Champion Motors International proudly presents a one of a kind custom award winning 1970 Chevrolet Corvette Resto-Mod finished in Candy Apple Red with a Camel leather interior. It is apparent from first glance that this Corvette is a special car. An amazing amount of money, labor and love has been poured into it by its current owner. With an investment in excess of $100,000, there isn't a spot that hasn't been touched.
While approaching the car, you notice the beautiful Candy Apple Red paint. The first three coats were painted in gold with 20 candy apple top coats and three clear coats. Additional exterior features include stainless steel slat front grill, refinished chrome bumpers, 1980 mounted side mirrors, red bullet tail lights, custom 40 gallon gas tank and a Viper fuel cap.
While gazing over the interior, you notice the custom features. The seats are from a 1980 Corvette and are finished in Camel-hair leather with full race harnesses. The glove box, air-conditioning, ash trays and radio and console have been removed and replaced with custom race gauges and a black Plexiglas center console.
Under the hood is an original GM Bow Tie big block, bored, stroked and balanced to 522 cubic inches. Internals include an Eagle 4.0 crank, Eagle 6.385 rods, Manley pro pistons, Manley valves, Dart Pro-1 345 aluminum cylinder heads, Crane full roller, cam lifters & rockers, Dart Pro-1 single plane intake manifold and a 1050 dominator carburetor. The complete header and side-pipe system is stainless steel. The engine was completely built by Zul Motors in Babylon, NY. Current horsepower is 676 with 559 lb-ft of torque, but can be tuned higher. Power is sent to the Custom HRE 3 piece 18 inch wheels by way of a Richmond 5-speed with 350 gearing in 5 th while the first 4 are race gears. The drive shaft, 4 inch half shafts were custom built by Toms Axle in California. This Vette also features high-performance suspension by Vette Brakes Products, high-performance oversized manual brakes and a Steeroid rack and pinion steering system. This Corvette still has its original chassis which has been refinished. A 6-point roll-cage stiffens the
chassis and improves the ride.
This 1970 Corvette has won many awards including Nicest C3 Stingray at the Corvette Museum in March 2021. It has been featured in Corvette Magazine in April, 2020 and was also featured in a 2015 Super Bowl commercial. Hopefully, the next owner will take as much pride in this car as the last owner, who spent 8 years and over $100,000 to finish.
