In box 44 it reads 78 78 with a B over what appears to be a K. Down below in the RPO box it reads, "F&SO K0068 1001AA D88 Stripe painted black per F&SO".

Both the B over the K and the D88 notation are on the buildsheet from a typewriter or similar tool and NOT done at the same time the build sheet was printed. The car has a real buildsheet, POP and window sticker and is very real in my opinion. It is a known car and has been discussed a few times over the years. When it was repainted around 1989 white stripes were put on it. This car just came up for sale and that is what prompted me to find the sheet. The owner has owned it since 1998 and was a test car in the January 1989 issue of Muscle Car Review.

I am not able to scan and post it. If you have a fax machine I will send you and you only a copy.

Thanks Rick........you get the Peter Falk Detective award for finding the proof that puts this to rest for those of us (me) who had serious doubts. Thanks for the f/u efforts.

Rare LS6 a Runner-up Repeat in Fort Lauderdale

Auctions America by RM reported more than $17 million in sales on 553 vehicles at its Fort Lauderdale sale in March 2012. The sell-through rate for the event, held at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center, March 15-18, was a solid 72 percent and the top earner was a 1933 Chrysler CL Phaeton that sold for $341,000.

The number two sale was a red and black Chevelle SS LS6/automatic convertible that crossed the block for $198,000. This same car also happened to be the number two top-grossing sale at RM's Classic Muscle and Modern Performance auction, held June 19, 2010, where it brought in $231,000. The Chevelle is believed to be the only red and black LS6 convertible in existence and was sold with the original build sheet, Protect-O-Plate and owner's manual.

The last time I knew, GM has a read/black LS6 convert in their private Heritage Museum in California. It was one of the cars that was used extensively for measurements when we did the R&D for the Lane Collectables LS6 convertible die cast of which I have many photos of taken inside and outside of their storage building. It was also used on the box cover. If I recall, I believe it was also an automatic but am pretty sure it is a different car then the one pictured above

1970 CHEVROLET CHEVELLE SS LS6 CONVERTIBLE

VIN: 136670L101956

4-SPEED MANUAL



Quote:
It starts 43 years ago with two friends and a simple bet. One the owner of a Chevrolet dealership the other a manager at the GM Van Nuys assembly plant. I'll bet you $500 you can't deliver an LS6 Chevelle rag by Halloween the one man says, the other man says I'll take that bet what color would you like. The bet is forgotten until a telegram is received in early October 1969. It reads (Your car was to be shipped today but was sent to a hold area. A mismarked LS5 installed in error. Will have correct LS6 in three days plus day to swap. Should deliver 10/28-10/30. I'll collect my 5 next time I see you.) the car arrived Halloween eve 10-30-69. The bet was paid by a gold standard $500 bill and is included in the sale, as is the original Western Union telegraph from General Motors to the dealer. Included is original Build Sheet. The dealer installed power steering. Steve Greenwood enjoyed the car for nearly two years. Even after the dealership replaced the engine twice he said it was still his favorite car of all. The car would be seen in his dealership for service the following years until it disappeared and was never to be seen again. Fast forward to 1999 when the car was found by Craig Patey in restorable condition in Oklahoma. The car was restored over the next three years to the best available result. The car was driven and enjoyed for the next few years and ownership was transferred. The current owner acquired the car in 2010 and proceeded with a two year re-restoration and has zero miles since. The car is now correct in every way and is a pleasure to drive and will be sought after by those who have the knowledge to know how really rare this Chevrolet is. Not only was this the first LS6 out of Van Nuys and is the first LS6 for public consumption in the nation and is the only LS6 that left the factory without SMOG

First post here.. I saw this car in person at Hershey in the fall for sale in the corral. He wanted $125k for it. It was *perfect* in every way. He had a book of pictures of every numbers stamping for every LS6 part on the car. It sure looked legit. BUT. . I was told by a really reliable source it was a made up car. I can't verify but for that low price it sure seems like its not real. I figure a perfect LS6 vert like that would fetch twice that. It sure was purty though

Well that was also a legendary car of that time because I heard from my father that people are just crazy to see this Chevy when it launched. And this was a best car for many years because of its powerful engine and convertible top.
