1970 was the only year the LS6 454/450 HP was offered as a production car there was also a LS5 455/360 HP version Gross 1971 had 1 454 version, the LS5 rated 365 HP Gross 1972 again had the same basic LS5 engine but now rated SAE, 270 HP

it was rated at 450 hp but its actually more like 500hp at the wheels
