AM/FM Radio, Air Conditioning, Heat, Leather Seats, Tilt Wheel, Power Brakes, Maintenance Records, Defrost, CD Player, Manual Convertible Top, Front Disc Brakes, Seatbelts Under the hood is where the best upgrade is. Just like a Shelby Cobra, this Brit style gets a major power boost from an American V8. In this case, it’s a Chevy 350 cubic-inch motor that looks awesome filling every inch of the engine bay. Plus it offers plenty of shine in places like the valve covers, air cleaners, and alternator shroud. And really the motor needs to looks so good because people will be asking plenty of questions about this very unique roadster. But more than just looking great it has been upgraded with performance components like a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Holley Street Dominator intake. It’s also backed up by reliable components like an aluminum radiator, electric fan, and there is less than 27K miles on the whole build. That’s why this drop top not only makes a great sound out of the dual exhaust, but it also fires up eagerly. On the road the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission is perfect for cruising in the everyday situations, and it’s also stout enough to handle the times when you want to use this lightweight roadster for all-out speed. Plus, the Mustang II style independent front suspension, front disc brakes, and modern Kumho tires offer the kind of control you wished you had in a ’60s machine.
