Introduced for 1970 on the Camaro and Corvette, Chevrolet's potent new LT1 engine delivered awesome performance with 370 factory-rated horsepower on tap. Based on a high-strength cylinder block with 4-bolt mains and forged internals, the LT1 was built to perform with a hot solid-lifter valvetrain and breathed deeply with free-flowing cylinder heads and low-restriction intake and exhaust systems. Affectionately called "The Mouse That Roared" by Corvette chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov, the 350 cubic inch LT-1 delivered big-block performance with great handling by virtue of its much lower weight. Importantly, the LT1 often slipped under the purview of increasingly strict insurance companies on the lookout for big-block premiums.
While lowered compression ratios brought gross horsepower ratings down to 330 HP by 1971, performance was essentially intact. Just 1,949 of 21,801 Corvettes comprising 643 Convertibles and 1,306 Coupes left the factory with LT1 power for 1971. Today, these special high-performance cars rank among the most enjoyable and sought-after of all classic Corvettes built.
