Tony Hawk has just stopped by Jay Leno’s Garage to show off his 1964 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Sting Ray convertible. In fact, it was the first time he saw it in about three years. He had taken it to EW West before the pandemic hit for some upgrades, but the work was delayed.

Originally, the 1964 Corvette was put in motion by a 5.4-liter V8 engine paired with a manual transmission, but that's a thing of the past for Hawk's convertible. Because now, the vehicle has been brought to modern-day standards and converted into an electric car. It has an eco-friendly, rear-mounted Tesla small drive motor which puts out around 300 horsepower (304 ps). The conversion brought the classic Corvette to a current value of $70,000.
