It'* a 427 400HP but he'* got a couple of "upgraded" components. The cam and crank is from an L88. It'* a matching number car too. It'* got the factory Muncie M22 trans with a 3600lb Borg and Beck three finger clutch. The clutch is a bit much, but when he built it he wanted something that would hold together stop light to stop light.

He restored it in the early 80'*.
