Lot #179 - The vehicle has an extensive 10-year restoration. The body was stripped down to bare metal and shot with Lizard Skin sound deadener followed by an $8,000 paint job in Corvette Monterey Red. The motor has been upgraded to an LS3 from a 2008 Corvette with less than 22,000 miles. The seats have been upgraded as well to period-correct style Corbeau seats and the headliner was modified to a newer OEM looking unit. The car also has been upgraded with nice set of analogue Dakota Digital gauges, new carpeting, weather stripping, dash pad and and custom leather covered console. It has a Painless wiring kit, aluminum 4-core radiator with electric fan and custom-fabricated headers. The undercarriage of the car has also been detailed with new brake lines, fuel lines as well custom dual exhaust with OEM catalytic converter in place. It has a baffled fuel tank with in-tank fuel pump. The original M21 Muncie 4-speed manual transmission has been rebuilt and a TVS Hotchkis suspension kit was installed. All of the brightwork has been replaced and it received a fresh set of Rally IIs. This car has less then 1,000 since completion.
