Ever see those late-model Corvettes that look like older ones? Depending on the year, these conversions may look plumb funky or perhaps just something that an older dude would drive. We’ve seen versions that resemble 1953 and 1962 Corvettes, but Karl Kustom Corvettes does a C2, from a split-window coupe to a facsimile of a 1967 427 roadster. This one on eBay is one of the former, but as rare as this car is, this one is a Z06 that has received massaging from Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.
This 2009/1963 Corvette Z06 may look somewhat funny in photos, but in person it looks like a sleeker, leaner C2 (especially from the rear). Combine it with the fact that it’s a real Z06 that was modified by Lingenfelter. Normally the Z06 would have 505 horsepower, but the massage from Lingenfelter pushed horsepower towards 660 thanks to their heads and cam package.
So there you have it −born in Bowling Green, then reborn in Iowa with a dose of Indiana horsepower. Is it worth $189,900 to you? If not, make the seller an offer.
