1965 Corvette Stingray– One of a kind, Corvette Magazine featured Restomod

Meticulously owner built, Corvette Stingray streetcar utilizing the finest engine, suspension, brakes and transmission components money can buy. A new all aluminum Donovan 515 cubic inch big block was the foundation for the old school muscle, naturally aspirated, everything fits under a stock hood with parts of USA origin and manufacture. Dyno verified 700hp at the crank and runs 10.86 at the ¼ mile on 9” drag radials. The car is fast and beautiful.

Was featured in a 5 page spread in Corvette Magazine in October 2013.

This is not just a show car.It was owner drivenfor a pass at the track to demonstrate its capabilities. No nitrous, no power shifting. An easy pass yielded a 10 second slip and then promptly retired from the race track.

The heart and soul of the car is a hand built precisely blueprinted and balanced Donovan big block. Kathy Donovan still runs Ed Donovan Engineering who built top fuel aluminum blocks in the 60's. She was kind enough to oversee the casting and delivery of this special project block.

The car won a local Cars & Coffee dyno event at the Creative Workshop in Hollywood Florida and still stands as one of the most powerful naturally aspirated, pump gas street cars ever on their dyno.

The original born with matching numbers engine and transmission are included with the sale in well preserved condition. It is an L79, 327/350hp and M-21 4 speed. The differential case is original as well. Minimal dressing up and it would make a nice display item.
