Vehicle vitals are provided through a 150-mph speedometer, a 7K-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges showing oil pressure, coolant temperature, battery voltage, and fuel level. The six-digit analog odometer reads 12,349 miles, which is in line with the last mileage figure of 12,276 miles logged on the CARFAX report in September 2022.

The LT1 5.7-liter V8 is upgraded with a cold air induction system and a special air conditioning filter. Torque is fed rearward through a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip rear differential. The seller states the car recently received an inspection and an oil change.
