Vehicle Description

We've featured some amazing Corvette pro-tourers over the past few years. And this LS-powered Sting Ray is the latest in a long line of metal that seems to come in, spend one week being universally admired, and disappear to a new home. By definition, pro-touring resto-mods are virtually irresistible because they combine everything great about modern performance with everything loved in vintage style. And who doesn't enjoy cruising a classic that mixes the best attributes of old school Detroit muscle with the killer performance of modern American icons? As a national award winning custom that delivers on every level, this sweet Chevy is the kind of car you simply CAN'T ignore. It wraps a spry Street Shop chassis, a tough Tremec 5-speed and 6.2 liters of hot LS small block in a tasteful restoration which oozes the kind of style that made second-generation Corvettes the stuff of legend. Looking for an impressive classic that'll fare well on the road AND at the show? Check out this awesome Chevy!

YELLOW, DONE RIGHT!

The pride and joy of an avid collector who has restored over 10 classics, this C2 benefitted from a detailed, ground-up restoration that earned it a Blue Ribbon Award in NCRS Concours Stock Division judging. That build, a five year affair that transformed the car from a solid driver to a brutal pro-touring resto-mod, married a fully stripped body with a carefully modified floorpan. A killer coat of bright Sunfire Yellow two-stage put the icing on the cake. And today, lean, mean, timeless and classy, this sweet Sting Ray rolls as a spectacular piece of iconic American muscle that's detailed to better-than-new standards.

Aggressive styling wrapped in aggressive paint is one thing. But, for this Vette to be completely over-the-top, the restorers added a full roster of fresh, handpicked details. At the front of the car, polished bumpers center a stainless-trimmed grille between small parking lamps. Behind those lamps, a stylish Stinger Hood plants a glossy stripe between crossed flags and bold "427" emblems. That badging boosts ego through pristine glass that's seated in polished frames and cleared by polished wipers. At the edges of those blades, a louvered profile floats polished handles and a familiar bowtie mirror above color-keyed rockers and rowdy side-pipes. And at the back of the car, two more polished bumpers reflect a yellow fuel filler, a polished tag pocket and sporty taillights.

FIVE-TWENTY-FIVE

Professionally installed by the experts at Athens, Alabama's Street Shop Inc., this Vette's divine GM small block, officially known as the Chevrolet Performance LS376/525, twists respectable 10.7 to 1 compression into 525 horsepower and 486 lb./ft. of torque! At the top of the block, a tidy Vibrant Performance air tube funnels wind in to a proven GM throttle body, which fronts a lightweight GM intake. That air meets spark in rectangular-port L92-style heads, which ride under a billet-tinged AVS Motorsports Speedcover that, by itself, rang up to a cool $1,000. A nodular crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons compress that volatile union. A racing-inspired ASA cam maximizes intake efficiency through better breathing. Speaking of breathing, that smooth valvetrain funnels spent gases through short, stainless headers. There's a proven DeWitts radiator that's slid in front of dual SPAL puller fans. And, as you likely deduced from our high-resolution photos, the all-aluminum mill is complemented with niceties like braided fluid lines, a polished expansion tank and quality AC Delco plug wires.

GO LIKE NEW!

Park this Sting Ray on a lift and you'll find a first class Street Shop chassis that, like the car's drivetrain, was installed by the pros of the same name. Those boxed bones ride a fully independent sixth-generation Corvette suspension that's finished with adjustable QA-1 coil-overs. Behind the stout small block, a tough Tremec TKO600 5-speed twists power to a requisite Dana 44 that's packed with a limited-slip differential and sporty, 3.50 gears. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Smooth and solid stops are provided by C6-spec Brembo calipers, which utilize a Wilwood master cylinder and trusty Hydratech hydroboost to squeeze a quartet of C6 rotors. And custom CCW wheels, which spin quality Michelin Pilot Sports, are a nice finishing touch to the car's aggressive stance.

SIMPLE IS GOOD

Slip in to this coupe's delightfully traditional cockpit and settle on firm bucket seats that are wrapped in smooth leather upholstery. A dual-cowl dash founds crisp factory telemetry beside controls for Vintage Air conditioning and upgraded AM/FM audio. A shallow console traces a tasteful shifter. And in front of the driver, a stylish Chevrolet steering wheel laps a tilting column.

Who doesn't want a 1967 Corvette that's better than new in virtually every way? Thanks to its fresh restoration, this vivid coupe retains authentic Motor City feel while adding modern components to an already awesome ownership experience. If you're in the market for a storied classic that's fully detailed and ready to hit the road, welcome to the Chevrolet family!
