An aluminum-trimmed center console is also fitted between the seats, housing the factory gear lever with leather shift boot. The original radio has since been replaced with an aftermarket Clarion head unit.A 3-spoke wheel with wood rim sits ahead of factory Smiths instrumentation, consisting of a 160-mph speedometer and a 6K-rpm tachometer. An aluminum trim panel surrounds the center section of the dash and contains gauges for oil pressure, fuel level, water temperature, and voltage. 14,912 miles are shown on the five-digit analog odometer which is not original to the car.The matching numbers 3.8-liter DOHC inline-6 is original to the car and factory rated 265 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
