The engine bay is just as crisp and clean as the rest of the build it has a terrific Buick 264ci Nailhead motor – a true classic hot rod icon. This V8 was rebuilt during the restoration, and all the polished pieces and a smooth firewall mean it’s ready to show off from every angle. While it has the right vintage look, they also added the right modern pieces to keep it a strong-running powerhouse, including an Accel ignition coil and an aluminum radiator. It inhales deeply with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a terrific tune from the center-exit dual exhaust. And keeping that old-school power machine feeling on the road are features like the Saginaw three-speed manual transmission, a polished hairpin drop axle front end, and ladder bars in the rear.
