Spend much time stomping around the show car circuit, and you’ll discover that an LS engine swapped in an older vehicle is pretty commonplace these days.

Turns out, it’s a father and son build, and great lengths were taken to bring this retro ride up to 21st-century performance without upsetting its nifty vintage aesthetic.
