It's a standard two wheel drive cab and comes with a 454ci (cubic inches) 7.4L V8 engine (also knows as the "Big Block") in a short-box C1500 pickup (the "C" stands for C-series truck, which is two wheel drive and C1500 is half ton), 230hp at 3600rpm, a torque ratio of 385 lbs/feet at 1600rpm, goes from 0 - 60 in under eight seconds (that's a pretty good speed for a truck), and has a three speed automatic transmission with Turbo Hydramatic 400. The interior comes equipped with special red cloth seats, black trim, black steering wheel and air vents, and sports buckle seats. It also comes with a black exterior and special made 454SS wheels from factory. This sporty pick up truck also has a 3.73 rear axle ratio, which adds to the performance of the car. It also has positrac rear ends, which describes the limited-slip differential (this allows both wheels to turn at once and improves traction) has a stock fuel pressure of 12.5 lbs, and a towing capacity of 9,500 lbs.
