Beautiful 1970 Chevelle Drag Racing at Firebird Raceway (VIDEO)
Check out this beautiful 1970 Chevelle that was Drag Racing at Firebird Raceway near Boise, Idaho. Watch as his first opponent crashes against the wall during the run. And on the 2nd run his opponent does a wheelie and is headed in the Chevelle’s direction and has to lift. Great racing action. #Shorts
The Chevelle SS 454 needs no further introduction. Developed during the second generation (1968-1972), this Chevelle rolled off the assembly line with the monstrous 7.4-liter LS6 V8. Sporting four-bolt mains, forged aluminum pistons, forged crank and rods, a solid lifter cam, aluminum intake manifold, and Holley 780 carburetor, this mill was rated at an incredible 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet (678 Nm) of torque.
These numbers enable the 50-year-old Chevelle to keep up with most modern muscle cars, so it’s far from surprising that it can leave a 1965 GTO well behind in a drag race.
