Here we have a great looking tribute to the L-79 Chevy II! In 1966 Chevrolet introduced a new high-power variant of the Chevy II, the L-79. Chevy really put the power in that tiny engine bay, offering option code L79, which was the killer 350hp 327. Think about it, 350 horsepower in a 2,500-pound car. We're talking drag racing here. The engine put out great power and looked great, too, with a chromed, dual-snorkel air cleaner, chrome rocker covers and chrome oil filler and cap at the front of the aluminum intake manifold, which sported a 600cfm Holley four-barrel carburetor.
The Chevy II you are looking at is powered by a 283 small block, dressed up as a 327. Completing the L-79 look is the hard-to-find dual-snorkel air cleaner. Inside the motor is a performance camshaft with 60cc cylinder heads for better compression and pushing the exhaust through a set of Doug's Headers. Running that power to the rear is a Muncie 4 speed. Putting that power to the ground is an Eaton 10 bolt posi-trac using a 3.55 gear ratio. Assisting with traction is set of adjustable traction bars. Helping stop the drama is a set of 11 inch front brake rotors, much better stopping power than the old drums!
You'd be hard pressed to find a better L-79 tribute car! The paint, the chrome and the glass all looks great and is ready to take on the next car show!
