1992 Corvette with a rebuilt LT1 bored .30 over to 355 cubic inches. All internals are new. Only 9,000 miles on the build. The engine/differential and suspension build was completed in 2018 by Hammer Performance. The transmission, brake and interior swap were completed in 2021. I have owned this car since 2009. I built this car to my liking and spared no expense because I never thought I would sell it. However, I hardly have time for it and it is time to move on and let someone else enjoy it. I have a lot more money into this car than what I'm asking for it. For the first 10 years or so of owing it, it shared daily driving duties with another car, therefore it racked up miles but now basically everything but the paint is new. Since finishing the build, I have gone on short road trips and drive it once a week and it drives great. It handles corners well, is comfortable on the highway, still gets 25 mpg, and accelerates very well. The AC is ice cold (converted to R134) and the stereo is decent for its age. It is very fun with the removable top on nice days as well.

Engine:
.Has a custom head and cam package from Elliotsportworks.com (LE1 heads and 226/234 .584/.584 110 LSA cam).
.Comp Cams pro mag 1.6 roller rockers
. New pistons, rods, valve springs etc.
. Melrose 1 7/8 long tube ceramic coated headers
. 3" x pipe with high flow cats to a custom axle back.
. High flow airbox with AEM dry filter
. New AC Delco optispark with the good Mitsubishi sensor
. New AC Delco water Pump
. Dewitts aluminum radiator with spal fans (runs very cool)
. New motor mounts
. New sensors (map, acm, etc)
. XS Power high torque starter
. Tuned by PCM of North Carolina
. Engine runs very strong and made low 400's horsepower.

Transmission:
.6 speed manual swap professionally done (was originally an automatic car) (looks factory and performs better than factory)
. Black tag ZF6 manual transmission (loud like all black tags but I chose the black tag because of how much stronger it is than the blue tag)

. Spec stage 2+ clutch with their single mass conversion flywheel.

.Hurst/Core short throw shifter.

. ZF Doc beam plates to strengthen the C-beam's mounting points.

Differential:
New differential from Zip corvette. All seals, clutches etc are new and has 3.54 gears with a limited slip.

Suspension:
.Z51 spec Beilstein shocks
.Polyurethane bushings in the rear.
.Rear has been lowered to match the front.

Wheels/tires/brakes:
. (Front) New C6 corvette calipers/rotors with Hawk HPS pads and stainless steel brake hoses.

. (Rear) New stock style rotors with Hawk HPS pads and stainless steel brake hoses.

.17×9.5 front and 17×11 Rear C4 ZR1 style wheels.

.275/40/17 front and 315/35/17 Rear Nitto 555G2 tires that have lots of life left.

Interior:

.The entire interior was replaced in 2021 from a car with only 20,000 miles. I switched it from the original tan to black.

.The seat leather and cushions were brand new and I switched from the base seats to the sport seats.

.Original bose stereo

.New window tint.

.Old school Alpine CD Changer

. All weather stripping was replaced in 2018 and is still in good shape.

. I got rid of the problematic VATS (vehicle anti theft system) and now has to be started by a combination of the key and a hidden push button.

The bad:

. This car is 32 years old and has been driven, therefore the paint does have imperfections shown on the photos, but has never been wrecked or even gotten a fender bender.

. Has a power steering leak. I add fluid about once a month.

. The power seat motor is getting tired but is still able to move the seat.

. Since the car did not come with sport seats from the factory, the adjustability of the sport seats is not there but they do a lot better job at holding you in place than the base seats it had.

. The power mirrors no longer move electronically and have to be adjusted by hand. There are a handful of reasons it stopped working but I have not had time to address it.
