Finished in Fathom Green, the car underwent a full repaint of the original color during its restoration. Black horizontal stripes run the length of the car on both sides, which was an available option for SS models, and “SS 396” badges adorn both fenders and the grill.
Original style Rallye wheels are wrapped in BFGoodrich white letter Radial TA tires on all four corners. The braking system performance has been improved through replacing the rear drum units with power discs and a line lock was added. The Chevelles suspension in the front consists of factory stamped controls arms with springs and a sway bar. Power is put to the ground through a 12-bolt rear with an Eaton 3:31 posi-traction differential.

During the restoration, the interior surfaces were covered in sound deadening material before everything was re-installed. The radio retains a stock look but has been retrofitted with Bluetooth audio streaming and four upgraded speakers. Ancillary gauges are also fitted to the underside of the dash. A center console sits between the bucket seats and houses the horseshoe shifter for the Turbo 400 automatic transmission
