The buzzy odd-fire V-6 is gone, but we like the remnants of the manual steering and brakes. We'd stuff her full of Stage 1 455 power and back it up with a six-speed stick and Chevelle-sourced 12-bolt rear axle packing 3.73 cogs. Yes, we'd keep the manual controls but run with a disc brake conversion. Power assist adds weight, saps power, and dulls the driving experience. So says us.
