The world is moving towards an electric-powered vehicle future, but at least for now, Chevrolet is willing to keep advancing the Gas-Powered Corvette engine. Yesterday, Chevy announced the new C8 Z06 powered by the totally new 5.5-liter, naturally aspirated, flat plane crank, V8, dubbed LT6.

The LT6 has the highest red-line of any production motor GM has produced, a staggering 8,600 RPM and produces 670 hp @ 8,400 rpm, 460 pound-feet of torque @ 6,300 rpm and propels the Z06 from 0-60 in just 2.6 seconds.

No pricing has been announced as of this email.

This Week’s Specials

1967 L71 427/435
NCRS validated tank sticker
frame-off restored & the rarest color!

1967 black corvette l71 convertible exterior 1

What Mike Likes about this Corvette:

“The pinnacle of Corvette Collectables always includes a 1967 435 coupe or convertible. When we speak about rarity in numbers, we differentiate the bragging rights by adding options and seeking rare colors. Factory side pipes are one of those rare options. Black is one of those rare colors!

I can’t even imagine how many 1965 through 1967 Corvettes have had side pipes added over the 55 plus years since they left the factory. Adding side pipes does not mean that they belong on the car or came that way from the factory. Having documentation like the owner’s warranty booklet; protecto plate will not certify that a Corvette left the factory with any particular options including side pipes.

Starting in 1967, the Corvette order copy was born and first appeared on the left side of the top of the gas tank as the chassis cruised down the assembly line.

This was a game changer and for the first time a Corvette could be documented with all of its original components and options and was somewhat preserved by the body covering the document.

It is this document that can prove whether or not a 1965 through 1967 Corvette stingray actually came with factory side pipes.

This example today we are showcasing is one of those rare examples of a factory side pipe and factory shoulder harness triple black convertible that’s basically rarer than hens teeth. Judged at Bloomington Gold and receiving top honors we present here today this amazing example. Please stop by the show room to see it in person.

This Nabers Brothers restoration done for a client in Texas back many years ago has survived the test of time!

We now offer it for sale out of another collection of a good client in the western United States. Text, email or call us with any questions you may have on this outstanding example!

Hail to holy grail!”

Fall Special Price: $350,000 $315,000!

2014 Z51 Convertible

Loaded and only 29k Miles!  

2002 pewter corvette coupe exterior 1

What Mike Likes about this Corvette:

“There is nothing like driving a top down triple black Corvette.

This ultra-low mileage Z51 triple black convertible is loaded with goodies and represents the ultimate performance package offered during the introduction of the C7 Corvette for 2014. Bad to the bone!  Fully serviced, detailed test driven by myself personally and attested to that she is something special. C7’s are hot and there’s a large number of us who still enjoy the styling and classical historical significance of having a Chevy V8 upfront!

After all it’s what’s upfront that counts!! And what’s behind us doesn’t really matter, now does it Mustangs!!!”

Priced to Sell at: $52,888

1966 L79 Coupe

New a-c and a newly rebuilt engine

1966 blue l79 corvette coupe 1The original owner of this very nice example did decide to take advantage of RPO C60 along with RPO L79 and ended up with a rare and highly desirable ’66 Coupe!  The engine in this one was recently rebuilt and has only break-in miles.  And although this is a factory a-c car, the previous owner chose to replace the factory compressor with a modern unit from Vintage Air.  With that modification, you now have air conditioning that actually blows cold!

Just in. Priced at: $79,900

I’m sick of following my dreams. I’m just going to ask where they’re going and hook up with ’em later.
