1964 Chevrolet Corvette LS1 RestomodThis 1964 Chevrolet Corvette keeps the iconic C2 silhouette, but it has the modern 350 hp fuel-injected LS1 engine. Plus, take the time to look over the sleek paint, upgraded A/C interior, overdrive transmission, and ultra-clean chassis that's all part of the fresh restomod build.
The full restoration of this Sting Ray was completed in June 2020, and so the fresh look over every inch is no accident. While this coupe was already born in the desirable Riverside Red, the level of gloss and shine from this modern clearcoat application gives it a whole new dimension of attention-grabbing appeal. This deep luster also lets the sunlight showcase how straight the body panels are everywhere from the crisp crease in the roof to the flush fit of those iconic hidden headlights. There's a mirror-like polish on the two-piece bumpers, window trim, and rockers. While the exterior gives rare hints that this C2 is anything but stock, there are a few well integrated upgrades. After all, the polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels were just coming onto the market in 1964, and those redline tires are a cool/classic addition that coordinates with the paint.
The interior retains much of the classic style, but instantly gives the fresh feeling of a new build. The low-back bucket seats, carpeting, door panels, headliner, and dual cowl dash all have the impression like you turned back the clock to 1964. But while the feeling goes for vintage, they also made sure not to pass on the best in modern upgrades. That's why the radio is a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, and there's air conditioning blowing cold from R134a refrigerant. You have the classic-style wood-rimmed Corvette sports steering wheel, but beyond it, the crisp AutoMeter gauges shine brighter than even the factory units.
Under the hood is a 5.7-liter LS1 V8. It has been so expertly installed, it almost looks like they put this modern fuel-injected heart in on day one. Plus, the tidiness of ultra-low mileage and upgraded polished components mean you're going to love lifting the hood and showing off this modern powerhouse every time you park. But this one was also built to drive, and features like the aluminum radiator w/electric fan assure you of that. The motor fires up with the kind of readiness you can only get from a modern FI machine, and the upgraded four-speed automatic transmission delivers versatile gearing with overdrive comfort. You'll spot nice driving features like drilled & slotted front disc brakes, power steering, and a modern tread on those classic redline tires. And the freshness of the undercarriage not only shows you how comprehensive the restoration was, but also reminds you of the kind of confidence the in the driving experience that this restomod inspires.
Complete with service manuals, this is the freshly finished restomod that was made to take out on the road and even bring home a few trophies from your adventures. So when you want a cut-above classic that can do it all, don't miss this Sting Ray. Call now!
