Instead, it packs an electric powertrain with 450 horsepower.
The batteries powering it all come from the Chevy Bolt EV.
Chevy calls this concept powertrain an "eCrate," which is a nod to the crate engine culture.
Outside, it still holds true to classic hot rod culture, though.
Perhaps it's a hint that Chevy will support hot rodders in the brave new world that will be electric cars.
For now, there's no word on if the eCrate will become reality, though.
