This 1977 Chevrolet Corvette arrived at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop after the customer wanted some modern upgrades done to the inside of the car. This car is not wearing an original color, and the original engine has been replaced with a GM Performance Parts crate 350, so the customer does not place a heavy priority on originality. The 1977s are not high on the list of collector Corvettes, so these make great platforms to personalize and enjoy.
The plans include upgrading the center console, installing some Dakota Digital VHX gauges, audio system, adding a Vintage Air A/C system, and backup camera, as well as fixing some issues like leaks and engine cooling problems.
