A 454 cubic inch V8 totally fills the engine bay and delivers the kind of effortless performance that proves there’s no replacement for displacement. An aluminum intake and Holley 650CFM double pumper carb handle the induction duties, and it sports a highly-detailed look that likely cost a fortune to achieve. Lots of chrome means you’ll be opening the hood every chance you get and hardware upgrades include the aluminum radiator, HEI ignition, and a newer brake booster and master cylinder. The engine was painted Chevy orange to keep a correct profile and let the brightwork do the showing off, but the internals are built for combat. A heavy-duty TH400 3-speed automatic doesn’t mind the torque churning through it and the 12-bolt rear uses highway friendly gears for modern road manners. Shiny Rally wheels continue the stock look and carry new 215/60/15 front and 235/70/15 rear blackwall performance radials.
