The engine has our signature camand some ported & polished heads
Sharkbite suspension - Full coil-over front & rear
C6 Z06 Brakes all around
Custom drive shaft
3.73 C3 diff
Dewitts Rad
Steeroids Rack
Dakota Digital Gauges
Custom Shifter
Custom Side exit headers
Dasilva Motorsports custom built side pipes

Its a long list that will result in one sweet ride :canadaflag:

























More to come
 
Original mounts are retained and modified to accept the Dewitts rad .

We take the original sender and weld in a return and use a C5 fuel filter that has a regulated return . See picture below :thumbs:





Love this build

That is beautiful. All put together with precision like a large switch watch.
Besides the smile the owner will have, Manny and the crew must get some special emotional bond when seeing the thing of beauty they created. Lovely Manny and all..............
 
I really like this concept of keeping the original body styling but upgrading the mechanicals. I have a friend with a 58 FI car that has won multiple NCRS awards and he never drives it. Not because of its value but because he says it is just uncomfortable to drive. Upright steering, little creature comforts. So it just sits.

Looks like great workmanship and I cannot wait to see the car completed. The owner will be very excited having a vision and seeing the completed car.
 
:driving:what's the latest? Can't wait to see the final product..........

Its moving along nicely :D

Manny, any issues with hood clearance on a stock small block hood car when installing an LS engine?
