You catch this Corvette out and about at some car shows usually with a crowd gathering around and gawking at how extreme this build is. Under the hood rests a BBC 511cid V8 that is pumping out over 700 horsepower. This engine has been a no expense spared build that includes Diamond Racing Pistons, Dart Intake, Holley Dominator 1050 Carburetor, Air Motive Fuel System, custom fabricated Radiator for better cooling and much more. This engine is exhaling through a pair of Hooker Super Competition Headers with a Ceramic Coated Flowmaster Exhaust System which sounds amazing! All of this power is paired with a TCI Full Manual Turbo 400 Trans with a TCI 4000 Stall Converter. The tires spin through a narrowed Moser 33-Spline Axles with a 4.56 gear. Full Alston 4-link suspension with QA1 coil overs keep this beauty in a straight line while you stomp on the gas pedal. This beauty has had extensive chassis reinforcement to make sure that this gorgeous Corvette translates power to the ground appropriately. Stopping power comes courtesy Aerospace Component Billet disc brakes tucked behind Centerline Wheels wrapped in some sticky Mickey Thompson tires.
The paint on this Corvette is of high quality. Every bit of this Corvette has been modified with parts you cannot just buy off a shelf at your local auto parts store. This Corvette would take nearly 6 figures to replicate and has many trophies to prove that it is one of a kind.
