Description

High performance 62 Vette Rod

Named Big Red, this high-performance custom vette rod is more likely to be seen smoking its tires than taking a casual cruise. Big Red is a marvel of high performance and show quality. Custom built by Pugesek Motorsports, the goal was to create a truly one of a kind race car/street machine out of a 1962 Corvette.

Big Red features a 540 C.I.D. blown and injected bow tie big block for extreme power. Rounding out the racing style: 871 Supercharger, Turbo 400 transmission, custom built stainless steel headers and exhaust, custom round tube chassis, C-4 front suspension, Mosier axles, Weld Racing wheels and Mickey Thompson tires... the list goes on and on.

Show quality details can be seen on every inch of this fierce beauty finished in Torch Redpolyurethane paint. Painstaking techniques for design and finish have created a real show stopper. Other esthetic features include a hand fabricated dash, Billet Specialties steering wheel, custom designed and fabricated shifter console, Hurst lightning rod shifters, and Stewart Warner gauges. Custom designed grille and various other parts also give Big Red a serious edge.

This car is a Best in Show, Best in Class, and Best Engineered winner in multiple prestigious Corvette shows. It was customer built for a single owner and has been part of a well-cared-for private collection.
