Lift this Impala's glossy turquoise hood and you'll find a 348 cubic inch Super Turbo Thrust V8 that wears a 1958-exclusive 3751872 casting number and a June (F) 13th (13) of 1958 (58) casting date. Fully rebuilt, this top-of-the-line, 280 horsepower big block is almost too pretty to risk putting heat into. And absolutely every item, from its fresh coat of Chevy Orange paint to its unique bowtie branded valve covers, has been completely detailed for show. At the top of the block, a satin black, dual-snorkel air cleaner funnels wind into a fully restored tri-power set up that includes three Rochester 2-carburetors, a network of stainless fuel lines and a familiar glass sediment bowl. At the sides of the block, restored exhaust manifolds allow the oversquare cylinders ample breathing room by funneling spent gases into a new true dual exhaust system. At the back of the block, a traditional points distributor sends fire through fresh 7mm High Temperature plug wires.
