This unique Corvette, finished in 2012 by McCabe Racing, was constructed under the direct guidance of NHRA chassis guru Don Davis. The idea was to create a one-off street car that could easily double as a bracket racer, and, after four years of hard work, that goal was fully realized. As you might expect, the car's flip-top body is made of quality composite. And that lightweight fuselage is highlighted in bright red 2-stage that's stamped with crisp silver coves which... wrap old school leafing around a ghosted checker motif. Under the hatch, 454 cubic inches of big block Chevy are spry at the strip and well-mannered on the road. Behind that mill, a tough Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed benefits from a remote cooler that's mated to a breezy Perma-Cool fan. That transmission twists a 9-inch Strange axle that spins in a fabricated, back-braced housing. That drivetrain hangs in a choice Don Davis chassis, which is pushed by a custom 4-link that's complete with adjustable coil-overs and an adjustable panhard bar. That clip is led by Flaming River rack-and-pinion steering, which spans Strange hubs that are finished with polished control arms and a second set of coil-overs. At the corners, Strange calipers squeeze slotted discs. And polished WELD alloys spin 125R15 Firestone F-560s in front of 33x19.5-15 Mickey Thompson Sportsman Pros. Piloting this flip-top is relatively easy thanks to a snug, all-business cockpit that's lined in neutral leather. The car's driver and one lucky passenger perch on simple buckets that feature body-matched Crow Enterprizes harnesses. In front of those seats, a minimalist dash hangs vital Auto Meter telemetry above a beefy B&M shifter. And in front of the driver, a purposeful steering wheel laps metal foot pedals. Plenty quick and plenty streetable, this pristine Corvette is an excellent combination of awesome Pro Street performance and timeless hot rod aesthetics. Call, click or visit for more information!
