In 1972 Chevrolet?? started importing a small pickup truck from Japan which they called the Chevy?? LUVTM. It ran though 4 model generations before being discontinued in 2012. Off the showroom floor it only had a 1.8-liter small 4 cylinder engine producing about 75 horsepower. But any self-respecting street machine needs a V-8 and lots of power. So this nimble machine has a 262 ci V-8 with plenty of power to spare.
