V8 Speed & Resto Shop Restorations
This sweet 1969 Corvette roadster arrived in the V8 Speed & Resto Shop in Red Bud, Illinois, in need of some upgraded power and added fun! The original engine was long gone, so the customer did not have much of a "guilt" factor for changing the car, so modern Corvette power was chosen to boost the fun! The crew of the V8 Speed & Resto Shop routinely performs everything from maintenance on old cars to complete restorations and modern engine conversions, so they were well equipped to replace the anemic 350 in favor of a modern 485 HP Chevrolet LS3 V8. They backed the LS3 with a Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed manual gearbox from Modern Driveline, which required many modifications to the clutch, console, and transmission tunnel.
