"Black Carbon" Dress-Up

Sometimes, it's the little things that can make a big difference, especially when it comes to dressing up the engine bay of your C5, C6, or C7.


That's why American Hydrocarbon launched its new line of made-in-the-U.S.A. underhood accessories that include the idler pulley cover, power steering reservoir cover, power brake booster cover and alternator cover seen here.

They're all made of hand-laid fiberglass that's finished in American Hydrocarbon's exclusive "black carbon" finish (or in your choice of colors) topped with PPG's UV automotive clear, for a look that's durable and temperature-resistant.

They're available in sets, or as separate pieces, and they all come with aluminum mounting brackets and 3M tape for an easy installation, as well as a lifetime warranty against peeling, cracking or fading, and a no-hassle return policy.

Shift In Style

You added a Tremec gearbox to your vintage Vette because you wanted at least one more gear. But it needs one more thing to really make it stand out—a Ringbrothers "Throwback Style" billet aluminum shift lever that'll bolt right on to your TKO-500, TKO-600 or T-56's shifter's two-bolt mounting flange.


They're made in the USA of 6061-T6 billet aluminum that's machined into your choice of 8-inch or 10-inch lengths—both with a 30-degree rearward cant—and it comes in anodized black (seen here) or natural aluminum finishes. The 3⁄8-16 threaded stud with included lock nut allows you to easily install Ringbrothers' billet shifter knob (sold separately), or other aftermarket shift knobs compatible with that thread pattern.

Got a Hurst shifter on your factory transmission? If it has a standard two-bolt mounting flange, Ringbrothers' "Throwback Style" billet shift lever's a bolt-in swap!

Bolt-On, One-Step C7 Customizing

It's never too soon to "personalize" your Corvette—especially the all-new C7, which is where Billy Boat Exhausts' new C7 billet exhaust tips come in.


They conform to the shape of the C7's rear better than the factory tips do, they're available in your choice of polished (seen here), black or custom-color finishes, and they're made in the USA.

You don't need to put an aftermarket exhaust system on your C7 in order to use these—they'll bolt right on to your C7's factory exhaust system!

Chassis Modernization Hardware

Ever talk with a C2 or C3 owner who's had coilovers installed in his pride and joy? Notice how he can't stop talking about the improved handling with almost-infinite adjustability they give?


Here's your chance to become one of them, once you install Corvette America's new coilover conversion kits in your '63-'82 Corvette.

In front, the A-arms are designed with 6 degrees of positive caster, for optimum highway stability, while the rear kit eliminates the rear leaf spring bundle (or '80-'82 monospring).

Once installed, you can fine-tune your ride with much more control and versatility, making your suspension stiffer and more responsive for track days, or more plush and comfortable for daily driving. Or, customize your settings for a balance of comfort and handling.

Corvette America's coilover conversion kits are available with options for small-block or big-block applications.

Clean Each Corner From A To Z

We're talking about the wheel and tire combo that fills your Vette's fenderwells, which deserve a one-step cleaner like Eagle One's "A2Z."


Its thick foam easily removes brake dust, dirt, grime and grease, while its acid-free formula is manufacturer-recommended for use on any wheel, hubcap, or tire. With A2Z, you get a high performance, "back to black" restoration for tires, and a worry-free deep clean for any type of wheel finish.

Eagle One's A2Z can also be used as a pre-wash on your Vette's lower body panels and wheel wells, to break the bond of tough deposits that soaps can leave behind. A2Z also works well as an engine degreaser, making it one of the most versatile products you can have in your garage.

Get Framed

Give your C6 or C7 the ultimate in cutting edge billet customization with West Coast Corvettes' new C7 Corvette Stingray license plate frame.


Machined from aircraft-grade 6061-T6 aluminum, it features angled louvers of a unique look, and triple chrome plating for a long lasting finish.

Installation is bolt-on easy, and it's made in the USA!
