Take a lap through the 2023 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals with us after hours! The 2023 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show once again was jammed with unbelievable cars and displays. In this video, we take a walk-through the show after hours where the general public was not allowed to get up close in personal with many of the cars and feature exhibits. We cover the great “Who’s The Boss?” Ford display, the dual engine 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado, then we see the big bodied Buick display, cars from AMC and Pontiac and Chevrolet, special featured 1968 Ford Torino GT 428 Cobra Jet, Saleen Mustangs, and much more.
This 1968 Dodge Coronet 500 has had extensive metal work done to it, and before it goes to the body and paint shop, the team is test fitting all the trim to make sure it fits properly. This is an important step to ensure that the final product is everything the customer wants it to be.
The video shows the car in the fabrication shop, where it is completely media blasted and sprayed with a gray epoxy primer. Certain areas are bare steel where the team has been doing welding, panel gap fitment, and rust repair. However, the car is now at the point where the team wants to see how the trim fits before it goes to the body and paint shop.
This step is essential because it allows the team to identify any potential problems early on. For example, if a new or reproduction part doesn’t fit properly, the team can make the necessary adjustments before the car is painted. This saves time and money in the long run.
The 1968 Dodge Coronet 500 is a cool project car, and the team at V8 Speed and Resto Shop is excited to see it finished. The car has a 383 engine, 330 horsepower, and 425 foot-pounds of torque. It also has a fresh suspension. Everything on the car will be essentially brand new when it’s finished.
If you have a project car that you’re thinking about restoring or customizing, the team at V8 Speed and Resto Shop would be happy to chat with you!
This 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 XL rumbles thanks to a 460+ cubic inch 428 fed by two four barrel Holleys on top, and is shifted with a 4-speed manual transmission. The car came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some basic maintenance, as well as bodywork and a repaint . Follow the progress here!
We are thrilled to be working on the restoration of a very cool 1969 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Roadster. Our talented team has completed the bodywork, and we’ve just applied the first coats of primer. The next step? A stunning custom metallic blue paint job that will make this beauty truly shine! 🌟 Stay tuned for updates on this extraordinary project as we make this classic Corvette far nicer than it was when new.

This clean yellow 1966 Dodge Coronet convertible arrived at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop in need of some maintenance and TLC to make it a reliable and fun cruiser. It’s got a 383 under the hood, fed by a F.A.S.T. EFI system, and it spins an automatic transmission. The cool part is that this is a family heirloom car that has been passed to the current generation, and will always remain in the family. The owner’s parents had a ’66 Coronet like this one brand new, and recaptured those memories when they purchased this one a few years back. Today, their children and grandchildren are excited to enjoy the car and continue the legacy.

This 1967 Pontiac GTO came to the V8 Speed & Resto Shop ready to start a new life. We stripped the car, performed extensive metal repair with parts from OPGI, rebuilt and upgraded the chassis with parts from BMR Suspension, added disc brakes, and FiTech fuel injection to the 400 V8 engine. We reupholstered the complete interior and vinyl top in-house. The body was restored and painted in Tyrol blue, and the GTO scored top honors at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in Chicago on its first time out! Now this amazing GTO restomod is a show stopper with great driving manners!
