1962 Period Corvette Race Car Tribute Built By Kevin Mackay

This car has a bulletproof GM ZZ4 motor (from Sallee Chevrolet in Oregon) with Edelbrock Performer RPM heads (64cc combustion chambers), a Centerforce Dual-Friction clutch, MSD Pro-Billet Mechanical Tach drive distributor, MSD 6A control box, an Edelbrock Victor Jr water pump, and forged aluminum roller rockers. For intake, the car has a ’65 365 horse Corvette manifold to keep a period look. For the bellhousing the car has a Lakewood scattershield. Cooling is via a Griffin reproduction radiator, a factory aluminum expansion tank, a heavy duty oil-cooler, and twin remote oil filters. Braking is courtesy of a 4-wheel Z/28 disk setup from Stainless Steel Brakes, optioned with vented and grooved rotors and a remote proportioning valve. The remainder of the suspension is stock save for gusseting. Transmission is Tremec #3550 5-spd overdrive.

An original fuelie ‘62 that I bought missing its original motor and gearbox. I sent it to Kevin Mackay’s Corvette Repair in Valley Stream, NY. I decided I wanted a period road racer, so Kevin incorporated numerous special features to the car, patterning them after Don Yenko’s ’62 racer which he was restoring at the same time. These include a single loop roll bar, center-fill big-tank with modified hardtop cut-out, SW gauges, side-exiting “Sebring” exhaust, trunk-mounted battery, night marker light on the roof. Kevin is THE guy in the Corvette hobby for race-anything. He is expensive but worth it and the awards won by his restorations speak to that. He has restored or worked on virtually every significant Corvette racer or prototype made.
