The work that Nashville’s Greening Auto did on Alan and Loretta Woodall’s ’65 Corvette coupe, based on Eric Brockmeyer’s design, was so well executed that show organizers put it in the “Mild Sports” category despite the fact that according to Woodall the only part of the car that hasn’t been modified is the roof. Woodall calls it an “understated and elegant car” and the car combines classic second generation Corvette looks with a European flair. Paul Atkins did the interior and Advanced Plating, which does the trim for many top show cars, did the chrome. Isis supplied the multiplexed wiring system, power window controllers and  the dashboard touchscreen. While many of the other Great 8 finalists are fitted with superchargers or turbochargers, C2/SS sports a normally aspirated GM LS7, which is still good for 505 HP. To be honest, I’m getting a little tired of seeing LS into vintage Vette engine swaps. Don’t get me wrong, the LS engines are terrific. I built a LS9 myself out at GM’s Wixom Performance Build Center. It’s a fabulous motor. Still, it takes no imagination to put a LS in an early Corvette. I’d be more amused if someone dropped a Blue Flame Six from a ’53 Vette into a C6.
