bay, the chassis is very highly detailed with no liberties taken in the pursuit of originality. There's red oxide primer on the floorboards, beautifully outlined by the satin black frame, and all the suspension and brake components have been rebuilt or replaced with correct pieces. OK, so the exhaust system uses Flowmasters, but after you hear how this one sounds (especially compared to the stock setup which makes it sound like the engine has a sinus infection), you won't care. A new gas tank feeds the engine all the high octane it can swallow using fresh lines and hoses. Topping it off are beautiful 14-inch SS wheels wearing reproduction Firestone Wide Oval bias-ply tires.
The interior is black vinyl, which is a more subtle contrast than the more common white or parchment setup. Despite the car's low mileage, the interior was completely replaced during the restoration several years ago, including the seats, door panels, and headliner. Correct round SS gauges fill the dash, including the optional tachometer, and no, this isn't some Monte Carlo dashboard transplant. Consoles were somewhat unusual on LS6 cars, simply because so many went directly to the track, but you'll be happy it's there when you need the storage space, and you just can't argue with how it dresses the place up. Black carpets offer the correct weave, and are protected by a set of black rubber mats. The headliner is taut and wrinkle-free, showing no signs of age or incorrect storage. In the trunk there's a correct mat and a matching wheel with a non-matching radial tire, along with a complete jack assembly.
Documentation for this Chevelle includes the cars original owner's manual, two original General Motors Corporation build sheets and some photos of the restoration.
Real-deal LS6 Chevelles don't come along every day, but when you find one with matching numbers and incredible low mileage that wasn't accumulated a quarter-mile at a time, you know you have something special. These days when pedigrees and numbers matter as much as they do, it pays to buy the nicest, most correct car you can find, and this car certainly qualifies. The fact that it's also beautiful, fast, and fully restored only makes the discovery that much sweeter. So go ahead, imagine you're that guy sometime in 1970, taking his new LS6 home from the dealer. There's no better time machine than this one. Call today!

What Customers Are Saying
Some large branded car dealers could learn a lot from you guys on how to treat a customer and close the deal without the painful game that follows when you are just trying to buy a vehicle. Finally, a special thanks to you for priority you placed on closing this deal in record time. also a thanks out to Greg Smith for taking the lead on getting the truck to my location. he also is very good a making it happen versus just talking about what could happen.
Most of my car friends know about RK Motors and the high level of vehicles you offer at much less than anyone could build the same vehicle. going forward I will promote that the people & process are at the same level as the vehicles that RK Motors offers.
