The LS6 Chevelle was at the pinnacle of GM performance, and stood alone as the only vehicle to take top horse power rating over the Corvette in history. With a factory advertised 450 HP at 5600 RPMs and 500 lb-ft of torque at 3600 RPMs, it was the highest horsepower Chevelle offered from Chevrolet.

 

Known as the 'Pilot Car," this 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 is the earliest known and documented of 4,475 RPO LS6 cars ever produced. A GM executive ordered an LS6 coupe as his zone demonstrator in October and was told by the Baltimore plant manager Earl Prentice that he was to receive the first one built at that plant. Built on December 9th, 1969 it was labeled the 'Pilot car.' This 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle LS6 has "Pilot job" and "if it had wings it would fly" hand written on the build sheet.

 

Its complete documentation includes two build sheets, POP and entire owner history. It is highly optioned and features a complete born in driveline. In 2010 it received a concours level restoration to its correct assembly line condition by; MuscleCar Restoration and Design, one of the top Chevelle specific restoration shops in the United States. Since its restoration this automobile has been driven one mile. Since 2010 it was featured in Muscle Car Review Magazine with an article and as its cover-car in March 2011.
