Ably representing the sentiment that “there’s no replacement for displacement” a 454 cubic inch V8 sits between the shock towers, armed with a Weiand intake manifold, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and an HEI ignition to extract plenty of output from its considerable size. It pairs with a 4-speed manual transmission that puts maximum control of all that power in the driver’s hands while shifting very solidly. There are a number of recently replaced components also on board, including an aluminum radiator, master cylinder and brake booster, dual exhaust and a fresh suspension that affords a nice, straight-tracking ride on a set of ultra sharp 15″ repro Camaro Rally wheels that are wrapped with BF Goodrich T/A radials. Both the featured power steering and power brakes are in top form, so this vintage Chevy navigates and stops easily. Below, the undercarriage is solid and straight.
