Yellow with black stripes and vinyl 454 SS car (or so the fenders say), looked like a full resto type car with stock skinny wheels and such.

What was the stock rating of the 454 in 72? I know they changed HP rating type but don't remember what the HP/TQ was listed as.

In '72 with insurance issues, unleaded gas and smog, as I recall the 454 was way down to 230!!

I think it was rated at 270 hp
Yes, that was the rating on paper. But the '72 LS5 was IDENTICAL to the '71 LS5 (heads, cam, jetting - everything). And the '71 LS5 was rated at 365 hp.
