OPTIMA Presents Corvette of the Week: An Early Blue Devil
We’re getting all custom up in here with this Corvette of the Week: a 1999 fixed-roof coupe owned by forum member “lslvr638“.
While ordinary fixed-roof coupes were born before the benefits of the LS6’s power boost that made the C5 Z06 legendary, thanks to the magic of modification, this fixed-roofer is a legend in its own right.
There’s no LS1 under this Corvette’s blue bonnet. Instead, lslvr638’s ‘Vette is rocking a 427 C5-R block with forged internals, COMP cam, AFR heads, a FAST fuel system, and a bunch of other bits and bobs that make this car another kind of Blue Devil.
