Things are looking impressive just underneath that cowl hood. The 350 cubic inch crate V8 sitting at the center of the engine compartment carries an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and intake manifold and benefits from a chrome dress-up kit that has its components looking their best, highlighted by the clean, glossy black surfaces of the inner fenders and firewall. Having logged just about 25,000 miles since its installation, the engine is very much in its prime and teams with a 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission that provides a welcome overdrive gear for low revs at highway speeds. Power steering makes this sharp-looking Chevy easy to navigate, while power brakes that feature discs up front bring its Torq Thrust wheels to dependable stops.
