Crate engines can be had from a lot of places these days; from major manufacturers to third party engine-builders. For the most part, they’re all pretty much the same, and look the same — especially on the LS side of things. A large portion of today’s hot-rodders have maintained a disdain for the engines, largely for how they looked; “unsightly, too modern, looks out-of-place,” and other descriptions we’ve heard in the past.
Interestingly, Lokar has teamed up with LS Classic recently, to offer customers an interesting take on the hugely-popular “LS swap.” In an effort to look more “natal” in a classic muscle car, they’ve created interested top end engine components that help the modern mills mimic the classic small-block and big-block engines of yesterday.
Lokar’s LS Classic Line of Retro Appearing Parts and Accessories
Knoxville, TN – Lokar recently launched their new LS Classic line of retro appearing crate engines, intake kits, and accessories for Chevrolet’s line of LS engines.
LS Classic Series products are designed to give your LS engine the look of the classic Chevys of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s while utilizing modern LS3 components such as injectors and drive by wire throttle bodies. The line includes period correct valve covers, air cleaners, and a simulated distributor with LS coil wire “pass through” (patent pending).
All LS Classic components are available separately or installed on one of their Classic Crate Engines. Built with a brand new, 495 horsepower LS3, the engines include a two-year warranty.
All LS Classic Series parts are engineered and manufactured in the USA and shipped from our warehouse in Knoxville, TN. To learn more about the LS Classic line of parts, please visit the website at www.lokar.com
