Having invested over $170,000 in this machine, the current owner proclaims it to be “one of the neatest cars I have ever owned.” The Corvette is powered by a GM ZZ4 350-cid V-8 crate engine that produces 430-hp. This engine is not only GM's “baddest” street engine, but this one is also reported to be “all decked out for show and go.”
Many of the top component brands are mentioned in the build which includes billet pulleys, serpentine belt, air conditioning, Tremec T-56 six-speed transmission and a general overall custom appearance wherever you look. The complete undercarriage of this car is all late model C4 Corvette, even the floors were lowered to give the owner more leg room for comfort. The frame is now braced completely underneath with all aftermarket parts. The seats are Al Knoch black leather. A custom CD stereo system has been placed neatly in the car and is impressive in sound production. The Corvette also has a chromed Ididit adjustable steering column with a custom wood steering wheel. The side pipes are hooked up and tuned to sound “awesome.”
The paint work took over one year to paint, (at over $25,000) and was executed by a professional painter of airbrush customs. According to the previous owner, this car “has won it all.” This is reported to include Super Chevy, ISCA, Good Guys, Daytona, Corvette Expo, Grand Rod Run, Boyd's Picks, and many more. The attention to detail on this car is described as being outstanding. There are many eye-catching details incorporated into the build. The owner further reports that this is “what a 1967 Corvette restomod is supposed to be” and you’ll be able to get aboard and drive it on any tour or to any destination without worry of mechanical issues. No corners were cut in the presentation and mechanical execution of this build.
