The Black Prince

Featured in Corvette Enthusiast Magazine

Back in 2009, Andy Boling from the magazine Automotive Enthusiast, got wind of my restoration by the folks at J&M and asked if I would be interested in have an article written about the recent restoration. The rest is history, and the shoot was done at Centennial Park, Fort Myers, Florida. Note the link to the article below the photos …

Black Prince’s Frame-off Restoration

The Restoration work for my 1992 C4 was done by J&M Enterprizes, Brooksville, Florida that specializes in complete Corvette restoration and custom restomods. A family owned and operated business, they pride themselves on personal service and have a reputation for quality workmanship. From light body work to complete frame-off restoration, J&M Enterprizes has the experience to help transform your special car into the car of your dreams. Tell Tim Ames that The Duck had recommended you to them!

In addition to a complete frame-off restoration, the stock LT1 engine was treated to a Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s (LPE) 383ci. upgrade. The 350 motor was stroked to 383ci and other modifications included a Callies 4340 3.75-inch forged steel crankshaft, and JE 10.8:1 forged aluminum pistons. The heads were ported and polished with stainless steel 2-inch intake and 1.56-inch exhaust valves, operated by an LPE-spec camshaft and 1.6:1rocker arms. Additionally, LPE included a pair of ceramic-coated headers, a heavy-duty radiator, and all new hoses and belts.
