eaton 3:73 gears, 12 bolt posi, Front power disc and rear drums with a vacuum reserve tank.
Car was painted 8 years ago but only a few chips and some slight bubbling (on lower front fender and corner of door) show IF you look for them! I'd rate paint a solid 8, its PPG deep amethyst pearl, which looks like Fathom blue on deary days but on sunny days the pearl flashes a brilliant violet purple... PPL always comment on color! Bed has a textured roll-on liner that was painted same color as car. No rust or rot, frame is rock solid, panels are straight, all bright work shines as almost new. Owner before me had new quarters and paint done. He choose to shave marker lights and "SS" badging to give it a sleeper look. He had the car for 23 years, I've had it for 5, no fire sale here I just bought a 3rd classic and can't drive them all.
Car has ralley wheels with Mickey thompson street drag radials out back. Polished billet piston assist hood hinges, chrome, billet and stainless everywhere. ALL glass was replaced and had a light tint added prior to when I bought car.
I wish I had chosen a lower TQ converter as it being a stroker the power is there from idle. New headers didn't take heat paint well, large oil filter blocked by headers. Two choices, 1) relocation of filter, which I have kit and comes with car, or 2) short filter.
Elky is 98% done in my eyes, the personal touches you may want can still be added. Oh it runs on pump gas, engine has maybe 400 miles never tracked just local shows and cruising on weekends. always used Zaino wax system, great stuff!
Pics and what I've mentioned are to my best knowledge, I tried to be straight up and honest, I hope someone will enjoy this car for many years. P.S. cluster was changed at some point, actual mileage unknown, DMV miss labeled miles as 608,xxx because the "tenths" of a mile was listed.
Feel free to inquire if you have questions!
I reserve the right to end auction early

Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.

Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
If you have about five minutes and you can't get enough information about the new 'Vette, then check out the videos posted below.
When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette Grand Sport.

The first and most obvious tip-off that something is up with this 'Vette revolves around those silver stripes. Obviously the stripes themselves don't necessarily denote a new model. However, when Chevy recently launched its "colorizer" website for the Stingray, there was no provision made for racing stripes - solid colors only.
Grand Sport exhibit number two is actually an incriminating lack of badges. The production Corvettes we've seen to date have all carried Stingray badges on their fenders, just behind the vent. The car seen in these images has no such badges, which is an intriguing omission on an car that looks like a production-spec vehicle otherwise.
When Mark Reuss was in LA recently, he sat down to have a few words with the scribes at the Los Angeles Times. When the issue of a hybrid Corvette came up, Reuss answered with "Don't laugh." The General Motors president is a complete fan of the possibility, calling it "attractive" and "really fun," believing it would improve GM expertise and that "people would love it."
Naturally, the president being supportive of an idea doesn't give indication that a hybrid Corvette is on the way. However, with supercars like the Porsche 918 Spyder and Ferrari LaFerrari giving hybrid tech a solid, if remote, place in the performance car world, the inexorable trickle-down of technology means we shouldn't be surprised if and when it does happen.
And now that we have that non-negative half-answer to a speculative question, it would be irresponsible for us not to commence rumormilling for the C8 Corvette. Taking Reuss at his word, the C8 will obviously be a hybrid with all-wheel-drive - the left side wheels driven with electric motors, the right side with the mid-mounted, four-cylinder diesel engine. With coefficient of drag of just .16, figure on a 0-to-60 mile-per-hour time of under 2 seconds and an all-electric range of something like 30 miles at top speed. Don't forget, folks, you read it here first.
