1975 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray (Old Betsy)
Last updated Jul 31, 2009
This is my 1975 corvette stingray project car. It has the L-48 engine which i recently had rebuilt and now is up to about 250 hp or so. There is a lot of work to be done to this car but it will definatly be worth it in the end. I'm going for almost a classic modern custom theme with it and am trying to make it a totaly one of a kind vette. I had the two front brake calipers replaced because they blew their seals and was leaking fluid bigtime. Now it will stop on a dime. All electrical things work and now all that needs to be done is the cosmetics. First thing to do was i installed a new fiberglass 80-82 style rear bumper. I'm getting the front bumper by Christmas.
350 c.i. stock 160 hp engine but is bored out to about 250 with performance pistons, rods, pushrds, crankshaft, camshaft, intake, and a holley 4-barrel carb.
power stearing and power windows with a telescoping and tilt steering column
I put a chrome triangle air breather from Ecklers and a new 100 amp chrome altenator on it. I had the engine painted GM orange when it was being rebuilt so the engine looks great.
