1970 Chevy Chevelle SS LS6 convertible - $115k

The Chevy Chevelle debuted for the 1964 model year. Chevelle is said to mean 'beautiful and bold.' Aimed at the Ford Fairlane, the Chevelle was built on GM’s new mid-size A-body platform. It became one of Chevrolet’s best sellers. As it evolved throughout the 1960s, the V8 powered two-door coupe and convertible Chevelles emerged as heavy hitters in the muscle car wars. With the same displacement as the LS5, the LS6 was rated at 450 hp and 510 pound-feet of torque. 500 hp was a more accurate figure.
The LS6 had an iron block, aluminum alloy heads, 11.25 compression, solid lifters, a radical cam, and a Holley 800 CFM carburetor sitting atop a Winters aluminum intake. The LS6 could be paired with either a three-speed Hydramatic automatic or four-speed Muncie manual transmission. This 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS LS6 convertible has had a frame-off restoration and is finished in Fathom Blue over parchment vinyl with SS stripes and white vinyl convertible top. 4,475 Chevelle LS6 coupes, convertibles and El Caminos were built in 1970. Few LS6 convertibles are known.
