Watch this timelapse of a C3 Corvette engine swap.
The C3 Corvette is arguably one of the best looking American cars ever made, with curvaceous styling and a planted, aggressive stance.
This 1973 Corvette’s engine is due for a refresh, in the form of an engine swap, the old, worn out 454 is extracted, and room is made for a freshly rebuilt engine and transmission.
The block being taken out is not the original one, so there is no value lost, unlike what would have happened in a car with matching numbers.
The car and the grassroots approach to it make this Corvette engine swap video worth a watch.
