No, this 1971 C3 Corvette doesn’t have the McLaren engine you’re thinking of but, how cool would that be? Anyways, local WCSX will be raffling off the car in their latest Stone Soup Raffle.
Local businesses have crafted the custom 1971 Corvette from the shell of the vehicle, which a listener donated after it had been sitting in a barn for years. McLaren Performance Technologies in Livonia, Michigan has rebuilt the original 350 cubic-inch engine, which is now displacing 400 cubic-inches and produces 385 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. And, longtime supported of the Stone Soup Raffle, Roger Penske, donated a new frame, according to The Detroit Free Press.
Proceeds from the charity will go towards the Holy Cross Children’s Services. The nine previous Stone Soup muscle cars have raised $1.3 million for local charities and, this custom 1971 C3 Corvette, should only help that number rise substantially.
