Gone was the 427, in was Chevrolet’s new pavement pounding 454ci V8! This was the biggest news for the 1970 Corvette. The four-speed manual transmission was made standard, replacing the former three-speed. Sales fell to nearly half, however, due to the strike at GM. A new “cheese-grater” grille insert and front fender vent distinguished the new model from the previous year. Only one Corvette with the LS7 (454/465hp) option was built. GM had banned ultra-high performance cars, however the LS7 option was listed in early 1970 sales brochures with none ever being sold.
