This clean 1964 Ford Falcon Futura came to the V8 Speed and Resto Shop looking for some performance upgrades, and we will be installing new front suspension components from Global West and QA1 Motorsports, a Borgeson steering gear, a Flaming River tilt steering column, and more in phase one.

This deep blue 1977 Chevrolet Corvette is in 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 Chevrolet Performance LS3 430 HP crate engine will fix all that, and the Tremec TKX is designed for high RPM shifting. It’s going to be a lot more fun when it’s finished!

2 Step Paint Correction and Ceramic Coating on 2700 Mile Corvette ZR-1 at V8 Speed and Resto Shop

This beautiful Hugger Orange 1969 Chevrolet Corvette came to the V8 Speed and Resto Shop barely breathing through the old carburetor and slipping gears with a slushy automatic transmission. The owner wants more, and we don’t blame him. The fix is in the form of a Holley Terminator X EFI system and a Tremec TKX 5-speed manual transmission.

1957 Studebaker Pro Touring Golden Hawk

This awesome 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk concept features a lowered stance on a performance chassis, modern supercharged power (an homage to the belt-driven supercharged V8 available when it was new), plus-sized Halibrand-style wheels, and a great retro-themed color scheme. Look closely at the gold in the fins… there’s a lot going on in there! This project, penned by designer Murray Komant, is one of many ideas brewing at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop. What’s on your mind? Maybe we can get Murray to visualize it, and the V8 Crew can build it!

The Pontiac GTO gets all the love, but the LeMans is also a great car in its own right. This great-looking 1966 LeMans is visiting the V8 Speed & Resto Shop for some upgrades and maintenance. We dig the red with black vinyl top, and the bucket seats, console with floor shifter, and sport wood steering wheel do a nice job of bridging the gap to Goat, and the Pontiac 400 V8 helps as well!

This unbelievable 1994 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 shows a mere 2700+ miles on the odometer, but nearly 30 years have dulled the shine on this LT5-powered jewel. The V8 Speed and Resto Shop team was tasked with a full show-car detail, including the underside, and topped it off with a paint correction and ceramic treatment for a super luxurious shine. You’ll be able to see this one in person at the 2022 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals Show in Chicago!
