According to the advertisement, the car was born as a father/daughter project in the mid-1990s. In 2010, the second owner commissioned Getz Hot Rod Innovations of Hampshire, Illinois, to refurbish and modify the car.
“Power is provided by a Chevrolet Corvette 5.7-liter V8 paired with a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission and a 3.55:1 Ford 8-inch rear end,” the dealership points out.
“The car wears fiberglass and metal body panels and features red bucket seats and carpets, Sanderson exhaust headers, dual radiators, Carrera coilovers, Wilwood brakes, and chrome suspension and steering components.
“The fiberglass body features aluminum hood sides and was refinished from white and blue to red and black with white accents during the 2010 project.
“Details include a billet aluminum grille and headlamp housings as well as a chrome roll bar, teardrop taillights, and a louvered rear deck lid. Red 15-Inch steel wheels wear chrome baby moon hubcaps and trim rings, and are mounted with grooved 5-inch-wide Firestone tires up front as well as 8.20-inch rubber out back.
“Braking is handled by Wilwood discs at each corner. Suspension is comprised of a drilled 46-inch VCW front beam axle, drop spindles, front and rear four-link setups, and Carrera coilovers.”
The car’s bucket seats have 4-point racing harnesses. Gauges include a Sunpro tach, and the horn and turn signal switches are mounted on the transmission tunnel.
The dealer says the 350cid V8 came from a 1986 Chevrolet Corvette and has triple 400cfm Rochester carburetors on an Edelbrock manifold. The advertisement includes a list of other components.
The car figures to be a showstopper wherever it is driven or displayed. Check your state’s DMV requirements to see if you actually can use that rear-mounted license-plate bracket.
The car is offered for $39,900.
