Arrow 1970 Chevelle SS 454 450HP LS6 Convertible

One of the most sought after muscle cars due to it's highest horsepower rating and the very low production number of convertibles made with the LS6.

There are claims of 16 made, 18 made, 20 made and more. No one really knows because Chevrolet never kept any records. There is no "Marti Report" that you can order up like you can for a Mustang or a or a Galen Govier report for a Mopar.

The only published number by Chevrolet is that they built 4,475 LS6 Chevelles. That number includes both the Convertible and the El Camino.

I have gathered a lot of info on the LS6 convertible and will add more as data comes to light. I will also add the VIN number of the car as it was published (if available) and a link to the car. That way, people can research the car if they choose.

I make no claims the car in question is a real LS6 conv. I really try hard to avoid the recreations, clones, tributes etc.

454/450hp LS6, 4-speed, buckets, no console, radio delete, Magnum wheels, trim rings, P/B, F70-14 Polyglas tires, stripe and cowl induction delete. Documented by its original build sheet. Meticulously restored to better than showroom condition with great paint, flat panels, even gaps and flush fits. Baltimore never built one this good, or even close.

The VIN seems to be off on the BJ listing. Where a letter should be seen, there is an 8. The letter represents the plant the car was built at. B = Baltimore K = Kansas City, etc.

It doesn't look it from the picture the car is Cranberry Red and not orange:

Jimmy B's Misty Turquoise LS6 convertible

4 Speed



Quote:
This car was still owned by the original owner when it was found about 5 years ago. The owner still had all the paperwork with the car including the POP. The new owner hired us to restore the car after calling me to fly to Canada to authenticate the car. A build sheet was found during the restoration proving even more about the heritage of this car. It is 1 of only 3 known LS6 convertibles in the extremely rare color of Misty Turquoise. It needed a very extensive restoration to bring it back to its original glory.

What we have here is a real deal LS6 Chevelle Convertible. This car has been out of circulation since the late 1970's. It is believed to be the ONLY LS6 Convertible with a stunningly beautiful factory color combination of: Green Mist (45) paint, White stripes, White interior, and convertible top.
