THE FIRST LS1 EVER BUILT For Sale
THE FIRST LS1 EVER BUILT:
The First LS1 ever built
In 1994 The Chevrolet
Engineering team had Alcoa Manufacturing develop a "Mock up" ls1Including "Experimental sample" parts from Bosch, GM, and Benteler automotive.The stickers and tags all credit the companies and teams involved in development of the engine.Alongside CPC Engineering inspection tags as this was the very beginning of the LS1 we have all come to love and enjoy.
Here are some facts associated with the motor.- Factory assembled with no pistons or rods- The crankshaft has no woodruff key slot- The Headers are Experimental castings (well before they had a mold)- The Block and Heads are stamped "mock up"- The harness you see in the photos was designed by JL and was used to test the accessories and sensors on the motor- Almost every single component has its own casting number or "Experimental Sample" tag with a date back to 1994
I found this from a man who worked on the engineering team for Chevrolet
Performance from 1985 to 2001He was a part of the original development of the LSX platform, and was able to keep the engine for personal reMini
scence, when he passed away I had the opportunity to purchase the motor from his brother.
This truly belongs in a museum or a collectors inventory
