This Corvette was built by world renowned Norm Wizner in his shop in Atlanta, Georgia and rolled out finished in September 2013. The C3 was featured at the Summit/Atlanta Motorama and copped Builder's Choice at the 2014 Nashville Goodguys before being purchased by an American based Aussie before he moved back to Australia and imported it back home.
BUILD INFO: The theme for this car was always to be Pro Touring, Norm had already elected a sturdy Morrison chassis for the foundation (maximum resistance to torsional bending), while the rear suspension centres around a 9-inch-type housing infused with 3.70:1 gears and a limited-slip differential. Strange Engineering coil over shocks and a four-link suspension locate the banjo.
Custom A-arms are joined by Wilwood spindles and Strange Engineering dampers support the front of the Corvette, and the old cog box was replaced by a rack steering assembly. At each corner, Wilwood brakes sport six-piston callipers clamping down on 13-inch drilled and slotted discs. To be sure, the flashy big 'n' little rollers are foils for the Corvette's slick, silver bullet coat: Boyd SOB hoops measure 17x7 and 20x11 and support 225/40 and 295/45 BFG KDW friction agents.
More than 550 lb-ft of nearly instant torque can be quite entertaining in a 3,000-pound envelope, and in this case, it pours out of a ZZ502 crate with forged rotating parts, the perfect score for a power-adder. Rather, an exotic short-stack signature of the electrified Hilborn port fuel injection that is governed by a Holley controller was screwed on top and makes quite a statement when the bonnet is up. Underneath it all, Norm's Rod Shop balanced the assembly and bumped the compression ratio from 9.6 to 10.5:1. Aluminium oval port heads maintain 2.25/1.88 valves nudged by 1.7:1 steel rocker arms. A dual-row timing chain links the factory hydraulic roller (0.527/0.544-inch lift, 224/234-degree duration) with the GMPP crankshaft. The MSD timing module is set at 30 degrees. Waste gas and some unburned hydrocarbons are channelled through a Norm-built coated 3-inch system swedged into oval Flowmaster mufflers.
The intermediate drivetrain is composed of Richmond Gear five-speed transmission (1.0:1 final drive ratio) and an 11-inch Ram hydraulically activated pressure plate assembly. I
As for the Corvette's clothes, all parties deemed minor aesthetic changes but nothing that would sully the car's classic silhouette. Rod Shop deleted the windshield wipers, removed the cowl vents, sectioned the big-block hood, tucked the bumpers closer to the body and sank some custom inserts in the hood lump. Norm's agent anointed the carcass with House of Kolor Orion Silver base- and clearcoats.
When it came to the interior, it was hauled the C2 North to Pro Auto Custom Interiors in Knoxville, Tennessee. The minimal buckets are the focal point of the interior and were built by Wise Guys Seats in Elkhart, Indiana. Lipstick Red hides coincide with matching carpets, door panels, and dashboard. Painless wiring supports the mille-joule brigade, including the Vintage Air HVAC and the whimsical Classic Instruments gauges. On the active side, a Long shifter was fitted, and a Billet Specialties split-spoke wheel was chosen to mount over an adjustable steering column.
