  Custom Shop’s 1962 Big-Block Corvette First-generation Corvettes aren’t a common sight at the Summer Nats, so even after a few laps around the Custom Shop’s Copper Topless 1962 C1 we couldn’t quite figure out where factory fiberglass ended and the custom work began. © Hot Rod Network StaffInitially we were struck by the big-block Chevy that was shoehorned into the car's compact engine bay. As if a 596ci V8 weren't enough, it's force-fed with a Vortech supercharger to the tune of 1,048hp. John Wargo is in Bowling Green representing The Custom Shop, which is outside of Chicago, and he walked us through some of the modifications we'd missed.

Arguments against a mid-engine C8 are the configuration's higher cost and its departure from the Great American Sports Car's image. Arguments for it are stronger. First, Corvette buyers are getting old, and they would find little reason to trade in for an evolutionary, front-engine C8 Corvette. Foremost, by switching to mid-engine, Chevrolet is doing what Porsche refuses to do with the Corvette's direct competitor, the 911. By going mid-engine with the C8, Chevy may finally have a Corvette that can out-handle the 911.

Spy shots suggest the C8 will not be mistaken for any other mid-engine sports car, with a hood nearly as long as the C7's, though with a short dash-to-axle ratio and a long rear deck.

The C8 Corvette is expected to again use the latest performance variants of Chevrolet's venerable small-block V-8 under its relocated engine cover. GM also has been developing a new 4.0-liter double-overhead-cam turbocharged V-8 primarily for Cadillac models. That engine would provide more variation, beyond sheetmetal, to distinguish the C8 from Cadillac's rumored mid-engine sports car.

After a complete rework, the ’65 now has over 757 horsepower.Collier located the low-mile '65 coupe through an ad that had been lingering on the Internet for several months. The seller wanted one thousand dollars for every thousand miles for the 42,000 miles showing on the odometer, but then lowered the price to $38,000 when he wasn't finding a buyer.
