The National Corvette Museum got a new addition last month in the form of a C4 modified by Lingenfelter Performance.

Donated by John Blinn of Austin, Texas, the Corvette is loaded with performance mods including a 383 stroker with a 638 block, ported stock heads, upgraded valves, a Scat 9000 crank, Lingenfelter 5-degree flat pistons, Lingenfelter 74219 cam, COMP Cams Pro Magnum SBC 1.6:1 rockers, Lingenfelter SuperRam, Lingenfelter cold-air intake, a 58 mm throttle body, Bosch Design 3 30# injectors, F.A.S.T. EZ-EFI system, and an MSD ignition, as highlighted in a GM Authority report.

That’s quite a list of engine mods, which adds up to nearly double the output that you’d expect from a standard C4 from the factory. The Lingenfelter C4 also features a modified transmission and a few interior and exterior mods as well.

So exactly why did Mr. Blinn decide to give it up? “I’m getting older and thought it was time to do something with the car,” he said.

Well, Mr. Blinn, I’m sure I join most here at Corvette Forum in thanking you for helping to preserve the legacy of Corvette.
