Under that three-piece hood you’ll find a 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 that’s been built to run and neatly detailed. There are a few polished aluminum pieces and lots of details that were painted to match the bodywork, so if you do decide to pull the hood sides for cruising, folks will have something interesting to look at. An Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and polished intake manifold add a little horsepower, while stock rams horn style exhaust manifolds do a good job of controlling noise and heat, critical in a vintage rod. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission channels horsepower to a 9-inch rear end, which hangs on a set of trailing arms and coil-over shocks. Up front, it’s pure tradition with a dropped I-beam suspension, but it does include disc brakes, so it drives more modern than you’d think. Big-n-little polished aluminum wheels look great and fill the fenders with fat Michelin radials.
