A matching white full-length waterfall-style center console separates the front and rear seats. Black carpet covers the floorboard. The manual window cranks and exit and vent window handles are chrome.

The dashboard has been modified to accept a set of round Classic Instruments gauges that include readouts for the fuel, oil, temperature, and voltage along with a 120-mph speedometer. It is smoothed, filled, and painted gloss Kandy Tangerine with scallops to match the exterior. A Kandy Tangerine aftermarket tilt steering column is topped with a white 1954 Buick steering wheel that has a chrome horn ring. Custom teardrop white Lucite knobs are mounted to the tilt and turn signal levers. An aftermarket Alpine stereo head unit powering a five-speaker system with two subwoofers is mounted in the center console along with a chrome aftermarket automatic transmission shifter topped with a matching white Lucite teardrop knob. A padded hinged armrest covering a storage compartment completes the console. 

The original engine has been replaced with a 350ci Chevrolet V8 mated to a 350 Turbo-Hydramatic transmission. A Holley Sniper fuel injection system, a polished intake, aluminum valve covers, an open-element air cleaner, stainless exhaust manifolds, and a chrome alternator, water pump, and pulleys are present.
