The engine bay is exactly what you want in a car that was built to show off. The smooth burgundy firewall is a great backdrop for plenty of polished components like the valve covers, air topper, compressor, and much more. Underneath all the shiny elements is the stability of a small-block 350 cubic-inch V8. We don’t mind a Ford running Chevy power when it’s this legendary unit that’s known for reliability, power, and a huge list of performance upgrades. In fact, this one already has a four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers to add an extra wallop of power. You can hear the power of this motor every time you fire it up and let the Flowmaster dual exhaust produce its fierce rumble. But this one is built for far more than brute force. It’s mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and a rear end that is built to be good on the highway. Plus, you have an upgraded independent front suspension, power steering, and front disc brakes.
