This was born an L78 big block. That’s huge. Not only because the 396 cubic-inch V8 was the top-dog rated at 375 horsepower, but also on a pace car, it can give this the kind of rarity that can be counted on one hand! That’s why the restoration has a year-correct Camaro 396 that has been done to the highest standard. So you get the bold elements, like the bright orange block, shining valve covers, and stock-style air topper with big block callouts. Plus, the details are great, right down to the GM hoses on this freshly restored engine bay. But a car like this was made for driving. That’s why it fires up with the kind of eagerness like today was the first day at the Norwood factory. The Holley double-pumper four-barrel carburetor lets the V8 inhale deeper, and the Muncie four-speed manual transmission gives you firm control over the big block power. This has fresh suspension components, a 12-bolt Positraction rear end, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front.
