The 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood is quite a bit more potent than the original 327. Outfitted with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock intake manifold, new Holley 4-barrel carburetor, and a decent cam inside, it loves to rev and sounds nasty. It also starts easily and runs great out on the road. With the automatic transmission, it’s plenty entertaining to drive and doesn’t ever get cranky in traffic. Long-tube headers feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust system, and the TH350 3-speed automatic snaps off lightning-quick shifts that make it a blast to drive.
