This 302 cubic-inch V8 has a clean and mean look, right down to the ribbed Cobra valve covers. It has the right components you want, including a four-barrel carburetor, deep sump oil pan, serpentine belt system, and a nice cam upgrade. There’s even an Optima red top battery mounted in the trunk for better weight distribution. The Tremec five-speed manual transmission gives you full control over the V8’s power and muscular soundtrack. The quick ratio on the power rack and pinion steering makes for quick course corrections. Plus, the modern ZR-rated tires and four-wheel disc brakes give you firm control.
