630HP Restomod 1965 Corvette Widebody

May 14th, 2022

Our boy Shawn (from Autotopia) has done it again. He located this crazy 1965 Chevy Corvette with a widened body (6-inches) sitting on a nearly stock chassis modified to accept a C4 front suspension. In the rear, we have an independent torque-arm design with a Dana 44 Trac Loc differential. The Forgeline wheels are 18-inch (12.5-inch rear, 11.5-inch front) This is a car that is equally suited for the dragstrip or the autocross course.

The engine is a Lingenfelter built LS7 7.0-liter all-aluminum dry sump V8 capable of producing 630hp. By the way, it’s naturally aspirated. The 3-inch exhaust system features Black Widow mufflers and Hedman shorty headers. The transmission is a Tremec Magnum 6-speed manual with a McLeod clutch. The brakes are Baer disc on both ends, and they are huge.

Time to get this baby on the streets and have a little fun!
