Lot #1325 - Under the E-type hinged bonnet you'll find an all-aluminum Corvette LS3 fresh from the crate. This is paired with a new Corvette 4-speed automatic overdrive. The fuel lines are handcrafted to work with a billet fuel pump and a modified gas tank for fuel injection. It has disc brakes in four corners with cross-drilled slotted rotors and polished aluminum calipers, anti-sway bars front and rear with stainless-steel brake lines and power-assisted rack & pinion steering. It also features handmade and custom-fitted stainless tilt column, power windows and custom leather interior, as well as a modern sound system with XM/DVD/CD/AM/FM. The wiring has been completely replaced with a modern fuse panel. A high-capacity aluminum radiator has been fabricated especially for this engine/chassis combination. The car rides on wire wheels that have been custom-made to specific-width diameter, and rear spacing and are fitted with red line "Z-Rated" high-performance radials. This E-type offers the highly desirable mechanical improvements, yet retains the original design's most stylistic features.
