Gateway Classic Cars of Saint Louis is proud to offer a very unique
1979 Pro Street Chevrolet Corvette that has been built for the
street, the strip, and as a show car. You catch this Corvette out
and about at some car shows usually with a crowd gathering around
and gawking at how extreme this build is. Under the hood rests a
BBC 511cid V8 that is pumping out over 700 horsepower. This engine
has been a no expense spared build that includes Diamond Racing
Pistons, Dart Intake, Holley Dominator 1050 Carburetor, Air Motive
Fuel System, custom fabricated Radiator for better cooling and much
more. This engine is exhaling through a pair of Hooker Super
Competition Headers with a Ceramic Coated Flowmaster Exhaust System
which sounds amazing! All of this power is paired with a TCI Full
Manual Turbo 400 Trans with a TCI 4000 Stall Converter. The tires
spin through a narrowed Moser 33-Spline Axles with a 4.56 gear.
Full Alston 4-link suspension with QA1 coil overs keep this beauty
in a straight line while you stomp on the gas pedal. This beauty
has had extensive chassis reinforcement to make sure that this
gorgeous Corvette translates power to the ground appropriately.
Stopping power comes courtesy Aerospace Component Billet disc
brakes tucked behind Centerline Wheels wrapped in some sticky
Mickey Thompson tires. The paint on this Corvette is of high
quality. Every bit of this Corvette has been modified with parts
you cannot just buy off a shelf at your local auto parts store.
This Corvette would take nearly 6 figures to replicate and has many
trophies to prove that it is one of a kind. To view this 1979 Pro
Street Corvette in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD
video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our St. Louis Showroom.
