This 1962 Corvette Resto-Mod has undergone a body-off restoration and is finished in PPG Metallic Silver with a custom shaved hood, 2016 Corvette functional hood vent with under hood extractor, '58 Corvette grille and functional side vents with SS wire inserts. Its custom red interior features double-stitching, Vintage Air heat and cooling systems, Ididit steering column, custom Dakota Digital gauges and an Alpine radio with GPS/DVD/CD/Bluetooth and JL speakers. It is powered by an LS1 engine backed by a Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission and is cooled by a BeCool radiator with electric fan. It features a custom frame with C4 front and rear independent suspension, Ricks SS fuel tank with SS fuel and brake lines, power rack & pinion steering, power windows and Rain Gear wiper systems. It rides on Z06 Corvette-style wheels with BFGoodrich directional tires, and the power brakes with ceramic-coated calipers with drilled and slotted rotors give it stopping power.
