Offered only for 1971 and only 12 produced, this Corvette had a manual, heavy duty 4 speed only, Aluminum heads/cast iron block LS-6 454 with a factory rated 425 horsepower. Essentualy It's an LT-1 Corvette but instead of the LT-1 solid lifter 350 motor, its the LS-6.

Do big block cars not have a fan shroud? I am Aware that the L88 didn't have one... There is not much space it Looks like

In 2010 at Mecum Auction, $400,000 was turned down. Since then I don't know what has happened this Banshee.

Wow, but it is a rare one!


2010 is actually also the year when my car was auctioned/ purchased over Mecum at the Kissimmee Auction. Then it went to Germany

Hi Alex,
I believe you'll find that typically LS-6 cars had a fan shroud.

When I win the lotto, this bad boy is mine. And it will get out for the occasional Sunday drive, few hundred miles a year should be ok.
