If you're not familiar with Tracy Performance, we would like to introduce ourselves. We are a "Total Corvette Involvement" business located in Roseville, Michigan. We have 30 years experience in all Corvette related areas.
In the 1960's, we were into Corvette street machines. Next, was NHRA super stock, modified production, gas, and altered Corvettes for drag racing.
The early 1970's found us in SCCA amateur sports car racing. This progressed to successful professional IMSA road racing in the mid-seventies. In 1977, we qualified 5th at the prestigious Sebring International 12 Hour Endurance Race. 1979, the 25th anniversary year of the Corvette, was exciting for us. We sponsored Tom "The Mongoose" McEwen and his silver anniversary Corvette Funny Car. We enjoyed a famous victory at the 1978 Indy Nationals. Then we were also runner-up in the NHRA World Championship competition. In 1979, we won the AHRA World Championship with McEwen's Corvette bodied funny car.
The 1980's returned us to our "street machine" roots. We hit the streets in exotic form with the "World's Fastest Street Machine". An ex-IMSA record holding Corvette road racer with mufflers and turn signals. Other street machines included nitrous oxide injected, supercharged, turbocharged, wide body "Daytona". We also did other body conversion kits for Corvettes. Over the years, we've had our hands in many special Corvette projects. We've done restorations of all vintages, late model big block conversions, etc. We've also had Corvette displays at the Detroit Autorama for more than 25 years.
Corvette swap meets and shows became popular around 1973 and we attended many. Soon after, we became involved by promoting the Detroit Area "All Corvette Weekend." Then, our annual winter indoor Corvette swap meet was the first Sunday each February. These sponsored events gave us a chance to help Corvette enthusiasts pursue their passions.
We've been involved with Corvette parts since our early days of "street machines." Since then, a vast inventory has has grown to support every Corvette enthusiast's needs. We soon outgrew our first two locations in the early 1970's. Then we purchased of our present facility in 1977. We now have a "Complete Corvette Center" covering more than an acre. It's just five miles from the General Motors Technical Center. This building and the surrounding property are full with ton's of Corvette products. As Corvette owner's interests have changed over the years, our inventory has expanded . Collecting Corvette components for many decades has given us many rare and original items. This includes a complete line of new, used, rebuilt, and reproduction parts. We also have lots of accessories and high performance equipment. We have over 2000, original dated, Chevrolet V-8 engine blocks. Including heads, intake and exhaust manifolds. We also handle a complete line of wheels, tires, interiors, and fiberglass.
Our Corvette machine shop and body repair facilities can handle any repairs you man need. We have extensive knowledge and experience in parts and services on Corvettes. This give us a distinct advantage over "mail order houses" that don't repair Corvettes. We've performed most of the services you may attempt on your vehicle.
