ABOUT BIG RED
1962 Performance Corevette
Take one of the most popular Corvette styles and add the most impressive racing performance technology and you get BIG RED. This custom was not built for the casual car collector. It was built to intimidate. Barely street legal, BIG RED is a fierce beauty.
Big Red is more likely to be seen smoking its tires than taking a casual cruise. It's is a blend of high performance and show quality. Along with the owner, Mike Stevenson, Pugesek Motorsports set out to create a truly one of a kind race car/street machine out of a 1962 Corvette.
Big Red has won best in class, best in show, and best engineered at the Prescott Corvette Show.
Features a 540 C.I.D. blown and injected bow tie big block for extreme power. Rounding out the racing style: 871 Supercharger, Turbo 400 transmission, custom built stainless steel headers and exhaust, custom round tube chassis, C-4 front suspension, Mosier axles, Weld Racing wheels and Mickey Thompson tires... the list goes on and on.
Show quality details can be seen on every inch of this fierce beauty finished in Torch Red polyurethane paint. Pugesek painstaking techniques for design and finish have created a real show stopper. Other esthetic features include a hand fabricated dash, Billet Specialties steering wheel, custom designed and fabricated shifter console, Hurst lightning rod shifters, and Stewart Warner gauges. Custom designed grille and various other parts also give Big Red a serious edge.
