It's the 1 of 1 "LS6" Monte Carlo we've all been looking for!

** LINK **

Again, not the original motor (that's a given) and an alleged SS with no mention of proof. Buyer beware. Price is on the high side, but hey, it was featured in the Oct. '92 issue of Super Chevy.

Sounds like a lot more than an LS6 454 to me. By the description of whats in that engine, he's got half the asking price in that alone!

Seems like a good buy to me though, you wouldn't build a car like that for 28k just ask any one thats built one. grin

Plus looks like a very nice car, I would like to see close ups of paint and interior.

Agreed on wanting see pics of the paint and interior. I'm not sure why the seller put the "LS6" in the title as I don't see how it applies given the limited information provided.

Oh how painfully aware I am of the price to build one like this -- still the market value just isn't there for our beloved Montes so I think he'll be lucky to get that price ... unless that really is an SS. Then all bets are off!

I agree
Very cool car but it will be hard to get that price. Still a good value with that said.

Nice car ...and its gotta be quick. Kinda funny though. Anything that would have made it an LS6 has been replaced by aftermarket stuff .... other than maybe crank which he makes no mention of.

Maybe its the original LS5 but he used creative license since it is now beyond the power of an LS6? Who knows.

He has no asking price listed now...must have pulled it.
