AWESOME RESTOMOD, FUEL INJECTED LT4, SSBC DISC BRAKES, COLD R134 AC, VERY CLEAN

Everything you see and touch tells your brain it's from the 1960s. But the rumble from the V8 and the slick performance sends some very different and modern signals. That's exactly what this 1964 Chevrolet Corvette feels like going down the road, and that's exactly what you want out of a high-quality restomod.

This Sting Ray gives very few hints at the modern car that lies beneath the surface. Instead it just looks like nicely restored 'Vette. This satisfying appearance starts with a professional respray of the factory Ermine White. It looks bright and deep like a modern clearcoat paint should. The trim is complete, which is something you love to see because these early C2s had some intricate details – everything from the thin stylized bumpers, to the Corvette name in cursive on the rear. It has the stinger hood with black accents, and since this wasn't a '64 option, it's one of your few cues that there has been some heavy investment in tearing up the streets. The other exterior custom touch is the set of ARE torque thrust wheels. These are a timelessly tasteful add-on, and few people realize it helps house the larger 17-inch tires. None of this gets in the way of the core feeling that the Sting Ray was one of the most influential designs of the decade, and even over fifty years later, it remains instantly recognizable and still resonates with enthusiasts.

The interior is also about appearing original with subtle upgrades. It starts with black vinyl bucket seats that looks so new they should be wrapped in plastic. Beyond the three-spoke word-rimed steering wheel, you'll see that all the correct instruments are in place. Not only do they look good with the shiny bezels, but more importantly, everything works – even the clock! If these bright elements have your eye, then you might start to spot a few of the new pieces. The radio is now a JVC AM/FM/cassette player that's adaptable for more modern tunes. Plus, there are those bright vents under the dash that pump out the ice-cold air conditioning running modern R-134a.

But any thoughts that this Corvette is running anything close to stock is completely blown away the moment you pop the hood. That's a Corvette motor, but it's an LT4 variety that would have come in the 1996 Grand Sport. So the fuel-injected callouts on the fenders of this coupe aren't liars, they are just correct in a very unique way. As much as you know this is a more modern V8, it still looks at home in the engine bay - especially with the classic '60s-style shine on the valve covers and Hooker performance headers. But beyond just looking great, it has the reliability of a more modern motor backed up by an electric fan, new wires, new belts, and steel braided hoses. It makes for a performance package that growls like a good Corvette should, but it has a distinctly more mature and even tone that tells you this one is powered by something special. For true restomod status you need more than just an updated engine. The fully independent suspension has been updated with more modern performance components, including an SSBC Force 10 four-wheel disc brake package. To make sure this can be enjoyed to the fullest on the backroads, you have complete control with a four-speed manual transmission, and a versatile 3.70 rear end with Positraction. Capping it all off are a set of grippy BE Goodrich gForce tires.

The well-done Corvette restomods are a fun topic at the car show, and this one will put you in the center of all the action. Of course, you have to stop enjoying Sunday drives in this upgraded 'Vette long enough to stop at the show first. You know this is a tempting and unique C2, and you're not the only one who thinks that way. Call today!!!
