A private collector from Webster, New York tells us his 1970 Chevelle SS LS6 Convertible “is one of the finest LS6 454/450 hp 4-speed convertibles in existence.” (Click this link to read his description.) He says it underwent an extensive photo documented rotisserie restoration. “The body and paint are show quality. Fit and finish are excellent, including door gaps,” he wrote. He says the interior and gauges are all rebuilt as well as the power black convertible top. It has 200 miles on it since a total rebuild. And, oh, yes, it does have the Rock Crusher M22 4-speed transmission and a 12-bolt rebuilt 3.31 rear end.
We probably only see one or two of these LS6 convertibles come up for sale per year. Often, top quality muscle cars like this one are not available for the public to see or buy. They get passed between big collections where they never see the light of day. Dan Carr, a controversial Chevelle historian and known expert, has reported that he believes only about 26 real cars still exist today. Yet, this 1970 Chevelle SS LS6 Convertible represents one of the hottest deals available in today’s collector car market. Surprisingly, the seller is only asking $110,000. You see Chevelle LS6 hardtops selling for that much at auctions all the time. For an LS6 convertible to be available at that price is amazing. The owner says it is all numbers matching “from the carburetor to the rear end.” (See a list of the numbers taken off this car reported in the ad copy.) According to the Hagerty Insurance Value Tool, an LS6 convertible in No. 2 (show quality) condition would be valued up to $235,000. What do you think this would appraise out for?
Take a look at the photos of the under-carriage in the ad. Very clean. The car also retains all of the air pump (smog) system as well as the TCS control. It has new T3 headlights. The seller says he has 5 new original wheels with radial tires available to go with the car.
