Better yet, ever wanted something that was really rare? That might be what the owner of this awesome classic had in mind when he transformed a run-of-the-mill '66 Vette into a world-class Grand Sport replica. Thanks to striking Mid-America Industries fiberglass, the car certainly looks the part. It definitely has the speed to walk the walk, given its 502 horsepower small block. And it probably performs just as well since its tough Tremec 5-speed is centered in a beefy Mid-America chassis and spry fourth generation Corvette suspension. Essentially, what the owner of this Chevy created is a car that'll do everything an original Grand Sport can do for a fraction of the money. A car that, thanks to decades of improved technology, probably offers a better mix of driving experiences. And most importantly, a car that you can actually take to a track and lean on without worrying about breaking an exclusive 1 of 5 collectible.

BODYWORK/TRIM Hailing from a $127K build that was completed in late 2012, this razor-sharp coupe wraps glossy black paint and a bright red stripe around fresh Mid-America fiberglass. The first thing that draws your eye is a High Nassau hood, which seats large, metal-trimmed air inlets behind a familiar cross-flag emblem. Beneath that badge, a modified front-clip positions aerodynamic lighting around a clean billet grille. At the sides of that grille, a widened and sculpted profile centers recessed door handles between, billet-trimmed air extractors, familiar bowtie mirrors and aggressive brake ducts. Opposite those ducts, a flush-mount greenhouse founds satin-finish wipers in front of a trick fuel filler. And at the back of the car, a re-imagined valance hangs monochromatic tail lamps beneath a locking decklid. ENGINE Tilt this coupe's lightweight hood and you'll find 383 cubic inches of stroked Chevy small block that twists stout 9.6 to 1 compression into 502 dyno-proven horses and 513 lb./ft. of dyno-proven torque. Certainly a fitting tribute to Duntov's original Grand Sports, this impressive mill, created by the pros at Moline, Illinois' American Speed, was balanced, blueprinted, assembled, dyno-ed, disassembled and reassembled all in the name of quality. At the top of the 1972 block, a satin air cleaner hangs red Chevrolet lettering above a 750cfm Holley 4-barrel, which is sequenced to billet Holley fluid lines and an aluminum Carter pump. Under that carb, an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake feeds CNC-ported Air Flow Research heads, which hide Crane roller rockers, AFR springs, Comp pushrods and Crane roller lifters under satin, Chevrolet-branded valve covers. At the back of those heads, a hydraulic roller cam twists an MSD Pro-Billet distributor, which bounces spark between MSD ignition, an MSD Blaster 2 coil and Moroso-loomed Accel Hi-Temp Super Stock plug wires. Beneath that cam, a forged SCAT crank pushes forged I-beam Super Stock rods, which anchor Speed-Pro Power Forged pistons inside Perfect Circle rings. At the sides of that crank, rowdy Stahl headers make quick work of charred dinosaurs. At the front of those tubes, a Vintage Air Front Runner system frames a Carter water pump, a Cloyes roller timing set and an SFI steel damper with a fresh AC compressor and modern power steer
