Chevy Big Block Engine

Pushing this green machine around is a carbureted Chevy 396 big-block that was tweaked with a Performer intake and Quadrajet carb, with a Comp Cams 4x4 cam giving its heartbeat all the way into the NV4500 shift box. An FJ55 custom five-core radiator cools all that engine. One piece for FJ fanatics to admire is the ultra-rare '63 "Land Cruiser" emblazoned grille that Brian was able to find. It sits right in back of that original Warn 8274 winch.
