The engine idles well, makes great power, and sounds great with the dual exhaust (sounds better than any Chevy 350 I've ever heard!) . The transmission shifts very smoothly through all the gears. Steers and stops very nicely. Drives down the road with no unusual vibrations, noises, etc. The engine transmission have both been rebuilt in the recent past. When you hear this car run, and drive it, you will be amazed!
