1965 Chevy Corvette Stingray Roadster with Fuel Injected LS1 engine and T5 transmission. Custom matte clear coat GM storm gray paint (perfect condition).
Custom restomod C2 Corvette and a reliable daily driver with modern LSX motor getting 20+mpg on 87 octane, power door locks, heated seats, awesome MP3 stereo, cold AC, heated defrost, and a 5-speed transmission. Owned since 2008, but growing family and no room for the extra car in the new house.
If interested, call Ohio Corvettes and Muscle Cars at 330-499-8555. The car is located in North Canton, Ohio (just south of Cleveland).
A lot of time and money was spent to not cut up the original C2 appearance: e.g. five speed transmission but completed a lot of custom fabrication to keep the shifter offset like original Muncie; original gauges but electronic tach conversion to function with LS motor; heated original seats; power door locks but hidden actuators. This is not a cheap resto mod Corvette C2 LS conversion with a “custom” cut up dash and console or Autometer gauges. Matte clear coat paint was just completed and the car looks flawless.
Here are some details on the conversion and upgrades:
-LS1 pullout and professional rebuild with Mid-range 5.3L Comp Cam: 218/220 duration; 114 degrees lobe separation
-Headers custom welded into original C2 side exhaust
-Engine/car dyno tuned by Vengeance Racing, Cumming, GA (87 octane pump gas)—I have some tuning videos and dyno results sheet to go with the car
-fully built T5 world class five speed transmission
-Hydraulic clutch system from Novak conversions
-Matte black Ridler Style 695 17” x 7” wheels with N7000+ performance 225x50x17 tires
-Brand new Robbins Stayfast convertible top; convertible frame re-aligned and re-welded at weak points (all work by Ace Custom Upholstery)
-Viper alarm system with keyless entry (all hidden actuators work with remote)
-Vintage Air air-conditioning with heated AC-defrost system
-Heated seat elements mounted into original seats (hidden switches under dash)
-Original C2 style Custom Autosound radio but fully electronic with MP3/phone connection, amps, hidden speakers in rear and under dash, baby sub in cargo rear
-Custom electronic conversion of original tach; Dakota Digital control box
-Custom center console arm rest with cup holder (1967 Vette style)
-Compass/thermometer display mounted in passenger foot-well area (but can be easily removed if you don’t like the appearance)
Everything on the car functions fine and the paint is perfect.
