This deep blue 1977 Chevrolet Corvette came to the V8 Speed and Resto Shop for a new driveline including an LS3 V8, a Tremec TKX 5-Speed manual transmission, and more. These Corvettes look cool and handle well, but the often anaemic, low-compression “smog motors” from the mid 1970s leave much to be desired in the performance department. The V8 Speed and Resto Shop installed a Chevrolet Performance LS3 430 HP crate engine and the Tremec TKX 5-Speed transmission from Modern Driveline designed for high RPM shifting. Dakota Digital RTX gauges provide the driver with the vitals without looking like an add-on. Other suspension upgrades, new wheels, tires, and brakes, sidepipes, and a complete interior restoration by V8 Speed and Resto all add up to a great looking and performing Corvette. If you didn’t think you were a fan of mid 1970’s Corvettes… you are now!
Revving their engines in a battle for supremacy, the Shelby Cobra and the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette stand as legendary icons of automotive performance. On one side, the Shelby Cobra, a snarling beast born to conquer the tracks. Its lightweight frame, monstrous 427 Ford power, and thunderous roar make it a force to be reckoned with. Every stomp of the throttle sends shivers down the spine, propelling you into an adrenaline-fueled frenzy. On the other side, the Chevrolet Corvette, a sleek and powerful machine that balances elegance and brute strength. Its refined engineering, superb handling for the day, and iconic style create a harmonious symphony of performance. It grips the road like a predator, delivering thrills with every corner conquered. Both titans offer a smile-inducing driving experience, leaving you craving more. So, which would you choose in this battle of performance legends?

The Prep before the Paint. Today Jeff is preparing this slick 1969 Chevrolet Corvette roadster for Spies Hecker HS Primer Surfacer to complete the body tub. This will allow for a nice even surface to be wet sanded to ensure the paint is as smooth as glass. It’s all in the details! See more of this car: https://v8speedshop.com/1969-chevrolet-corvette-jl/
