Description of the details:
Built by Eric Conner’s, owner of SoCal Suspension in San Diego, CA

The Chassis features air suspension on all four corners and mustang 2 style front suspension with tubular a-arms. The rear is a work of art all its own. It features a 4-link with a notched frame, deletion of the quarter wheel wells and trunk floor to accommodate ride height, and an accuair air management system complete with copper lines to give the setup a rugged look.

The body has been smoothed in kustom fashion–nosed and decked to give it a streamline feel as well as extended rear fenders to give the car some serious road prowess. The roof is chopped 4 1/2 inches which is modest enough to make it easily street-able but still noticeable enough to give the roofline some aggressive flow.

The bottom half is a dark gunmetal grey which happens to be a factory color off a Lexus IS F. The roof, which has been the subject of attention at many shows, was also performed by Nick Battaglia of Loose Cannon Customs and is a silver base flake with a green candy top coat from House of Kolor.

Drivetrain is genuine to Chevy’s tried and true 350 that was pulled out of a ’97 Chevy Silverado. The 350 is mated to a 4L60E transmission. Bore and stroke are stock on the block but a mild cam was added. The engine still features the stock Vortec heads for some dynamic flow while an Edelbrock intake manifold feeds it. A Holley 650cfm sits atop the Edelbrock. Custom headers were fabricated and to round out the rear portion of the drivetrain, the rearend was pulled from an ’85 El Camino.

Inside, the original front bench was used but the rails were cut down 1 1/2-inches. In the rear, a ’76 Camaro rear seats which fit perfectly like they were meant to be there. Lindy’s Auto Upholstery performed the classy diamond stitching on the benches and door panels. The center gauge is the original, heating and a/c are original, with an addition of an Alpine head unit in the glove for some updated tunes.
