It's a 70's custom, he says in the description from 76 to 82. I used to see the type at the Carl Casper shows. Call it rice if you want but it's nothing more than an old custom that's been refreshed. Back when it was done the cars weren't that valuble and you could get a big block for next to nothing due to the 70s gas crisis. Sadly, the Boss 302 engine probably got traded or sold off back then.
