Description:

1967 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

You might think this is just a pristine 1967 Chevrolet Corvette, ut this is really the restomod for those who love to look completely stock on the outside, ut blow everyone's doors off with 725 horsepower. Yes, ou read that right, his one has a 540 cubic inch V8 Merlin motor, aking 725 hp, nd it has all the components you need to back it up. This Sting Ray gives very few hints at its modification within. Instead it just looks like an exceptionally nice restored C2 'Vette. This satisfying appearance starts with a professional respray of the factory Marlboro Maroon. It looks bright and deep like a modern clearcoat paint should. The trim is complete, hich is something you love to see because these final-year C2s had some very nice intricate details everything from the thin stylized bumpers, o the Corvette name in cursive on the rear. It has the correct singer hood, ith black accents, ut you already know the 427 advertised on the hood is just a nice tribute to the original engine. Only if you were really looking a long time at this one, ou might pick up its beastly nature in a few of the other details. For example, he 3" side exhaust pipes are far from factory, ut they're masked by the correct protection plates. And the 17-inch rally wheels are larger than the originals, ut they are dressed in the classic Rally wheel style. An excellent touch!The interior is also about appearing original with subtle upgrades. It starts with factory saddle vinyl bucket seats that have been upgraded to a modern leather, ith correct-appearing A82 headrests. Other new features include a smaller diameter steering wheel, nd an upgraded stereo. But everything has been tastefully integrated with the factory upgrades, ike the power windows and air conditioning. In fact, ne of the only few pieces you'll be sure is not from the '60s is the welcomed upgrade to three-point seatbelts.Under the hood is where this Corvette shares its secret with the world. The 540 cubic-inch V8 is larger and bolder than any big block that came from the factory. This monster motor started with the wizards at Merlin, nd it includes upgrades such as triple deuce Holley carburetors (on Willys spacers), luminum intake, ro Topline heads, ong-tube headers, ustom-built oil pan, nd a BeCool radiator. There's plenty more performance features, ut we don't have the space to list them. We'll be happy to go over all the details when you call, ut just know for now that this one boldly advertises its 725 hp on the triangle air cleaner. So you can be certain the moment you turn the key that the exhaust note will rumble with enough authority to let everyone know this Sting Ray has something special under the hood. All this added power needs to be reinforced all the way to the road, nd that's why this also has been upgraded to a Tremec five-speed manual, ith an SFI scatter shield, ending power to a Positraction rear end. Even thought the C2 Corvette already has a superb fully independent suspension, his one has been further upgraded with tubular upper front A-arms, nd Penske rear shocks with new torsion bars, nd upgraded transverse leaf spring by Vette Brakes and Products Inc. This package is completed with power steering, our wheel disc brakes, nd Michelin Pilot Sport tires to give you a classic car with superior road-handling.This is such an amazing, nd thorough build, hat you will need to take this coupe to plenty of car shows. After all, f you don't, he only thing most people will see of this one-of-a-kind Corvette are the taillights. Don't miss out on this amazing build, all today!!
