Fold open the piano hinged hood and you will find a 4-cylinder, “Iron Duke” engine nestled down in there. It is a throttle body injected 2.5-liter motor which may be better known as the 151, or the Tech IV engine. They are simple and reliable. The 12-volt electrical system means a stronger battery and a healthy starter for easy starting even in the winter, and you get good reliable lighting as well as compatibility with modern accessories. The power the engine makes runs back through a TH350 automatic transmission to the rear axle which is mounted on leaf springs while the front suspension is a solid drop axle on leaf springs. The rubber meets the road through wide white wall tires mounted on real wire wheels painted to match the body with chrome center caps that have a bowtie in the center.
