Numbers Matching 396/375hp (L78) El Camino SS with Muncie M22 Transmission in Excellent overall condition! This
Very Original El Camino SS 396 looks, runs, and drives fantastic! Its original Code 10 black paint was repainted
once back in the 90's and still looks great on the very straight, solid, and original body. There are some minor
nicks and scratches from limited use. There is a spot on the tailgate and the right side of the roof behind the
window where there is some slight cracks in the paint as shown in the pics. There are only 2 minor rust spots on
the car. A couple tiny bubbles below rear window trim on drivers side and about a quarter size area at the bottom
of the right fender behind front tire. That's it and both areas are shown in pics. Overall, this car is very
presentable and draws lots of praise and attention. The original black bucket seat console interior is in excellent
condition. The seats have a split on the bottoms at a seam. Door buzzer still works! All of the glass and trim is
in excellent condition.
The Drive Train is the Original and Numbers Matching L78 396/375hp Engine, Muncie M22 Transmission, and KF Code 12
Bolt Rear End. This car runs, sounds, and drives awesome! Engine does not smoke, overheat, or have any unusual
noises. Oil pressure runs between 30 and 60psi. I did note that the VIN on the transmission appears to have been
ground out and restamped (shown in pic) and I'm not sure why but it is likely a factory grind out due to a mistake
as transmission definitely appears to be original to the car. Dates are correct (shown in pic) and it works
flawlessly. Even the reverse lock works. Factory power steering and power disc brakes help it to steer and stop
with ease. Car has its original SS wheels and nearly new BF Goodrich T/A Radials.
The undercarriage on this El Camino is very clean, original, straight, solid, and rust free! Bed is in beautiful
shape as well.

Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:31:00 EST

Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.

Callaway debuts its new C7 Stingray at National Corvette Museum

Fri, 02 May 2014 14:16:00 EST

Callaway showed off its first tuned version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum last week, giving the rampant enthusiasts of America's sports car a look at the roughly 620-horsepower, supercharged rocket.
Unlike the Corvette SC610 we showed you back in January, this Stingray packs a fair bit more oomph. Horsepower is only up ten ponies, but torque has jumped from 556 pound-feet to "at least" 600 pound-feet. Neither horsepower nor torque is official quite yet, although Callaway is expecting to know just what its creation can do once testing and validation is completed later this month.
The 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 now boasts a new, three-element intercooler, which Callaway claims only allowed the inlet air temperature to increase by ten degrees Fahrenheit during dyno runs. Previous designs saw a 35-degree-Fahrenheit jump. The exhaust system has also been fettled with, and now is even less restrictive.

Next Corvette ZR1 to get 700 horsepower?

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 18:30:00 EST

Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
