    It looks like they're using a replica plastics rear center filler.

    I love the last sentence under the pic!
    "1977 was the first year of the "downsized" B-bodies, and they aren't as heavy as you might think."

    In reality, the 77-79's are a couple hundred pounds less than a 2nd Gen Camaro.
