The engine is the original 327 cubic inch V8, which was recently rebuilt and runs extremely well. It’s got the usual upgrades including an aluminum intake manifold, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, full roller valvetrain, MSD ignition, ported heads, and long-tube headers to help build torque. The engine bay is extremely sanitary and clean, with a lot of dress-up items such as those chrome valve covers and air cleaner as well as a custom serpentine belt drive with polished accessories. The transmission is a 4-speed manual, likely the car’s original transmission, and it snaps through the gears with authority. There’s a recent Flowmaster dual exhaust system that gives it a great performance sound and the 12-bolt rear end feels like it has street-friendly gears inside.
