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

I have a correct date coded 1972 LS6 454 so you can not tell me they did not make one.

By the way that correct date coded 1972 LS6 454 with a crr prefix is for sale. Complete engine standard bore 4 bolt main with correct rectangular port 72 casting heads. 716 341 2037
