Overhauled and ready to race.
This 1970 Chevrolet Corvette will appeal to a vintage race car fan, with a classic design and all parts overhauled to factory condition.

This car will appeal to a smaller market than the average classic muscle car enthusiast, but Race spec. models are also becoming ultra sought after with their prize performance and heritage.
An interesting vehicle worth a second look.

‘Built in the 1970s by a renowned Arizona Corvette specialty shop for competition in mostly local and California Corvette club events,this Vette was extensively raced, refined and tuned to numerous victories in both SCCA and NHRA events.
None other than Dick Guldstrand was on board to tailor the chassis to precise specifications to slaughter the competition.

Guldstrand was so impressed by the ability of this small yet successful Arizona shop that he appointed it his one and only Guldstrand Authorized Distributor and Installer and affectionately referred to this shop as Guldstrand East.


Starting with a factory 454 LS-5 and four-speed coupe equipped with heavy duty suspension and power brakes the transformation to all out race car began. Completely disassembled, including removal of the body from the chassis to facilitate the installation of a full on Guldstrand Sport Suspension and a roll cage after a thorough strengthening of the factory H.D. frame.
Furthermore a Factory Chevrolet 1970 era LS-7 was procured through a local Arizona Chevrolet Parts Department and was carefully blueprinted and balanced utilizing all of the factory GM internals with the exception of the Pete Jackson gear drive and Roller Rocker Arms. The motor is topped off with a dual-plane intake manifold and a Holley 1150 CFM carburetor.

A complete MSD Ignition system with Soft-Touch rev limiter lights the fire. Backed by a period correct Muncie M22 Rock Crusher transmission, a Hurst Shifter and 4.10 gears, this combo has been tested and proven. Every inch of this Corvette has been engineered and modified to ensure that this powerful yet reliable race car was ready for action; it has been recently freshened up with a new clutch, new flywheel, new scattershield, new Hoosier tires, a carburetor rebuild and a complete fluid change. This Corvette is ready to race!!’
