Re: 1970 Chevelle LS5 convertible block code

Either this is a joke, or you better hold off selling until you figure out what you have.

CRR is an LS6 TH400 Code. The last 9 digits should match the VIN.

I would think you would know if you had a numbers matching LS6 Vert as you'd be sitting on a 1/4 Million or so.

But if an "authentic" LS6 block was installed, it will increase it's worth.

I'd verify that number again, and if it is truly CRR, then I'd take a very good close up photo and post it for authentification.

An "original suffix" stamped LS6 Block can be worth $10K by itself.

Happy motoring!

I smell a for sale ad in the forums disguised as a question.

Re: 1970 Chevelle LS5 convertible block code

Thanks to those who have posted a helpful response. Just came on this forum to ask a question of people that I thought would have more knowledge than me and were fellow Chevelle lovers. If anyone can help me I would like to know if a CRQ is a correct suffix code for and LS5 automatic. Please don't respond if you don't have a helpful answer. Thanks

Hey Larry, CRQ is correct for an LS5 automatic. On another note, asking a question is one thing, but wrapping it around a for sale ad is another. There is a classified section on TC that's been very usefull for a lot of people. If you have a car to sell, list it with some good pictures and I'm sure you'll get some action on it.

No offence implied, but both do not seem easily confused.

Happy motoring!

Yep, it's been in my signature for about 3 years. Still don't have either one.
