OEM Engine updates :
runs better and cleaner since we installed MagnaFlow Dual Spun Cats Catalyic Converters

MSD  Digital HEI  Ignition kit with blaster coil, Cap and wires

and old style rocker arms with Magnum
Roller Rockers 

Alumium Radiator

Edelbrock water pump,intake manifold with EGR

This L-48 vette is not a hot rod ! it is a low horse power vette that has a stunning look with suspension and engine mods that make this stingray a demon when it comes to fast starts and cornering on the streets!

1972  Custom Corvette Convertible

mrstitch restored  this car for Dr. Mark J. Cleaner
Complete restoration  Paint - Body - Frame - Leather Interior

Back in the day of Nitro Cellulose Lacquer- 30 coats of paint

This Vette won all the Car Shows in Ca in its class
The door jams have the same amount of paint that the top coat on the corvette body

so opening the door you see tons of depth and detail


  We removed :The Body From the Frame to do this car,
it was a big job that took a lot of time to be completed , we thought we were just like the movie.
