1970 Chevelle SS 454 Hammers Down on Freeway!

If you know about the mythical SS Chevelle 454 – you know what kind of power and torque they were capable of. Watch this one blow away the “regular” car on this freeway joyride:


Apparently – it got up to speeds near 120 after just a few seconds of heavy pedal. Possible? Definitely.

A stock ’70 Chevelle LS6 454 (the car in the video) could dp the quarter mile in the low 12s at approximately 112mph. That is from a complete stop. So going from a rolling 40 or 50mph to 120+ in the 8 seconds or so of heavy throttle is very believable.

Think this is BS?

Well – would you believe that a Cobra 289 can beat one of these Chevelles in a drag race? Here’s the proof. Sound off in the comments!
