Here is a 1965 Corvette StingRay convertible with a fuel injected LS1 motor and a T5 transmission. The owner went to a lot of expense to� keep this car looking original inside and out. His objective was to have the classic look of an original C2 roadster but have a comfortable everyday driver that had the reliability and performance and good gas mileage of a modern Corvette. The transformation was begun in 2009 and completed in 2012 traveling just 13000 miles since the LS1 conversion. There was a lot of expensive custom fabrication in keeping the original look of the car...there is a five speed transmission but custom fabrication to keep the shifter offset like the original Muncie....look at the dash and you see original gauges but there is an� electronic tach conversion to function with the LS motor...original seats have heating elements mounted in them (hidden switches under the dash)...power door locks with hidden actuators. There is a Viper alarm system with an interior motion sensor for the alarm when you park with the top down.�The LS1 has been fully rebuilt and dynoed with over 300 hp reaching the rear wheels and uses Royal Purple 5w30 synthetic oil and gets 20+ miles per gallon on 87 octane gas...2.73 rear end from a 76 Vette 80 mph is 1900 RPM in 5th gear...clutch is hydraulic from Novak conversions...17x7 wheels with performance 225/50ZR17 tires...new fuel tank and high pressure FI fuel pump...vintage air...radio is an original style vertically mounted custom Autosound with MP3 and phone connection...all new wheel bearings...fully rebuilt front and rear suspension components with fiberglass rear leaf spring...CFR performance aluminum cross flow radiator...all new brake calipers and lines...new drive shaft and axle U joints...The convertible top is new (cloth from Stayfast).�It is obvious that no shortcuts were taken in building this car. It is a real Resto-Mod in the truest sense of the term. There are a few blemishes in the paint (see pics) but if you're going to use this car for its intended purpose as an everyday driver I wouldn't do a thing to it. All gauges work including the clock.
