1971 Corvette with a BMW M73 V12

Some people enjoy going with a popular engine choice while others enjoy something different. This 1971 Corvette being built by Richard Hayes falls under the latter. The Corvette originally came with a LS5 and four-speed but when the time came to swap it for something else, Richard went with a BMW M73 V12. The motor features Jenvey 40 mm individual throttle bodies and a Peterson 3-stage dry sump. Richard has done a great job of documenting the steps and issues he ran into. The project seems to be in the final stages and we are looking forward to seeing this cruising around.

  1. To whom it may concern,
    Looking for contact information for Richard Hayes, he installed a BMW V12 engine in a 1971 Corvette.
    Any help would be appreciated
