Car was completed in October 2006. The car has less than 7,000 miles since completion. 3,300 came from completing Hot Rod Power Tour 2007. This car cost 6 figures to build. Suspension: Martz front sub-frame with rack & pinion steering, coilover fully adjustable front and Steve spoon rear suspension. Custom Ford 9" rear with torque arm connecting to the transmission cross member. Full custom-welded frame. Brakes: 4-wheel disc brakes with Hydro Boost. Huge rear 235 40 17 tires on a 10" rim. Tubbed wheel wells. This combination insures short stops and lots of traction. Engine/transmission: Engine is a custom re-sleeved and reliable LS2 Stroker. This engine starts life as an engine that came out of a newer Corvette. The all aluminum engine is re-sleeved, stroked and bored to achieve 427cid. The entire engine is completely modified with all of the best parts available. The compression is around 12.00 to 1 compression and runs on pump gas. Puts out around 635hp and a torque curve that is unheard of. It is Fuel Injected and runs by a custom-tuned computer. The car is chassis dyno-tuned for all out performance and registered 555hp at the rear wheels. The engine is all natural. No nitros, blower or turbo. 0 to 60 faster than anything made in the 60's and you don't have to turn on any bottle or wait for a Turbo or Super-charger to build power. 6-speed transmission (T-56) custom-built to handle 900 foot pounds of torque. Custom built spec clutch with a hydraulic set up. No cables here. Interior: The interior starts with sound and heat proofing. Then we installed a custom sound system. The car has complete wire harness, front to back. New glass, full roll bars with swing outs for ease to get in and out. Monaco Leather seats (Porsche seat), Covan Custom dash and Ultralite gauges for everything from oil temp to fuel pressure. Aftermarket heat and air conditioning that really works.

Body/Paint: Of course all new sheet metal and custom paint, 50th Anniversary Corvette red with gold flake ghost Z28 stripes. Enough clear coats to shine like any show car could. They will hear you coming with the custom exhaust that has dual electric cutouts that are fully opened or closed in 6 seconds with a touch of a button.
