About “Land Shark”

The Chevy II has a new engine raising the hp to 400+ built 357ci (.040 over) w/10:1 pistons and new Comp 280 Magnum cam. The Holley was also rebuilt and jetted. Exhaust has Hooker Comp headers and matching Hooker 2-1/4" dual exhaust. Stock bucket seats, floor ratchet shifter and new interior complement a nice ride down the road. Very nice to drive on the highway and open road. Performance tuned.
