This radical 1971 Chevrolet Corvette 427 Custom is the ultimate G-machine. It was inspired by the well-known and respected “Owens-Corning L88”. This car was the product of a nut and bolt comprehensive restoration. Since completion only 700 test miles have been logged. The body enhancements include the hood, front nose, rear quarters and rear end. The body work was done to very high standards by Mid-America Industries. It was painted PPG 2016 Daytona Sunrise Orange with “Owens- Corning L88” style black stripes by Radley Chevrolet. The paint quality is truly remarkable and the color is beautiful. It’s equipped with removable T-Top roof panels that were painted to match. The front tinted windshield is new and a custom painted cowl panel was wrapped around the working wipers. The dual front headlights and fiberglass front bumper look stunning. The front window trim, dual mirrors, door handles, front grille, side vents, lower molding and emblems were painted black. The T-Top bar, corners of windshield and hood pin plates were wrapped in carbon fiber. The car sits on new Team III ET wheels that are 18 X10 on the front and 18 X12 on the rear. The wheels are wrapped with sticky BF Goodrich G-Force Rival tires that are 275-35-18 on the front and 335-30-18 on the rear. The all new black interior looks great and is all business. Everything in the interior was restored or replaced such as the wiring, dash pad, door panels and carpeting. The dash, custom panels and custom console were wrapped with carbon fiber. Some of the interior upgrades include a 4-point roll bar, black billet rear view mirror, Auto Meter Pro-Comp gauges, custom switches, Ididit tilt steering column, Ididit steering wheel, Corbeau bucket seats, JEGS racing style seat belts, black billet lightening shifter, Vintage Air conditioning and carpeted Corvette floor mats. The engine compartment is highly detailed and home to the fuel injected Blue Print LS3 427 V8 w/ 618HP. The engine dyno sheet is included. It’s equipped with a Holley accessory drive system, fuel pump and alternator. The engine has been dressed with custom painted valve covers that have carbon fiber letter inserts. The engine runs and sounds excellent out the Stahl stepped headers with 3 ½ side pipes that have Sweet Thunder free flowing inserts. The engine is cooled by a Dewitts high performance aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The engine is coupled to a Tremec TKO-600 5-speed manual transmission and the Street Slayer Ceramix hydraulic clutch which were both supplied by American Powertrain. The power is transferred to the pavement through the built Dana 44 rear end with 4:10 gears. The power rack and pinion steering unit operates precisely. The undercarriage is very detailed with many custom features throughout. The body sits on a custom chassis built by Mid America Industries. The car is equipped with a new C4 suspension system with Aldan coil overs in the front and Bilstein shocks with competition mono leaf springs in the rear. The braking system consists of power four wheel disc brakes with a CPP master cylinder, C4 Corvette calipers and Pro Tech slotted rotors. It has a Fuel Safe 22 gallon fuel cell and Optima red top battery. This car leaves people speechless. This car has recently been serviced and detailed which is documented with an invoice that is included.
