Check out this cool video of a 1964 Corvette Restomod that was submitted by a reader. His dad’s Corvette was recently featured in Super Chevy Magazine:

The idea of this video was derived from Rob at Underground Racing. Video is of my fathers 1964 Corvette Stingray, which has been referred to as “Stepchild’s Revenge.” It made the cover of the December issue of Vette Magazine. This was made for my video production class at school. I have a passion for making car videos and hopefully one day work for a big automobile corporation.

We assume the “stepchild” in the title refers to the nickname many have given the 1964 Corvette. With an LS7 under the hood, we see how this midyear model dishes out its revenge! Thanks for sharing Kyle and great job on the video!

But that wasn’t his ultimate vision for the car. He just wanted it to serve as the foundation for a wild C2 racer, and, wow, what a job Roberto and his team did, so good in fact that the Stingray was recently chosen as The BLOCK Feature Car.
