The fuel-injected 350 cubic-inch V8 LT1 motor was borrowed from a Corvette, and it roars to life. The V8 presents very nicely with the tidy engine bay featuring the slick purple firewall. Mustang II-style independent front suspension, stout Ford 9-inch rear w/limited slip, and sway bars front & rear. If that already sounds like a great anytime driver, then you’ll also love the power steering, front disc brakes, and four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive.
