Gateway Classic Cars has a sleeper listing this week that you should note. They just posted a 1970 Chevelle SS LS6 Convertible which shows up in their Orlando inventory. The LS6 wasthe most powerful big block motor produced by Chevrolet during the muscle car era. It was underrated at 450 horsepower for insurance purposes. There were only 19 of these convertible LS6’s ever produced, using Gateway’s statistical source. You would be lucky to see one of these cars per year ever shown at a car show. It came with a forged steel crank in beefy 4-bolt mains, forged steel connecting rods and aluminum pistons, a high lift, high duration solid lifter cam, an 800 CFM Holley 4-barrel on an aluminum dual plane intake manifold and gargantuan intake and exhaust valves in high flow heads. Gateway notes that it comes with options to included a 4-speed Muncie, bucket seats, console, cowl inducted hood, Deluxe steering wheel, gauge package, power steering, power disc brakes, power top with a glass window, tinted glass and tilt steering wheel. For Chevelle fans it doesn’t get any better than this. Click here to view a full walk-around video of this legendary muscle car convertible.

A truly rare big block car. We came across one of these out in California years back. At that time we were told that there were only 17 of these LS6 convertibles built.
