When you peek in the engine bay, the bright orange block of the Chevy V8 radiates like a treasure uncovered. These small block motors are great to see because they take plenty of upgrades and are easy to get parts, that’s why this 350 is now a 383 stroker motor with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, MSD ignition, and headers. Not only does that last feature add power, but it helps give the dual exhaust a satisfying growl. More than just upgrading the motor, this vintage Dodge feels great going down the road thanks to upgrades like the Chevy independent front suspension, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and the grip of modern performance tires at all four corners.
