Corvette Of The Day: 1969 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Race Car
Converted for racing use
This 1969 Chevrolet Corvette coupe was converted for racing purposes more than 25 years ago, taking inspiration from the 1968 L88 RED/NART car that participated in the 1973 24 Hours of Le Mans. The car showcases a striking red exterior with NART-style livery, complemented by a race-ready interior. Its power derives from a modified 427ci V8 engine, mated to an M22 four-speed manual transmission and a 3.55:1 rear differential.
The Corvette is equipped with a range of features, including Torq Thrust–style 15″ wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, a side-exit exhaust system, a front spoiler, a removable hardtop, adjustable front coilovers, a fuel cell, an MSD ignition system, and a roll cage. Additionally, it boasts a fire-suppression system, a Hurst shifter, and a Kirkey Racing seat complete with a four-point harness for enhanced safety and performance.
