The butterfly hood gives a clear view for people to see the motor, so they made sure the powerplant was worth showing off. You have bright components like the alternator, compressor, and dual inlet air intake. There are even cool details, like Chevrolet’s Heartbeat insignia on the valve covers is finished in purple to coordinate with the exterior stripe. There are also thoughtful functional upgrades like the HEI ignition and electric pusher fans. The 350 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. That helps deliver nice power and a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. Plus, you have great driving features like a three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and even cruise control.
