69 Corvette 427 Restoration Compilation (Part I)
Start to finish 'tribute' restoration of my fathers 69' L71 Corvette.
After he passed away in 11/05, I decided to take the challenge and restore
the vette. I jumped into it with no real prior experience, but with a lot
of research and asking questions it's finally finished.
My grandfather, my father's dad, 87yrs old, helped with the restoration as
well. You will see him in the video.
Thanks for watching.

1969 Corvette Coupe
We have receipts totaling more than $25,000 in performance modifications on
this car. The 2nd owner bought this car in 1987, and immediately began the
no expense spared build, which lasted for more than 13 years!!! She has
been driven sparingly over the years, and is still in wonderful condition.
Hi Performance 350 LT-1. He spent more than $7000 in 1988 dollars having
the motor built. The engine features Manley push rods, radiused valves and
titanium retainers. She has a SR-338-12 roller cam, with roller rockers and
hi output oil pump. She breaths through a Holley 750 cfm double pumper and
an Edelbrock intake manifold. The ignition is a full MSD system with built
in 5000 rpm rev limiter. No expense was spared in the build. The crank was
shot peened, and all parts magnifluxed. She was Dyno tuned and puts our more
than 445 horsepower. She exhales
through a gorgeous set of side pipes, and sounds like a NASCAR stocker.
The car was painted in 2000, in Dupont two-part M3467 medium metallic blue.
The paint job cost $8278 (in 2000 dollars!). She still remains in
absolutely stunning condition. The paint job is a 9.5 out of 10 (I never
give a 10)!!! The finish is mirror-like with great depth and shine; there
is no orange peel or hints of orange peel, and very few nicks or blemishes.
In 2000, the entire interior was removed. New leather seat covers were
installed, as well as new seat padding. In addition, new black carpets, a
new factory dash and a new headliner were installed. Very few miles were
put on this show car, and the interior remains in excellent condition.
The 4- speed manual transmission takes its drive through a Centerforce
clutch and a 3:90 Posi rear end with Richmond street gears. The entire
brake system was replaced, including new master cylinder, calipers, pads
rotors, Booster and lines. The
suspension is also in great condition, with fresh bushings and shocks. The
steering is tights, and she stops as well as she goes.
The chrome and all rubber were replaced in 2000, and still in excellent
condition. She has new tires, and the 15 inch replacement wheels, caps and
trim rings are excellent. The pop-up headlights work well, as do the
windshield wipers and all vacuum systems. All badging was replaced. She has
a big block hood.
WE HAVE FULL AND EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTATION ON THIS 20 YEAR BUILD. Used mostly
as a show car, she has done very few miles over the years, and is still in
wonderful cosmetic and mechanical condition.

1976 Corvette Vettepack side pipe inserts - Thumpr cam
Classic Chambered Exhaust made a set
of vettepack inserts for me based on the ones they make for the C2
corvettes. Sound is incredible. A little quieter than the Hooker Max Flow
inserts but far better tone. Highway driving at 70 is a nice purr not
obnoxious at all.
