Dealers, appraisers, restorers, and the buying public all acknowledge that the 1970 Chevelle SS has been on top for years and will continue to be into the future. The stand alone one year model run, classic styling, and the most powerful engines of the era endeared this Earth Mover to the public then and now. The high horsepower models such as the LS5 and LS6 were limited production and rare. Only 4,298 LS5 cars were built and 4,475 LS6 cars. What was the rarest of them all? The L78 solid lifter 375 hp model with a mere 2,144. It was also known within the manufacturer and insurance circles that this engine was underrated for insurance purposes. This engine was almost the exact design of the earlier Corvette L78 that was rated at 425 hp. The intake and carb were changed so it would fit under the Chevelle hood. Still, most collectors agree that this engine is closer to 400 hp than 375.
