Under the hood is a 383 stroker motor featuring a 400 crank as well as Lunati camshaft, lifters, and springs. Edelbrock provides the four-barrel carburetor, Performer RPM intake, and headers. If this sounds like a serious performance V8, just wait until you hear the rumble of the dual exhaust. But as much as this looks like it was built for the stop light grand prix, the versatility of this Chevy goes much deeper. It’s a power steering pickup with a three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and a 3.73 rear end (good for power take-offs but geared so low you lose everyday drivability.) This means your cool Saturday night cruising pickup can easily be your highway cruiser, too.
