The Chevrolet Chevelle SS represented Chevrolet's entry into the hot midsize muscle car battle. The Chevelle SS was the high performance version of Chevrolet's Chevelle, and had its own line of engines and performance equipment. At first caught napping with just a 327 V8, the Chevelle SS would soon sport powerful 396 V8s and eventually the most powerful rated engine in muscle car history, the LS6 454 in 1970. The Chevelle, along with the Pontiac GTO, remains one of the most popular cars from this era and with good reason. Its strong performance at a reasonable price made it popular on the street and at the track.

1970 saw the introduction of the most powerful Chevelle SS of all time. Responding to the lifting of GM's ban on engines larger than 400 cid in midsize cars, Chevrolet responded by dropping in a new 454 cubic engine into its Chevelle SS. The entry level 454 was known as the LS5 and packed 360bhp. The top engine choice was the LS6 version with 450bhp. The LS6 had a 800-cfm Holley four barrel on an aluminum manifold, 11.25:1 compression, solid lifters, four-bolt mains, forged steel crank and connecting rods, forged aluminum pistons, and deep-groove accessory pullies. No production engine ever had a higher factory horsepower rating. The standard Chevelle SS 396 continued with its 402 cid engines, although the 325bhp was dropped and the 350bhp version was now standard. Optional on both the 396 and 454 was a new cowl-induction hood, which had a rear facing flapper near the base of the windshield to feed air into the engine. The styling was new with a "vee" front end, functional hood pins, and five-spoke Rallye wheels. This was truly the pinnacle of the Chevelle SS performance.

This is fantastic work

I had one of these -- 396 with the ultra-glide. Great car but it cost a fortune to drive, and this was when gas was about $2 a gallon.

Very nice vector!

Awsome work mate. Do you mind if i use it in the making of a wallpaper? If that's ok with you (and if it's good enough to upload) i will name you as the maker of the car and also put a link to your page in the description. Best regards from sweden:)

Unfortunately I'm trying to stop unwarranted usage of my images so I don't really want others to use it in their pieces, credited or not. Just another way for someone to steal it. Thanks for the kind words though - I do appreciate you liking it enough to ask. :)
Wulfmorgenthaler Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012
Thanks for the rapid reply:) I totally understand and ofcourse i wont use your image. I also think it's important to respect other artists copyrights.
Keep up the good work:)
