Power comes by a 283 Chevy V/8 matched to a 350 Chevy automatic plus a 9" rear end. Rack & pinion with tilt steers the vehicle and the car stops with disc front brakes with drums at the rear. A CD player is installed plus a newer VDO gauge cluster. The cloth front seats are manual and the car sports slightly tinted windows. The car sits and sounds right and is a joy to drive.
