All original parts that were replaced can go along with the vehicle. It had a new intake manifold, 4 barrel carburetor, heads, and electronic ignition for easier starts. Options include A/C, AM/FM/Cassette player, power convertible top, power brakes, power steering, power locks, power seats, seat belts, leather interior, white walls, and radial tires. The 390 CID V8 is rated at 300 horespower which as stated earlier, has been brought up a bit with some bolt on performance parts.
