Re: 1970 Chevelle LS3

A lot of variables go into that equation.

Some can be answered by pictures and a build list, others require a close personal inspection by a qualified person.

A 1970 Chevelle with an original LS3 should be valued somewhere between a standard Malibu and an SS 396 but closer to the SS value.

If its the original engine, these are fairly rare, and often called a "Malibu 400".

The engine is similar to the L34 350HP "396" (402) found in the SS396, with a slightly milder cam. The 1970 LS3 was rated at 330 HP. Despite being called a "400", it too was actually a 402.




Or did you mean it has a modern "LS" motor?


Impossible to guess without more info and pictures, but I'd guess less than $50k...

Tony I was thinking like you were but it quickly dawned on me, being its a restomod, that hes looking for an LS LS3 not a MkIV.

Re: 1970 Chevelle LS3

Tony, I do not beleive the man knows small v big block only LS.

The question is unanswerable HOWEVER, I know guys that will build whatever you desire. Yet, be prepared for just over $100 for a brand new car with modest upgrades,done at professional ( like AACA for restored cars) level.

I dont know if the Chevellestuff "Snow White" is on these pages anywhere, but there is a roughly 120K brand new car. All brand new GM running gear, leather interior, convertible, AC etc etc. Can you do it for half that, sure, using used parts. The damn thing runs the 1/4 almost as fast as my rat-infested old skool junk to boot! Almost.

here's a pic. and again, this is a bespoke deal, so you call the color, wheels, etc. For 100+, you get a custom built ride. Coupe would be less obviously.

The next one I saw sort of on the design board was a bit hotter ( turbo, 6 speed manual, etc) and more like 150K when done.
