Engine displacement Michael...congrats , I must say it is much better looking than the C8. Now this old school guy don't know much about anything after the C3 , so educate me on what does this " 427 " mean you mention ? that is what caught my eye when I read the " new posts " .
This is the LS7 Michael. The engine in the Z06 in this generation. Fantastic N/A engine with tons of grunt......you mean they all had good old 427's back under the hood ? that like 6.9 or 7 L metric ? , I thought vette's had 6.2 in them ? never knew the 427 was used or called in cubic inches again.......my kinda language !!
I believe the Zo6 have the 7 litre engines as does the 2013 I just bought. It the only convertible with this size engine. It’s a one year car and they put the badge in the hood which says 427 but supposedly it’s actually a 428. These engines put out 505 HP
thanks 4 the info on this unique machine . would like to see a pic of the 427 script on the car.
One of my favorite corvettes - love it - awesome power plant that goes back a long ways - enjoy!!! Almost bought one - wish I had. A car to hold onto because we will never see another 427 C.I. motor in a corvette.I just sold my 2011 convertible and picked up this 2013 427 convertible. It’s the first time I have had a standard vette, I must say I’m loving it.
I looked at one of these cars about 4 years ago. There was a father and son, the son had the 427 and the father had the 2013 60th anniversary coup. I ended up buying the coup so my wife could drive it as well. She now has the coup and I have the 427 convertible. So technically we pretty much have matching cars. Her car has licence plate HER VET and my car will have HIS VET . I will post some pics of the pair once I get home in a couple days.One of my favorite corvettes - love it - awesome power plant that goes back a long ways - enjoy!!! Almost bought one - wish I had.
