The 1970 Chevelle SS454 is one of the most recognizable muscle cars of all time, and many consider the LS6 variation to be the peak of muscle car performance. In reality, the LS6 engine was one of the most powerful engines ever installed in a production car, producing 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque.
The discovery of a rare and highly sought-after 1970 Chevelle SS454 M22 LS6 left car fans across the world in admiration. The “Holy Grail Tuxedo Black 1970 Chevelle SS454 M22 LS6” automobile was discovered hidden away in Dallas, Texas, where it had been stored for nearly 35 years.
The car was bought new in Dallas in 1970 and was routinely used for several years. Yet, as time passed, the owner parked the car and abandoned it for more than three decades. The car had been stored away until the current owner discovered it and determined to restore it to its former splendor.
The restoration procedure was comprehensive, with every element of the car being repaired or replaced to return it to its original state. The LS6 engine has been rebuilt to original specs, and the M22 “Rock Crusher” 4-speed manual gearbox has also been fully restored.
Apart from its unique color and strong engine, the automobile is equipped with several other desirable amenities, such as power steering, power brakes, and a cowl-induction hood.
