1965 Chevrolet Corvette LS3 Restomod Additional Info:

This 1965 Chevrolet Corvette keeps the iconic C2 silhouette, but it has the modern 425+ hp LS3 engine. Plus, take the time to look over the custom paint, upgraded interior, and performance suspension. So once you realize how amazing this build is, make room in your trophy case. Even from just a quick glance everyone will know this Sting Ray is special. The deep blue paint takes advantage of the most modern clearcoat practices so you get a...deep sparkle that's also so slippery you'll swear it was applied with baby oil. And there's sliver metallic undertone that not only looks great when the sunshine hits it, but it's also the ideal match for the silver paint on the Stinger hood. The final touch is a solid investment in the body to make sure this Sting Ray is looking crisp. Paint and bodywork with this much distinction also means that any brightwork has to be a stand out to really get noticed. That's why it all has a mirror shine - everything from the thin stylized bumpers, to the rocker panels, to the Corvette name in cursive on the rear. But even if that all escapes everyone's glances, the 17-inch Foose wheels are shining gems that provide a window into this classic's modern soul. Just like the exterior, the interior is unmistakably based on a C2 with a ton invested in giving it a fresh feeling and modern attractiveness. You see great classic elements like the dual cowl dash and center console with seatbelt holders. But there's also a ton of modern upgrades. As expected from a full custom build, it comes loaded with features such as R134a air conditioning, high-back leather sport seats, and a modern AM/FM stereo with iPod hookup. Plus, when you slip behind the Billet Specialties three-spoke steering wheel, you'll notice the full Dakota Digital gauge package that glows as blue as the exterior to keep this custom design truly uniform. Under the hood is a modern 6.2-liter LS3 motor producing 425+ horsepower. It's been so expertly installed, it almost looks like they put this modern heart in on day one. So the fuel-injected callouts on the fenders of this coupe aren't liars; they are just correct in a very unique way. While you'll love this modern power, its upgraded support components (including an aluminum radiator and electric fan) also mean you can even idle in traffic without worrying. For true restomod status you need more than just an updated engine. The fully independent suspension has been upgraded with more modern performance components, including QA1 adjustable shocks and a versatile 3.36 rear end with Positraction. Plus, to make sure this can be enjoyed to the fullest on the backroads, you have complete control with a strong Tremec TKO500 five-speed manual transmission. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the modern grip of BG Goodrich gForce tires, and this is truly the ultimate Sting Ray. The sale comes with the owner's manual and protect-o-plate. Plus, the car's original 327 motor, four-speed, and seats are also available for those who want a more vintage experience. Well-done Corvette restomods are a fun topic at the car show, and this one will immediately put you in the center of all the action. Call today!!!
