I am selling my 1969 Corvette Restomod ‘Xtreemray’. Please check out my YouTube channel for more in depth info. https://www.youtube.com/c/JohnVillottiC3Mods. It was originally an L46 4 speed car and had been completely disassembled and rebuilt over a 16 year period. The ONLY thing original from 1969 is the body, and the rear window. My wife helped me buy this car before we were even married and it was my daily driver for 15 years. I rebuilt for us to enjoy in our golden years, but unfortunately she has passed away from ovarian cancer and the car does not hold the same meaning anymore.

It was finished and roadworthy in September of 2019 and has just over 5000 miles. I’ve owned this car for 30 years and dumped a ton of money in it. I am a mechanic and paint and body guy by trade and ALL the work has been done by myself with the exception of the rear end rebuild, custom half shafts and drive shaft and the seat upholstery. I have ALL the paperwork and receipts for EVERYTHING! Again, please check out my YouTube channel for more info. Below is a list of all the modifications that I’ve performed.
