The engine is the original, numbers-matching L34 396 with 350 horsepower. That was one of the SS’s more popular choices, a step up from the base unit but a little less fussy than, say, an LS6. It’s docile enough for A/C, power steering, and power brakes, making it a fantastic car to drive regularly, and the bulletproof, low-stress motor should last practically forever. It was rebuilt to stock specs during the restoration, dully detailed in Chevy Orange, and dropped back into the restored engine bay. The list of new parts is about ten pages long, so suffice to say, most of it is fresh. There are a few little things that could be improved to return this car to show quality, things like the hose clamps and a few nuts and bolts, but those are very minor things that will go unnoticed on a car meant to be driven.
Turn the key and the engine barks to life easily and idles well after a few seconds of warming up. The flap on the cowl induction snaps closed as soon as the engine fires and it works correctly—it’s a lot of fun to watch it do its thing while you drive. The Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission and heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end were both rebuilt (it’s in the receipts) at the same time and there are comfortable 3.31 gears in the pumpkin, so this is a car you can drive just about anywhere without getting tired (especially with the A/C!). a new gas tank, fresh shocks, rebuilt brakes, and brand new 15-inch SS-style wheels that aren’t quite stock but sure look awesome. It has also recently been fitted with a set of fat 245/60/15 BFGoodrich radials that look great and handle better than the original bias-plys.
