    Still in the hands of its original owner, this mid-year big-block convertible sports a 502-cubic-inch V8 and a host of other mods.

    I see that American ingenuity can live with American dreams. I have liked Corvettes since I was a sprout watching "Route 66". Having grown well into my 6th decade I do like modern comforts. I never thought I would have the "beans" to have one of my own. My '65 basket came with most of the original parts. The engine was lost when it came apart early in it's life. I can't have a restored classic but I can have a renewed C2. I do appreciate these Restomods and I can say that the faithfully restored cars are amazing. I do like my '65 for what it is and what it will be. An amazing bit of Chevrolet engineering. CAC is a fine collection of very helpful Corvette enthusiasts. I am happy to have found this and many other threads on line. Keep sharing this world.

    I vote stock, this subject hits close to home as someone "trashed" my fathers old and very correct 1964 original survivor car with a LSx conversion.

    The family has the window sticker, and bill of sale when sold as new from Ammon R. Smith Chevrolet.

    What happened to that nice running L76 327?

    What a shame! I greatly enough the resto-mod idea but there are enough modified, rough or otherwise non-correct cars out there... Why molest an original??

    Common sense is like deodorant. The folks who need it most never seem to use it and there's no polite way to tell them.

    A 700-horsepower C2 restomod proves the perfect cure for a Viper affliction.

    There are few things more iconic to the American aesthetic than the Chevrolet Corvette. Debuted exactly sixty years ago at the GM Motorama auto show, the roadster has held our collective attention for over half a century. Considering the massive amounts of cultural change we’ve seen since the early 50′s, the Corvette serves not only as the poster child for the American automotive obsession, but as a stalwart symbol of consistency. The Corvette has always been a RWD roadster with naturally-aspirated V8 power, and although there have been numerous one-off creations by various tuners that have explored various other configurations, the formula remains the same as the 7th generation model is released onto American roads this year.
