The 345 horsepower LS4 454 cubic inch V8 delivers a powerful wallop of torque at any speed yet with its more street-friendly nature, makes an ideal cruiser. The engine bay is detailed to show standards with all the correct pieces, accurate right down to the Chevy Orange paint and fully functional cowl-induction air cleaner. The list of new components is extensive and it’s obvious that the work is quite recent as even the cast iron exhaust manifolds still look fresh from the molds. It’s backed by a new Muncie M-22 4-speed with only 800 miles on it and a bulletproof 12-bolt rear end, and exhales through a reproduction dual exhaust system that looks and sounds right. There’s more new stuff underneath, including the gas tank, and looks highly detailed in almost every way. Correct SS wheels with 225/70/14 BFGoodrich T/A radials at all four corners complete the illusion.
