My 1971 Chevelle SS 454 4 Speed
This is a true story about my 1971 Chevelle SS (a REAL SS 454 4 speed),
which I bought in 1984 and sadly sold in 1988 ("my sacrifice") to help
raise cash for a piece of property I was buying. I saved its car cover,SS
key chain, and all the paperwork I had on it because I had hopes of buying
it back in 2 or 3 years when I recovered a little bit from the land
purchase and building my house & garage. It was in an accident 1 year after
I sold it and I thought it was totalled and junked. It ended up sitting,
disassembled, in a barn for many years until it was purchased in 2000 and
restored. I happened upon it when it was sitting outside at the body shop
and was amazed to find that it was still "alive". The new owner decided to
sell it a few years later and so, after 18 years, I bought the car for the
second time in 2006. I still can't believe we're back together again! So
here are photos of the car in 1984, and in 2008, sitting in front of the
garage that is built on the property that I bought back in 1988. It has a
454 bored out to 468 with dart aluminum heads & 12:1 compression. I have
to run it on a 50/50 mix of 112 octane race fuel and super. Quite a bit
than the stock LS5 had! It breathes out through 3" Exhaust and flowmasters.
1970 Chevelle 496 Street Car Pump Gas 11 sec
This is my wife and her 496 Chevelle. Pump gas, flat tappet,dual plane,
3:31 gears, 3500 stall,full Exhaust,
3800 lbs, old ET Streets. She uses it to get groceries and takes it to her
Mary Kay appointments. All three of our kids LOVE riding in the back and
She averages 13 mpg on the highway with the 750 double.
Update 7/07- On 93 octane, the budget 496 made 548HP at 5900 rpm and 574TQ
with big tube (2 1/4") headers at the crank on a Superflow 902 Dyno.
UPDATE 11/08- After three years and 5k street miles, 10 Dyno pulls, and 50+ passes at
the track, Leah has run a best of 11.57 @115.48 on pump gas and M/T Drag
radials, all motor. We tried a Powershot system on it 11/1/08, and with a
1/2 throttle launch went 11.07@120mph.
