Original description of Mulgari Automotive:
- Good afternoon followers. After a long time coming, we finally have the 1964 Corvette Stingray prepared & sitting pretty in our club lounge.
With restored second generation Corvettes being highly desirable collectables in factory-correct condition, it takes quite a bit of nerve to pull the gloves off and 'frankenstein' a killer pro-tourer. But, as you'll see, the results are definitely worth the six-figures it required to finish this amazing car, as few C2s possess its combination of sheer performance and classic style. Sealed in brilliant PPG Atomic Orange two-stage, this slick Corvette pro-tourer is the beneficiary of an extensive, ground-up restoration that was completed by Classic Car Garage in Greenville, Michigan. In addition to better-than-factory alignment, the car's body features super sinuous appeal thanks to GTS Customs quarters that flare one inch over stock. That body's combination of form, fit and flash was reinforced by fully shaved emblems and high-gloss clear which, during the finishing phase, was sanded to a wet-look shine. At the front of this fully-sorted coupe, a stainless, body-width grille is caged behind chrome-trimmed parking lamps and a traditional 'razor blade' bumper. Above that grille, a '66 -exclusive, big block hood features bright stainless heat extractors. Behind that hood, mirrored wipers, fresh stainless trim and a chrome bowtie mirror shape smoked greenhouse glass. Below that glass, C6 Z06-style side scoops ride between chrome door handles, Z06 fender scripts and 3-inch Sweet Thunder side pipes. And behind those pipes, a modified deck lid hangs a classy fuel filler and small power antenna above traditional tail lamps and two more 'razor blade' bumpers. Like its Atomic Orange paint, this Corvette's engine highlights classic Chevy design with a virtual lifetime of technological improvement. Twisting 505 SAE-certified horsepower into a massive 470 lb./ft. of tire-shredding torque, the lightweight LS7 rumbling beneath the car's hood is a 21st century testament to the bowtie division's enduring small block V8. Founded in GM's very successful Corvette racing program, the brutal mill utilizes a forged crank, titanium rods and hypereutectic pistons to flat out whip pretty much anything with four wheels. A perfect amount of oxygen flows from reusable K&N filter elements through a chrome, twin-flow air tube to a familiar GM throttle body. That wind mixes with fuel in a professionally-painted intake and progresses to CNC-ported cylinder heads that are built with lightweight titanium valves. Immediately following, spent gases roar through the aforementioned combustion side pipes via modified and Ceramakrome-coated exhaust manifolds. Charge comes courtesy of a chrome alternator that, like the car's chrome AC compressor, spins on a high quality March accessory drive. Drive-by-wire communication is facilitated by a Street & Performance computer harness. Items like a DeWitts aluminum radiator, custom dry-sump lubrication, Taylor Thundervolt plug wires and SPAL electric puller fans ensure rocket-like acceleration. And Billet Specialties coil covers, a Wilwood master cylinder, stainless AN fluid lines, and custom billet fuel rail covers enhance traditionally conservative aesthetics. This Vette's spry LS7 is, first and foremost, augmented by a powdercoated SRIII Motorsports tube chassis that's much more rigid than vintage factory fodder. At the center of that chassis, a fresh Tremec TKO600 5-speed makes good use of carbon fiber synchros, a hydraulic throwout bearing and a modern Z06 clutch. When that clutch grabs, a custom aluminum driveshaft jerks a 1.5-inch narrowed Dana 44 that's seated in a powdercoated fourth generation Corvette suspension and adjustable QA1 coil-overs. Turns come courtesy of modern power rack and pinion steering. Smooth and solid stops are provided by a HydraBoosted brake system that squeezes C5 front calipers, and C4 rear calipers, around drilled and slotted EradiSpeed rotors. Power flows through mirrored C6 Z06 wheels, which spin 245 / 45R17 Firestone Firehawk Wide Ovals in front of 275 / 40R18 Firestone Firehawk Wide Ovals. And everything, from this Corvette's custom sway bars and color-keyed undercoating to its Rock Valley fuel tank and Walbro fuel pump, is expertly finished, superbly detailed and ready for action. Behind the car's lightweight doors, a Cadillac Cocoa ultraleather interior rides on proven Lizard Skin sound control. Seating comes courtesy of heated, power-adjusted sixth generation Corvette buckets which are anchored in professionally lowered boxes. From the driver's perch, an ultraleather-wrapped dash hangs Dakota Digital VHX gauges next to Bluetooth capable, Sirius XM-compatible audio and Dakota Digital controls for a Vintage Air climate system. Beneath that dash, Cadillac Cocoa carpet frames a cup holder-equipped console that's complete with a traditional shifter and small power window switches. Opposite that console, ultraleather side panels hang traditional door handles and billet window cranks in front of fob-activated door locks. Above those panels, a custom ultraleather headliner frames color-keyed sun visors. In front of the driver, a polished and leather-wrapped steering wheel spins a brilliant cross-flag emblem around modern cruise control and a convenient, tilting column.
This Corvette is a great investment with vehicles going up £ 30,000 a year in the current market. This was kept by Classic Car Garage for approx 6 years upon the completion of its full restoration and then was sold to a client in the UK last year. The car currently sits on 2108 miles with only one UK owner since its nut & bolt restoration. Vehicle can be viewed right now at Mulgari Automotive
