Modernized Stingray: Heartland Customs’ 1971 Corvette
Heartland Customs teamed up with CTEK to build a 1971 Corvette Stingray that looks and acts much younger than it really is.
Very few bodykits offer something that looks good enough to make the C7 stand out more than it already does stock. But this XIK Widebody Kit is definitely one of them.
Early last month came news of a list of GM Performance Parts for the Corvette Stingray that Chevrolet was going to offer. The only problem was the fine print that raised serious questions about how the upgrades would impact C7 warranties.
Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. There seem to be exceptions to the rule, however, and this C5 Corvette seems to be the best evidence yet.
We can see no reason to reject a flat-bottom steering wheel. If it looks good and offers realistic usability features, why fight it?
