In-game descriptionEdit

"Popular in drag racing; sporting incredible power from a massive engine."


The Chevrolet Chevelle introduced in 1964 was available in an SS-grade sports model, but this version was only for looks.

In the following year of 1965 however, the Chevelle SS was transformed into a full-blown high-performance car, with a 396ci, OHV V8.

From then on the Chevelle SS was only offered with this 396ci unit, drawing a clear line between it and the previous SS.

In 1970, the Chevelle SS went on to be called the most powerful intermediate model on the market.  The engine lineup that was only available in 396ci was upgraded, offering an enlarged 402ci model.  And in addition, a 454ci, enlarged version of the 427ci, was offered as well.

The option codes for the two types of 454ci models offered were the LS5 and LS6.  The former produced 355 HP with a compression of 10.25:1, and the compression of the latter was raised to 11.25:1, and combined with high cams and high flow headers, it produced 449 HP.  This was the most powerful catalog model engine in the history of American cars in its day.

The LS6-equipped Chevelle SS 454 was immediately recognized as a very special model, with its wild power output unlikely for a street car.  Equipped with a straight exhaust and carburetor settings, it is said to have easily exceeded 493 HP, and was the big contender in stock class drag racing.
