A brand-new crate 350 V8 was swapped in, and the 290 horsepower it packs plenty of pop in the lightweight coupe. It’s topped with a 4-barrel carb and stock-style intake manifold, and with Chevy orange on the block and that big snorkeled air cleaner up top, the motor looks like it always belonged. Fortunately, everything still looks fresh, suggesting that it hasn’t been raced or abused, and it still runs beautifully. Turn the key and it fires quickly, settling into a cackling V8 idle that suits the flashy muscle car perfectly.
