Inside the cockpit, you’ll find period-style dark gray vinyl bucket seats with RaceQuip harnesses and separated with a custom center console wearing the same exterior snakeskin pattern.

The dash frames a three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel.

Power comes from a 400-horsepower Ford 331cid stroker V8 mated to an automatic transmission with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. The engine boasts numerous performance enhancements, including aluminum heads, a four-barrel carburetor, wrapped headers and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan.

Odometer shows 5,580 miles, of which 1,000 where added by the seller.
