The engine is painted in "Chevrolet Orange". Some parts are finished with silver paint, gray paint, black paint or chrome plated to simulate the original finish. A special feature is a cutaway section at the right front corner of the engine. This cutaway section exposes a functional model the cylinders, pistons, connecting rods and valve train. The crankshaft can be manually rotated by turning the flywheel from a slot in the bottom of the bell housing.
