The only way you could get the large and reliable 350 cubic-inch Chevy small block in 1980 was with the Z/28 package. So it’s great to not only have the top motor in this cool cruiser, but also it’s great to know the V8 is the numbers-matching unit. You can really tell this likes to showcase originality with the bold blue on the block and the diaphragm around the air cleaner for a true fresh air breathing car. And while there is stock look on top, the addition of long tube headers on the upgraded dual exhaust mean more power and a better rumble. Best of all, you’re in complete control of this powerful V8 and its soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Adding to this driver’s attitude are features like power steering, front disc brakes, and sway bars front & rear.
