I love it and have been thinking about a similar/but different build. Is it the complete driveline from the ZL1 or just engine and transmission?

I think this car was in Chicago for the muscle car nationals.
Great looking build!

I took a ton of pictures of the car at SEMA, simply stunning! One of my favorites at the 2013 show. Nicely done, enjoy it.

Yes you are right. We were honored that our car was invited to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals show in Chicago which took place a few weeks after SEMA.

That annual show is open to the public and they work hard to fill it up with some of the rarest cars ever assembled in one place every year. Anyone who loves Muscle Cars should add that show to their bucket list. It is held in Chicago every year.

Thank you to everyone for such nice compliments!

They mean a lot to us.

Oddly enough, I don't have a lot of good pictures of the interior now that it is complete but I"m happy to share some of these pics taken during the build process.

Our approach was to include all the modern electronics of the ZL1 drive train, Vintage Air's Air Conditioning system and Dakota Digital VHX gauges but to keep them all hidden within a "stockish" looking interior.





We went with the Deluxe 69 interior trim with tilt wheel and power windows.



V8TV built a highly modified roll cage that hugs the outer surfaces of the interior as much as they dared so as to keep it hidden as much as possible.





Granted, Recaros were not standard fare in 69 but the original seats had zero lateral support.



The rear seat was narrowed and recovered in the same material Recaro used on the front seats.



Like the outside of the car, we did not want to go too far with customization on the inside for fear the car would lose its original identity. Our goal was to avoid messing too much with the attributes of the 69 design that have made it iconic and timeless all these years.

Sorry I don't have more pics of the interior now that it is done and cleaned up. Hopefully this gives you an idea.

Thanks for asking!

Curious what size pipe did you use on cold air intake?

I dig the hard lines on inner cooler, very nice ride!

Thanks!

The cold air intake is 4 inch diameter. Our design criteria was to have minimal bends and at least 6" before and after the Mass Air Flow Sensor.
