Hello, thought I'd introduce myself after 4yrs of lurking. The names Tom Im the proud owner of a 1969 Corvette Stingray 427(base 427). The car was my fathers and as he can no longer enjoy it, he gave it to me as a 16th bday gift. Now that was 5yrs ago so im a 21yr old with a very fast car... good idea i know.
I've only recently been able to afford to get it insured, plated and on the road but it was worth the wait! although it was only on the road for 1 1/2 months before the Canadian winter kicked in(day after i stored it freezing rain came down). My friends all poked fun that their cars were faster because mine wasnt running... they are biting their tongues now. So i thought i'd throw up a couple pics and the short video keep in mind its still a work in progress.



and the video
The list of mods are in the video description.
I hope to learn as much as i can from the guru's on this site because i have a long road ahead of me.

What a great project car! Glad you are posting. Let us follow your progress as you bring the car back to life. I'm no expert, but I'm guessing two 4 barrel carbs was not a factory option on the 427. Looks very cool. :thumbsup:

No the motor is definately not stock lol. My dad had it built by a local performance engine guru Who had said that the motor puts out somewhere in the 550hp range, whether thats true or not i dont know but it certainly is faster than my ion lol.

You will hear me before you see me lol. Friday night @ the tim hortons on merivale @ meadowlands is the popular hangout in the spring/summer. I'd be the multi-colour Corvette hanging out with Cobalts.

When I am in Ottawa this summer I will be watching for your car.
