Presented by Dream Giveaway – If you’re like most Chevy fans, having Santa deliver two Corvettes under your Christmas tree has never come true. Well never say never, because this year, the sweepstakes experts at Dream Giveaway loaded up Santa’s sleigh with two matching Corvettes (Yes, we know Santa must have a gigantic sleigh!) and one lucky person will win both of them.

Since the Dream Giveaway Garage is just down the road from duPont Registry headquarters, I decided to check out these earth-quaking Corvettes. I worked for a decade in the Corvette restoration field, so I have seen the good, bad, and the ugly. Walking into their showroom I was taken aback! The cars are matching, both in color and interior, black and red to be exact.
The 1961 is a top-notch restomod build, with modern Chevy powerplant. A new LS376 Crate Engine (480 horsepower) is bolted to a 4L70E automatic. The chassis is by Corvette Corrections, with late-model suspension, brakes & wheels. Other goodies include climate control, power steering, power windows, and 18″ wheels.
What’s the coolest feature? – that’s a tough one but we’d put our money on the powered electric hood. It operates from a stealth switch underneath the steering column, and its a great way to present the detailed engine bay.
As the new chassis and suspension were coming together, the body was blasted to reveal any imperfections. Several skim coats and many late nights have made it straight as an arrow. A few base coats and layers of clear were color-sanded for a mile-deep finish!
We’ve seen restomod Corvettes like this one causing a commotion at the big auctions so we know that you’ll be extremely happy with it if you’re the winner.
Speaking of winning, you’ll also bring home a 2019 Corvette ZR1. That’s right. We’re talking 755 horses of unbridled fury all tucked into Road & Track’s Car of the Year. Also onboard is 715 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful car in GM history. As this raffle is sponsored by Lingenfelter, they added a few custom touches inside & out. Here are just a few of its abilities:
- 0 -60 mph in 2.85 seconds
- 0-100 mph in 6 seconds
- Quarter-mile in 10.6 seconds at 134 mph.
- Top speed of 212 mph
- 19-inch wheels, front/20-inch wheels, rear
- Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires
The seats are heated and ventilated red leather, and the interior has all available carbon fiber. As the last of the front engine Corvettes, it was ordered with the best equipment:
- 3ZR – Premium Equipment Group
- CFV – Track Performance Package
- EYT – Competition Sports Seats
- J6F – Custom Caliper Color – Red
- M5U – 8-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission
