There are quite a few reasons why we sell so many top-notch Corvettes. For starters, the Corvette is, in many enthusiasts' minds, the quintessential American classic. Given the marque's big production numbers, they're pretty easy to find. And, thanks to broad aftermarket support, they're fairly easy to build and maintain. That said; every classic takes patience. And building a project to the level of this supercharged Stingray can quickly fall into a lifelong saga. That's why, increasingly, enthusiasts are walking directly into our showroom and kicking the words “finding” and “building” right out of the conversation. Wrapping sinister aesthetics around a customized cockpit, a massaged drivetrain and 350 cubic inches of small block power, this roadster is all about the phrase “quintessential American classic”!

WHAT ELSE BUT BLACK?

A two-owner gem that rolled only 50K miles before its detailed restoration, this impressive Vette reflects rich black two-stage paint under a tailored Al Knoch Stayfast cloth top. That body-off rebuild was an eight-year affair that stripped the car's no-hit body absolutely bare, and fostered a complete refurbishing of its convertible top frame. And today, this Chevy rolls as a fresh, 500-mile land rocket that's been carefully massaged all the way down to its nuts and bolts. At the front of this drop-top, a tasteful chin spoiler parallels a stylish chrome bumper, which traces chrome-trimmed grilles that are finished with fresh marker lamps. At the sides of that spoiler, a “Stingray” branded profile seats polished door handles and a polished driver's mirror between ornate fender louvers, polished heat shields and a factory antenna. At the top of that fuselage, legendary cross-flags cage fresh glass that's sealed in polished stainless. And at the back of the car, a “CORVETTE” branded valance hangs dual-mode taillights above more chrome bumpers and a polished tag pocket.

NUMBERS-MATCHING, BUT BETTER!

Every classic has a story, and this Corvette's story goes a little something like this: A solid sports car that, thanks to a very precise engine build, rolled out of the restoration shop with a supercharged EFI small block V8 which thrives on everyday pump gas! At the top of this Vette's magic mill, a polished Paxton blower snakes its way to a 1,000cfm Accel throttle body, which fronts Accel multi-port fuel injection. That electronic system feeds lightweight aluminum heads that, like the 4-bolt block, were professionally worked by Headmasters Machine Shop of Charleston, West Virginia. Inside that block, a billet crank turns biller rods under 7.5 to 1 Blower Pistons and a solid roller cam. Fires get lit by hot MSD ignition, which sequences sparks through an MSD Blaster 2 coil, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor and loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Under those wires, polished valve covers balance polished caps between roller rockers and a compact K&N filter. At the front, billet pulleys spin an efficient aluminum water pump next to a polished Powermaster alternator. In front of those ancillaries, a thick Be Cool radiator makes excellent use of large cooling fans. Exhaust duties are handled by coated Hedman Hedders. And top-notch details include niceties like braided fluid lines, a stainless dipstick, a liquid-filled fuel pressure gauge and an auxiliary electric vacuum pump.

PUTTING THE “SPORTS” IN SPORTS CAR

Bottom-side, a spry Richmond 5-speed makes excellent use of a billet flywheel and a tough Centerforce clutch. Opposite that clutch, a powder-coated driveshaft spins a posi-traction rear end that's finished with 3.36 gears and powder-coated axles. That driveline pushes an independent factory chassis that, along with the car's rust-free frame, was completely stripped and fully powder-coated during the detailed restoration. Traditional manual steering leads traditional Delco disc brakes. Exhaust floats from the aforementioned headers into stainless aftermarket side-pipes, which flow much better that factory fodder. And power meets the pavement through timeless Chevrolet Rally wheels, which twist 255/60R15 Yokohama Avid S/T tires around polished trim rings and low-profile center caps.

TWO DECADES OF STYLE

Between the doors you'll find a tasteful leather interior that weaves subtle upgrades into timeless style. Fully rebuilt seats kick off the car's Oyster color scheme, an element hand-picked from the early '80s Corvette interior option list. In front of those mitts, a contoured dash hangs restored factory telemetry next to Delco AM/FM audio. A 'long' shifter fronts restored fiber optics. And that fully interactive handle works well with a tilting wheel and stainless-trimmed foot pedals.

With supercharged power, an athletic demeanor and unique furnishings, this awesome Corvette features an excellent combination of exhilarating performance and classic appeal. Nothing's simply 'adequate' about this car. It's an exceptionally well-done resto-mod that'll provide years of invigorating driving and turn heads anywhere it goes. If you're looking for a stunning Detroit super star that has the muscle to back up its handsome looks, this clean Chevy is your next cruiser!
