chevrolet_super_sport Chevrolet Blocks
The longstanding patriarch big block 409 remains the classic race motor of yesteryear. With its debut in 1961, the 409 was churning out 425 hp, dominating NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes.
In 1963, NASCAR racer Junior Johnson raised pulses and eyebrows with an unprecedented performance during a Daytona 500 qualifying race. Underhood of his '63 Impala was a 427/650 hp, “Mystery V8″. Only 50 were produced, some claiming only 18 ever produced. Regardless, it's one of the rarest GM engines ever built.
By the late '60's, Chevrolet’s new Camaro was gearing up for the SCCA’s Trans-Am road racing series. Utilizing the 327, engineers were able to take the 4" bore from the 327 and the 3" stroke from the 283 to create the 302, thus, meeting the series’ strict 302 CID limitations. With the suspension RPO code Z28, the Camaro was an instant winner in the SCCA TA series.
Fred Gibb, a Chevrolet dealer, took Chevy’s special ordering system to a whole new level in 1969. Commonly referred to as the “COPO,” the 427 ZL1 engine was resurrected when this special ordering process allowed Gibb to build 50 1969 Camaro with race-spec, all aluminum high performance motors.
Considered to be the maximum muscle of the golden muscle car era is the LS6, the biggest brute on the streets. Rated by GM at 450 hp, it thundered with 11:1 compression, rectangular port high-performance heads, solid lifter cam, aluminum intake and a Holley carb. Not counting the Corvette's L72 427's, the LS6 was the most powerful engine placed between a Chevy's fenders until the LS7 came out in the 21st century Z06.
With a racing history that spans more than a century, and the motor building heritage to back it up, Chevrolet continues to be "The One to Beat", and when you heard the Chevy Thunder roll, you knew, "The Boys were back in town!"
