A familiar 350 cubic inch Chevrolet V8 lives under the pointed hood and it was rebuilt to stock specs when the car was built. It’s got some chrome dress-up pieces, a polished intake, and a big 4-barrel carburetor, all of which work together to make it run great and look cool. A big aluminum radiator and R134a refrigerant in the A/C system (needs to be recharged) make it a trusted highway cruiser for long hauls and service access is pretty good. Power front disc brakes and power steering come complements of a Camaro subframe and the dual Flowmasters give it a wonderfully mellow exhaust note. A 10-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears inside makes the car feel lively around town, but they’re easily tamed by the overdrive gear in the transmission. It’s got just the right rake, augmented by a set of flashy Ridlr wheels and 17-inch performance radials.
