Series 34 V8 Sport Coupe
The Chevy Chevelle was produced from 1964 through 1977. It was a mid-sized car that ranged from an economical family car to powerful muscle cars. It was one of the companies' most successful models.

Prior to 1970, GM had restricted mid-sized cars to engines with less than 400 cubic-inch displacement, though many inventive people found ways around it. In 1970, GM dropped this rule and bigger engines became available. The LS6 packaged included a 454 cubic-inch engine offering 450 horsepower and capable of running the 1/4 mile in low to mid-13 seconds. The stock LS6 at 450 horsepower produced more power than any other stock production engine during the muscle car era.

Drag racer Bob Hamilton purchased this bright red Chevelle LS6 in 1969 as a Valentine's Day gift for his wife. In 1970, he turned it into a drag car named 'Red Alert' to compete in the highly contested NHRA SS/DA class. It was very successful and in 1971 toymaker AMT created a model of the car that became their all-time sales leader. The car continued to race until 1976 when it was Top Stock Eliminator in 14 out of 16 races. It was campaigned during the 1990s in nostalgia drag racing events against such famous cars as Ronnie Sox's 426 Hemicuda.

'RED ALERT', the World's Most Famous Chevelle - In 1969 drag racer Bob Hamilton ordered a bright red 1970 Chevelle for his wife as a Valentine's present. Bob took over the car himself and started racing it in NHRA. The Cold War was in effect and he called the car Red Alert. In 1972 the American Model Toy Company took notice of this car and introduced it as a AMT model becoming a sales leading toy. The ERTL Model Company made a limited production run of 2500 in 1999.

A 450 horsepower LS6 equipped SS 454 could run 0 to 60 mph in 6.1-seconds and cover the quarter mile in 13.44 seconds at 108 mph.

This car in unrestored, retaining its original sheetmetal and interior and 60-percent of the original paint. It still ca be seen participating at nostalgia drag events.
