Everything you see and touch tells your brain it's a well-restored
classic from the 1960s. But the moment you twist the key, there's a
whole new sensation of power. This 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod
is an awesome supercharged 'Vette that also has the transmission
and suspension upgrades to really deliver a pure power driving
This Sting Ray doesn't like to give too many hints at the modern
upgrades beneath the skin. But it also doesn't like to stay quiet
either. That's why the first impression is just about a superbly
restored car. Red is a great Corvette color, but this one can't
help but grab some extra attention over the rest. After all, they
laid down a silver base coat before the Candy Apple Red went on
top, and there were three coats of clearcoat that went on next.
This careful and professional application yielded a vivid color
with an ideal sparkle, and the finish looks miles deep. And with
paint like this, the chrome has to be upgraded, too. After all,
nothing fills you with more pride than seeing the curves of your
Sting Ray reflected in the mirror-like bumpers. Plus, you have all
the best C2 Stingray performance features, like the Stinger hood,
sport wheels with knock-off hubs, and side pipes. So even when
parked, this one gives off a sharp and sparkling impression you get
from the most carefully restored classics.
Since the exterior is red with white accents, it's great to see
that color theme continued inside. And also, just like the outside,
the interior is also about appearing period-correct with subtle
upgrades. You'll be impressed with the feel of the white leather
seats, smooth dash, and plush carpeting. The wood-rimmed sports
steering wheel feels terrifically grippy in your hands. Beyond
that, you'll see that all the correct instruments are in place. Not
only do they look good with the shiny bezels, but more importantly,
everything works - even the clock! The radio is a classic Delco
AM/FM unit, the power window controls are correct, and the Vintage
Air R134a air conditioning blows out of the factory-style setup.
But there are a few upgrades that took a little more effort to
hide. There's a boost gauge in the glovebox, and have you counted
the gears on the shift pattern yet?
While the interior and exterior are stealth about the performance
upgrades, the engine bay cannot hide its beastly nature. This is a
383 cubic-inch stroker V8 built with forged components by Scotty's
Machine Shop. Not only is this strong, but it also has go-fast
goodies, like a Demon 750 double-pumper four-barrel carburetor,
Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake, and a programmable MSD 6AL-2
programmable ignition. And while that's usually plenty of
performance for most people, this one really steps it up a notch
with a Procharger D1SC supercharger. You harness this enhanced
powerhouse by the control of a Tremec T5 five-speed manual
transmission with dual disc clutch. It's a serious power package
that makes a sweet high octane soundtrack from those side pipes.
And when you really want to being the thunder, there's a switch in
the glovebox for straight pipe exhaust cutouts. When you look
underneath the car, you see a clean setup and a powder coated
frame. You'll also notice that the Sting Ray's fully independent
suspension has been fully upgraded to Van Steel components. This
includes tubular arms up front and a more advanced six-link rear.
QA1 adjustable coilovers, hydroboost SBC four-wheel disc brakes,
and power steering complete a terrific package that puts this
supercharged Corvette easily under your control.
