Front wheels are fully polished ET ‘Gasser’ 10 spokes, rears are American Racing Torque Thrust II's - all shod with B F Goodrich Whitewall Tyres.
Engine is a brand new crate GM 350ci V8 (300 bhp) with an Offenhauser intake manifold fed by triple Holley 94 carburettors. The stainless steel exhaust headers are connected to a full polished stainless steel exhaust system. Transmission is a brand new crate TCI Streetfighter TH350 auto trans with TCI ‘Saturday Night Special’ torque converter.
