Incredible Top Dollar 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Resto-Mod
The Chevrolet Corvette (C2), also known as the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, is the second generation of the Chevrolet Corvette sports car, produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1963 to 1967 model years.
The 1967 Corvette Stingray was the last Corvette of the second generation, and five years of refinements made it the best of the line. Changes were again modest with 5 smaller front fender vents which replaced the three larger ones, and flat-finish rockers sans ribbing.
The ultimate Corvette engine for 1967 was 427 cubic inch and was coded L88 and was as close to a pure racing engine as Chevy had ever offered in regular production. Although the factory advertised L88 rating was 430 bhp at 4600 rpm, the true rating was said to be about 560 bhp at 6400 rpm. The very high compression ratio required 103-octane racing fuel, which was available only at select service stations. Clearly this was not an engine for the casual motorist. The 1967 Corvette Resto-Mod we have here at Skyway Classics, is even wilder!
If you have never heard of a “Resto-Mod”, it is when "you take an old car and modernize it with an updated engine, suspension, brakes, tires and electronics. Various reasons for performing resto-modifications on vintage cars may include the owner's desire to have either modern conveniences, improvements in vehicle safety or reliability, and/or improvements in street or track-driving performance.
Resto-modifications for modern convenience and safety may include adding features such as air conditioning, power windows, power steering, power brakes, seatbelts, or radio/stereo systems that may have not come installed on a vehicle at the time it was originally produced.
Features & Options
And that is exactly what our 1967 Corvette Resto-Mod is all about. This Corvette has undergone an all-inclusive change-over into the beast it is today. It has had a total frame-off Rotisserie Restoration starting with a no Hit Body over a Custom Street Shop Chassis. The Corvette is painted with a stunning Custom DuPont Black Onyx and Clear Paint job.
The body also has a Power Hood and Antenna, new Air Conditioning and Heat, and new Stainless Trim and Bumpers. The interior features a $20,000 sound system with voice activation, custom dash with hideaway navigation and bluetooth, a new Al Knoch leather interior with headrests, power windows, a Flaming River tilt steering column, and a voice activation dashboard all of which was pro built.
The chassis is constructed with a polished C-6 suspension front and rear, adjustable shocks front and rear, front & rear sway bar, 6 piston brakes all around with gun drilled rotors with its rolling stock of super fat performance tires on Corvette Grand Sport Wheels.
The centerpiece of this Corvette is it's power plant, a LS3 525 hp V8 Vette Engine Tuned to over 600hp! It is shifted by a TKO 600 5-Speed Tremec Transmission w/ 6 to 1 Overdrive, with all that power going to a Viper center section & differential with 3.32 gear ratio.
The engine gets its air from a Custom SW Custom Ram Intake and pumps the exhaust gasses out of a set of custom factory looking side exhausts.
We cannot think of any better car to make into a Resto-Mod than the 1967 Corvette we have here at Skyway Classics. This one is top of the line and you must come see and hear this beauty. You will be a believer!
