Under the hood of this Elky is a wicked strong 396 cubic inch V8, which snaps immediately to attention and runs extremely well. It’s got the usual upgrades including an Edelbrock intake manifold, Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, an HEI ignition, 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 big orange Chevrolet valve covers, the chrome open-element air cleaner, as well as the orange painted block that really pops out from in between the black inner fenders. The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, plenty capable to handle all the power, and it snaps through the gears with authority. There’s a newer Flowmaster-style dual exhaust system that gives it a great performance sound and the 10-bolt rear end feels like it has street-friendly gears inside. Handsome polished Billet Specialties wheels stuff the wheel wells and look awesome, wearing big 225/60/16 front and 235/60/16 rear Goodyear radials.
