Re: Two '70 Monte SS454 Projects
Correct. The 454 was only available in the Z20 SS package. Required and included options with the 1970 Z20 package:
-Fender rocker emblems
-LS5 454 engine
-3 speed automatic transmission (TH400)
-12 bolt rear
-Airlift rear shocks
-Rear sway bar and thicker front sway bar
-Dual exhaust with resonators and chromed rectangular tips.
-Blacked out rear filler panel
-SS emblem on rear filler panel
-Additional moldings above rear filler panel
-Rear bumper rub strip (deleted when rear bumper guards were ordered)
NOT included in the SS package:
-Bucket seats, floor shifter, gauge package.
-Could NOT be had with the SS package:
-LS6 454 engine
-4 speed manual transmission
-Cruise control (the airlift pump went where the cruise control unit goes)
-Rear fender "limo" skirts.
Although it's be claimed many times, no 1970/1971 SS 454 Monte Carlos have ever been documented to have the LS6 and/or 4 speed manual transmission.
How may I help you?
