Default Nicely built 90

I am considering letting this go and was wondering if there was any interest at $25,000.

I bought the car from mseven (Mick) here. This is his listing which gives details on the build:

https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...one-right.html

Highlights: 396 stroker built by TPiS. It is listed on their website's gallery page: https://www.tpis.com/pages/396tpi
Dana 44 4:10 gears
Coil-over suspension
Nitrous

Changes I made:

Replaced the 700R4 with a very low mileage 1996 ZF 6-speed with Hurst shifter. The trans was bought from a GM dealer and run for a short time in an 87 C4. I can provide further details on the history of this transmission upon request as well as a lot of pictures from the conversion. I did a nice job on this following Mick's level of quality and detail found throughout the rest of the car.

Used a Ram dual-disc clutch with hydraulic throw-out bearing specified for this car and rated for 700HP. Has a nice stock-like pedal.

Added Weld S71 wheels with Nitto NT555's 275/40ZR17 fronts and 315/35ZR17 rears. I do not have the wheels shown in Mick's post.

Added a Tom Gasper (Tommy's Speed Shop) targa bar and EM Racing harness bar

Replaced the Magnaflow mufflers with Corsa's to eliminate resonance

Replaced Mick's solid engine mounts with new poly ones to reduce vibration

The car runs great. It is fast, loud and a bit obnoxious if you are not used to this level of power. Mick did the suspension right and the car handles well and is very stable when driving aggressively.

I have everything I took off including the 700R4/TC/shifter as well as a pick-up truck load of original parts Mick gave me when I bought the car.

I have pictures and a stack of receipts from Mick's work as well as my own. Have the dyno sheets from TPiS.

This is a unique C4 in excellent condition and I would miss it if it sells. My wife and I bought a weekend place early last year and I just don't have time to drive it anymore.

Very nice car Was it ZF swapped when you bought it? If not, how hard was it to do, or did you get someone to swap it for you? PM if you wish. Didn't mean to go off topic.

This car was done right youd have to see it up close to appreciate the work Mick put into it. Not just a cleaned up C4 with a motor....good to see the car is around. LOT of $ and time into this one

the cost of powdercoating alone would be staggering;to build this would easily cost twice the asking price

OP a walkaround video and sound clip on boobtube may help;the guy who has done this before will see the value in buying one done be patient

Thanks for the reply. I know there are still a few people here who know Mick and know this car. It is a work of art.

I have the receipts to show the price in the OP is less than half of what went into the car.

Making a video is a great idea.

I did the ZF swap myself. The car came set up for the strip with a high stall torque converter and B&M shifter. If I had any interest in running it on the strip, I would have left it alone.
This project went well and I would do it again, but everything on this car is like brand new and very nice to work on. The only issues I had was trying to use a stock clutch fork and throw-out bearing. At the time, a pivot stud was not available and mine was worn. Once I decided to scrap that idea and go with the Ram clutch, it was all downhill. PM me if you want more details.

I planned to post a video, but then the snow came.

I'll get some more pics posted. Thanks. There are a bunch of pictures in the link. It looks the same except for the trans and mufflers

Wow! I don't even remember him selling it. Pics will sell the car. That this was pristine and I assume it still is. He did some super neat and clean crafty work on it IIRC.

I remember this car from years ago and drooling over it.

Awesome car with a lot of time, effort, and attention to detail put into every aspect.

Good luck. If I had the extra space and wasn't building another car right now I would be interested. I want a C4 ZR-1 but this is a beast of a car
