Some Production Data

The high horsepower models such as the LS5 and LS6 were limited production and rare. Only 4,298 LS5 cars were built and 4,475 LS6 cars. What was the rarest of them all? The L78 solid lifter 375 hp model with a production of only 2,144. It was also known within the manufacturer and insurance circles that this engine was underrated for insurance purposes. This engine was almost the exact design of the earlier Corvette L78 that was rated at 425 hp. The intake and carb were changed so it would fit under the Chevelle hood. Still, most collectors agree that this engine is closer to 400 hp than to 375.
