Under the hood is a crisp package that reminds you again how fresh this build is. And of course, the 350 cubic-inch V8 is something far larger than what Chevy could offer you in ’53. They try to disguise it nicely with the classic black air topper. But underneath are upgrades liKe a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and Hooker shorty headers. Power steering w/discs up front make driving easy, but this one also never wants to lose that vintage truck feeling. The four-speed manual transmission still has the classic ratios, and the fresh undercarriage shows a factory-style suspension. So the combination of the right original elements and the right upgrades delivers a total package that offers the ideal nostalgia feeling where it makes it easier to love a bygone era.
