I have included some info on the Greenwood brothers so you best understand the machine itself Greenwood Corvettes From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Greenwood Corvettes is an American automotive performance tuning and racing company specializing in Corvette sportscars started by brothers Burt and John Greenwood.

John and Burt Greenwood

John and Burt don't often speak much about their family history before the Corvettes, but it might be a good starting point to know that their father was a fighter pilot in WW II and that he subsequently worked at the GM Tech Center. Both of these backgrounds helped form their attitudes to performance and their interest in things aerodynamic. You'll probably see how it comes out as we go through the story. Here’s John speaking about his own life.
I guess that as a teenager, I almost always messed with engines. I built my first tube frame car with a 2 1/2 HP Briggs & Stratton engine with money from my paper route, but maybe that one shouldn't count. I started street racing around 1960 with a '55 Pontiac. Then I switched to a Chevy Impala and then to Corvettes, around 1964. I just kept building them and racing them. I would tune my cars up every single night and go out and race about 150 miles. I started putting bored and stroked 409s and NASCAR big blocks in my car. I kept building engines and changing them. I would sell the last one to build a new one. I was kind of driving my parents crazy; I built the engines in the basement or the den and then carried them up through the house. And there were always tow trucks in the driveway bringing my cars home. You know that if I hurt them or heard a noise I would shut them down right away and tow it. It was cold in Michigan so when you had to work on them by laying on the ground, it was better to save on too much damage.
I switched over to Corvettes fairly early, when I bought a silver 1964. I was about 18 or 20 at that time. I was one of the first to fit one of the early 427s. It took some modifications to the frame rail but the cars were lighter and the suspension was better. It was obvious that the car was a better platform.
I was married after that. I bought a 1968 Corvette (435 HP) and the first night I put an L-88 into it. My wife saw an ad for a parking lot autocross at the grocery store one day and dared me to enter. I did and won everything. I went back the next week and did the same. There were some pretty fancy cars because a whole bunch of road racers showed up with trailered cars, but I won again. So, I figured that since I could win, this wasn't a bad deal.
I went to the local road racing track (Waterford Hills) to take the driver's school. I think it was Frank Cipelli who first took me around the track and gave me instruction on rood racing; I ran across him later in my career and he helped me a lot. But at that time of my instruction, I didn't do so well. The guys instructing me did things differently than I was used to and I seemed to go backwards. There were women in Fiats beating me. I went through two sets of tires one weekend just trying to keep up.
I went away thinking that maybe this wasn't for me. I thought about it that winter and, because I am a car setup person, I kind of figured out what I had to do. I guess this was also the same time that I formed my engine building company, Auto Research Engineering (ARE). Anyway, with some good engine work and my ideas on suspension tuning, I came back the next year (1969) and started setting records.
I did a lot of racing that year. I got my regional license and national license in the same year. I also had a couple of Camaros running that year. One of my drivers (Ron Petrie) won enough races that we took him to the Nationals that year (1969).
In the next two years, I won the SCCA A-Production National Championships back-to-back. You know that a lot of the equation was the big engines. I had learned on Woodward Avenue that you don't want to get left behind on the straight parts. We always used the basic big block engines and almost always the all-aluminum ones to save weight. It also goes without saying that through all of this I had full support from my brother Burt and I also had a good back-up driver in Jim Greendyke. We had a lot of breakage in 1970 but we pulled out enough wins to beat out the Owens Corning team at the Atlanta National Championship event. In 1971 I also had Dick Smothers as a co-driver at the longer events. That was a lot of fun.
