Radical 1965 Corvette Road Racer Video Feature V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - This awesome 1965 Corvette built by the team at Performance Restorations in Mundelien, IL, was originally going to be a show car, but builder Brent Jarvis has been bitten by the road race bug. The result is a show quality car that sports a complete road race driveline and chassis, complete with a 900 horsepower all-aluminum big block Chevy engine, a clutchless 5-speed manual trans, huge brakes, and more. The cosmic paint scheme is old-school candy apple red over silver flake. Shot at the 2010 Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational event.

1965 Chevelle Engine Upgrades V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Our '65 Chevelle drove in on a low-performance
350 cubic inch Chevy replacement engine that was reported to have less than
10,000 miles on it. Initially, we contemplated doing a late-model EFI
swap on this car, but then we thought we'd take a look at what we had and
see what kind of shape it was in. Turns out that the 350 is a parts-store
type replacement engine with 4-bolt mains and a very clean bottom end.
The cast iron heads and cam were not very exciting, so we used the Dynomation engine simulation
software to whip up a new recipe. In this installment, we clean up the
engine, repaint the short block, and install a new Comp Cams Xtreme Energy
cam, lifters, timing set, new Holley performance aluminum cylinder heads, a
Weiand Action Plus intake manifold, an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, some
Flowtech headers, and a Holley 670 Street Avenger camshaft. Some of the
parts we already had like the MSD unit, the intake, and the carb, but the
cam and heads are new. Here's how it went.

good as it looks. Video from the 2009 Optima Ultimate Street Car
1965 Chevelle: Sprayable Polyester - V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - All the body filler on our 1965 Chevelle project
has been block-sanded straight, bringing the car one step closer to paint
application. The next step is to apply several coats of Standox Sprayable
Polyester .. a high-build sprayable body filler intended to fill any
pinholes or sanding scratches in the body filler layer below. Tiny
pinholes and sanding scratches can be barely detectable in filler, but they
become magnified under the shiny paint and clear coat of final paint, so
it's crucial to take whatever steps you can to eliminate them from the
car's surface before spraying paint. We applied several coats of the
Standox product, which leaves a highly textured surface when hardened,
which might appear to be a step backwards in the straightening process.
However, most of what you see here will all be block-sanded off, leaving a
solid white layer of perfectly smooth substrate ready for the final
application of primer before paint. When properly sanded, the poly leaves
no traces of pinholes or spreader marks, and it sands smoothly with minimal
effort. But you'll see the whole block sanding process in the next
chapter of our '65 Chevelle.

"Mr. Chevy" - A Period Perfect Gasser Chevy V8TV
http://www.v8tvshow.com - Vintage straight-axle cars, often known as
"Gassers", are popular wherever they go. Maybe it's the sky-high stance
or the cartoon-like appearance. Or perhaps it's the way these cars
transport you to a simpler time when racers would try just about anything
to go faster. Whatever it is,
these cars draw crowds of people because they look like nothing else on the
track. "Mr. Chevy" is a period-perfect example of a 1955 Chevy Hardtop
gasser raced from 1968 through 1976 where it was parked. Larry Frees knew
the original owner and rescued Mr. Chevy at an estate sale. Today, he
shares the car with enthusiasts wherever he goes.

1965 Corvette Competition Racer - Cool Cars, Hot Cars, Fast Cars
This here's a Corvette you don't see every day!

come by, but the owner of this car is piecing together it's history.

I've searched for information about this car. I bring it up in
conversations with GM aficionados. I've asked racing gurus if they've seen
one compete. I've looked for books and magazine articles. I've scoured the
internet for videos, photos, drawings, a story. I can't find so much as a
blurb about the split-nosed 1965 racer.
The only thing I can find (besides having stood next to - and photographing
this Corvette) are concepts like the 1959 Sting Ray and 1963 Mako - both of
which this car certainly resembles.
Was GM planning to put this body style into production? That seems
plausible if this car was put to the test on the track. We can only
Imagine dealership lots in the mid 60s, lined with Corvette 427s like the

On the other hand, it's just as cool that they are so rare.
