The custom interior is leather, not vinyl, and that makes a big difference when you climb inside.

The cowhides look amazing with the door panels, steering wheel, and custom headliner all part of the investment in excellent leather.

Backing up this performance appearance is a 327 cubic-inch small block that's been enhanced with go-fast goodies like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers. This setup adds extra rumble to the dual exhaust. An outstanding custom like this is meant to be driven, and so you've got great anytime features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of BF Goodrich gForce tires wrapped arouond 18-inch Billet Specialties alloy wheels with lowered suspension.
