And the hits just never stop. Cloaked in decades of patina, this ’70 Chevelle SS454 appears to be the real thing and not some clone. But is it a 450hp LS6 (4,475 built) or a 360hp LS5 (4,298 built)? Without opening the hood or digging in and locating a buildsheet, there is no way to know. Regardless, this four-speed-stick-equipped example is faded yet solid. Again, we see American Racing S200 Daisy wheels and padlocked hoodpins. The slumbering ZL2 cowl-induction hood is stuck in the open position, as is common when accumulated vacuum isn’t available (in the reservoir) to counteract the activation spring. Let’s hope it hasn’t admitted too much rain over the years. Water can rot the air cleaner base plate and launch a moisture attack on the cylinder walls.
