Barry Blomquist’s 1964 Corvette is a work of art. The blue second-generation Vette was built by the talented team at Roadster Shop and features a Chevrolet Performance LT1 crate engine* under the hood.

A restomod connoisseur, Blomquist chose the engine because it was the latest technology used in the seventh-generation Corvette at the time his classic mid-year model was being built. 
The 6.2L LT1 was the first Gen V Small-Block from General Motors and is still going strong today. The engine is rated at 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. Advanced technologies like direct injection and continuously variable valve timing are part of the package and work well in a build like Blomquist’s 1964 version of America’s Sports Car.
“It's just a very nice-driving, civilized car,” Blomquist said during last fall’s Goodguys Speedway Motors Southwest Nationals in Scottsdale, Arizona. 
Blomquist’s goal was to keep the car looking original and timeless, with a seamless integration of the modern power plant and a variety of other upgrades.
We took a closer look at the Corvette last fall, and now, we’ve made a couple of our favorite images from our Scottsdale photo shoot into wallpaper downloads. High-resolution desktop and mobile options are available below.



Be sure to keep watching The BLOCK for many more Chevrolet Performance builds from events throughout the country.
