V8 Speed & Resto Shop Restorations
The V8 Speed & Resto Shop is bringing 3 hot cars to the even 35th Anniversary Street Machine Nationals in DuQuoin, IL! Come check out the event and see the LT4 powered silver 1969 Camaro, the 5.0 Coyote 1972 Bronco, and the Big Block 1969 Chevelle in person. It's going to be an awesome weekend of horsepower, we'll be shooting some video for V8TV and hanging out with great people! Click the logo for more event info, and we'll see you there!
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.
