Seven Hills Motorcars is
Cincinnati's premier Corvette specialist anda
licensed and registered auto dealer by the State of Ohio.
With many years of focused experience we specialize in 1957 to

buy, sell, or just find out more information about your
Corvette, Cadillac, Camaro, or Trans Am. Founded in 2005,
this is a very focused operation. We do it because we
enjoy it. We are a collectors and enthusiasts; therefore
we look for cars that excite us. I do not purchase at

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this absolutely
stunning 1970 LS6 Chevelle SS 454 Convertible with a "Special High
Performance" LS6 454ci 450hp big block engine. The numbers stamped
on the engine block match the VIN, but this Chevelle is an
incredibly accurate recreation. Only 18 LS6 Convertibles were
produced in 1970 and they sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
This LS6 offers a very rare opportunity to own, drive, and enjoy a
Chevelle convertible that is cosmetically and mechanically
indistinguishable from an original LS6 at a fraction of the price.
This Chevelle has been treated to a complete mechanical and cosmetic
"nut and bolt" frame off rotisserie restoration. There are photos
documenting the restoration and a portion of them are pictured
below. The car was literally taken down to the bare frame and
completely rebuilt from the ground up with a new paint, interior,
engine rebuild, transmission rebuild, suspension rebuild, etc. It
was done to concourse standards with incredible attention to detail
to match the original LS6 down to the proper chalk markings in the
engine bay and underside and sourcing accurate and original
components with correct part numbers and date codes.
In addition to the Z15 SS (Super Sport) package, LS6 454ci
engine, and M40 transmission this Chevelle is absolutely
loaded options such as Strato-Bucket Seats, F41 high
performance suspension, cowl induction hood, power windows,
power steering, power brakes, tilt steering, AM-FM Radio,
and Goodyear Polyglas white letter tires. The car is
finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color
combination of Cranberry Red (75) over Black Vinyl (756).
This is the correct color scheme according to the trim tag,
which is pictured below.
This Chevelle SS was so precisely restored that was thought
to be a true and original LS6 for many years and sold for
over $200,000 recently until it was discovered that it was
not authentic. In addition to the all of the correctly
reproduced numbers and stampings, the car comes with a build
sheet that was carefully recreated to look original and a
Protect-O-Plate, which are both pictured below. The level of
accuracy in this LS6 replica is amazing. Beside all of the
correct parts, bolt heads, hose clamps, and chalk markings
there are numerous other items that are correct for an SS
and LS6. This car has the larger 1.25" front sway bar. This
Chevelle also has the heavy-duty steering shaft with a extra
bolt attaching the coupler at the rag-joint area. All SS
models will have this heavy-duty steering shaft. The
standard Malibu will not have the heavy-duty steering shaft.
A 12-bolt rear differential was standard equipment on all SS
models and is present on this car. The rear sway bar was
part of the RPO F41 suspension package and is also on this
Chevelle. Other items correct on this car for the RPO F41
suspension are boxed lower-rear control arms and additional
frame supports. The boxed control arms will include metal
reinforcement plates welded to the bottom of the control
arms to provide additional strength. The additional frame
supports on this car included with RPO F41 suspension attach
to the center-rear frame support above the rear-axle
assembly and to the front attaching point of the lower-rear
control arms. These items are visible in the photos of the
underside of the car below.
There are dozens and dozens of photos from the restoration
included with the car and some showing the car on the
rotisserie. There are also some more recent receipts
pictured below from some maintenance totaling over $4,300.
This Super Sport Chevelle looks amazing, runs terrifically,
and feels great out on the road. There is no way a similar
Chevelle could be built or restored for anything near our
asking price. Please peruse all of the photos, video,
numbers, and other information below to get a true sense of
how exceptionally nice this LS6 Chevelle really is.
As a side note, this SS 454 Chevelle is not a dealer auction
vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our
Classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone
that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.
We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the
car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We
photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the LS6,
just give us a call.
Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the
correct stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but
all of the dates are also chronologically correct. This means
that all of the parts were made and assembled in the correct
order. For example, all of the dates for the individual engine
components and the engine casting date should obviously precede
the assembly date of the engine because the parts had to be
produced before they could be assembled. All of the parts I
checked follow this rule and are dated correctly.
The first digit, "1," indicates the Chevrolet division of
GM. The "36" is the series, V8 Malibu. The "67" is the body
style, 2 door convertible. The sixth digit, "0," indicates
the last digit of the model year, 1970. The "B" is the plant
where the car was produced, Baltimore, Maryland. The last
five digits are a sequence number so this is the 52,004th
Chevelle made for 1970 at the Baltimore plant.
Body Build Date
The "02" corresponds to the second month of the year and the
"C" is the third week of the month meaning this car has a
body build date of the third week of February, 1970.
"T" means the engine was build in the Tonawanda plant. The
"02" is the second month of year and the "09" is the ninth
day of the month meaning the engine was assembled on
February 9, 1970. .
This means the motor was intended for an LS6 454ci 450hp
application with an automatic transmission, which is correct
for this car.

the engine pad.
Engine Block Casting Number

month, and the "72" is the calendar year so the engine block
was cast on February 23, 1972.

The Holley carburetor has the correct 4492 list number
Carburetor Front Metering Block
The front metering block is correct with a 6328 front
Carburetor Rear Metering Block

Carburetor Date Code
The "H" is August and "1" is the last digit of the calendar
year so the carburetor was made in August of 1971.
Intake Manifold Casting Number
The Winters Aluminum intake manifold has the correct 3963539
casting number for a 1970 LS6.
The distributor has a 1111169 stamping. This is actually the
correct part number for the distributor on a 1968 big block
Distributor Date Code
The "7" is the last digit of the calendar year, the "J"
denotes November, and "11" is the eleventh day of the month
meaning the distributor was made on November 11, 1967.

The left exhaust manifold has a 3909879 casting number,
which is correct for a 1970 Chevelle with an LS6 big block.
Exhaust Manifold RH
The right exhaust manifold has a 3916178 casting number,
which is correct for a 1970 Chevelle with an LS6 big block.
The alternator has a correct 1100834 stamping on the
The "CCF" code indicated a 3.31:1 axle ratio with
positraction. This stamping was hard to read on the axle

The rear differential has a correct 3969278 casting number
for a 1970 LS6 Chevelle with a 12-bolt rear end.

Cranberry Red exterior is in beautiful condition. As one can see
in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and
smooth finish. Both doors open nicely with a great feel and the
car overall exhibits good body panel fit overall. The wheels and
center caps are in excellent condition with a nice finish and no
curb rash. The Goodyear Polyglas tires are the original style
bias ply's and correctly sized F70x14. The chrome looks great
and has a brilliant finish. The car has all correct "T-3"
headlamps. The soft-top is in great shape and the rear window is
correct in glass; it is not a cheap top with a plastic rear
window. The top itself fits well and power top functions
smoothly. There are a few years on this restoration so there
will be some tiny signs of very limited use around the car. As
one can see in the many photos of the underside, this Chevelle
is totally solid. The bottom of the car is exceptionally clean
and correct for a Z15 and LS6 with appropriate markings and
suspension components; the car looks nearly as good underneath
as it is on top.
The Chevelle Convertibles looks just as good in
person as it does in the photos.
The Black interior of the Chevelle
looks utterly splendid. The seats are in like new condition
with virtually no wear. The carpet is also in "like new"
condition with no major stains, rips, or holes. The dash is
in terrific condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.
All of the gauges faces are crisp and the lenses are clear.
The original am-fm radio sounds good and most importantly
the dash has not been cut or modified for an aftermarket
installation. The door panels look excellent with no cracks
or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact.
This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of
cigarettes what so ever.
The trunk is very clean,
nicely detailed, and complete with the matching spare
tire and rim (which has never been used), jack, jack
handle, and jack base.
looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.
SS Chevelle seems to be in great mechanical condition. The LS6
454ci starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well.
The car drives terrifically. In the video below one can observe
the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, braking
to stoplight, and going through some curves. Please note that
there are no strange noises or vibrations and the car performs
quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or
driving the car. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to
one side or the other. The transmission shifts smoothly
throughout the power band. This Chevelle has a ton of power and
is very fast with the the LS6 454ci engine. Also, the engine
compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one
can see in the photos.
horn works as do all the exterior lights, interior
lights, all power windows, power top, wipers, and even
the glove box light. The cowl induction hood works
properly and one can see it functioning in the video.
The blower for the heater works on all speeds.
All of the gauges work including the clock, which keeps
Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is
to drive this Chevelle, especially with the extra power
fro the LS6 and the top down on a beautiful day.
The car runs and drives as well as it looks.
1970 LS6 Chevelle SS 454ci Big Block is in marvelous condition.
This is truly an investment grade classic. As stated above,
there is absolutely no way someone could restore a Chevelle to
anywhere near this level for any amount near our asking price.
The frame off restoration, the great attention to detail, and
the beautiful color combination make this car especially
important and difficult to duplicate. This Chevelle always gets
a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent
that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous
owners. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years
and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal
