Rally Red, 900UU code ,1965 Corvette big block roadster, upgraded with an LS6/460 hp 4-bolt main engine and a Bad Attitude. The original 53-year-old L-78 396 engine is long gone and was replaced by a stronger, fire breathing 454 LS6 big block engine. From all indications, this is a true L-78 big block roadster, with correct options, such as a big block bulge hood, 6500 redline tachometer, 80psi oil gauge, heavy duty suspension with correct half shafts and sway bar. The Rally Red paint is very nice and covers a beautiful fiberglass body with great body lines and panel fit. The fiberglass front has been replaced and fits very nice without the normal stress cracks. The chrome is also very nice as is the grill trim, and factory side exhaust with slight normal wear. The interior shows very well with the correct, 402 code, black leather interior and matching black soft top, wood wheel and nice clear gauges. Under the hood looks factory correct with a higher hp big block topped off with correct big block Winters intake, chrome valve covers and new ignition shielding. This beautiful street beast is rolling on a very nice set of turbine style knock off wheels and red line tires.
