The exhaust is routed thru Custom Modified Big Block Hooker side mount headers to Custom Flowmaster 5″ core Mufflers and then dumps right in front of the rear wheels. The complete exhaust system has been Cromex Ceramic coated, This allows the side mount 5″ mufflers to be much cooler than the old Hooker set up. You can actually put your hand on these mufflers and not get instantly burnt.
The interior was kept close to stock looking as possible the seats are from a 89 corvette then recovered in leather to match the rest of the car. Auto meter Gauges were used to monitor the monster engine. For creature comfort a Vintage Air A/C system was used that uses the factory controls. Power windows were added. and a tilt steering wheel was rebuilt and installed. A new Auto Sound AM/FM Stereo system was added for the times you get tired of listening to the Beautiful sound of the engine.

The Body has been treated to a through massaging, then L88 style flared fenders were molded in. The fender lips were brought back to the factory shape to keep the lines of the body flowing, the body lines were sharpened up and the rear spoiler was slightly raised to flow with the rest of the body. then the body was coated with a beautiful Electron blue paint with a Metallic Grey center stripe that flows over the hard top and continues across the rear deck lid. All new glass was installed and the stainless was re polished. A spoiler was added to the front after it was modified to also flow with the rest of the body lines, A single hoop roll bar was added as a bolt on and can be removed very easy if desired.
