This 1959 Pro-Touring-style Corvette was professionally built with
a new 2020 Corvette LT1 direct-injected 6.2-liter V8 engine that
puts out 460hp and 465 ft/lbs of torque paired with a 4L75E
automatic transmission. It has an Art Morrison C7 independent front
suspension, fully adjustable ride height and Strange coilovers. The
frame was powder-coated in a Cadillac Gray color. It has Wilwood
brakes with C7 6-piston front calipers with 14-inch rotors and
stainless-steel brake lines. It rides on EVOD one-off wheels made
to look like a modern original style with knockoff center nuts and
shaved Nitto tires with added whitewalls for a custom look. It also
has power rack & pinion steering, a Ricks Stainless gas tank,
Fragola Teflon fuel lines and fittings, GM wiring harness and
factory-programmed computer, electric activated 3-position
automatic hood, Dakota Digital gauges and LED lighting throughout.
The body is all-original and was completely stripped with glass
beads before being finished in PPG Franny Green and Global High
Solids clear. The same attention to detail was performed on the
bottom side of the car, which was painted with a black ceramic
coating. All body gaps are nice, body panels are laser-straight,
and the fit and finish is great. It has a new stereo made to look
like the original 1959 Wonder Bar model with Bluetooth, JL
amplifier, subwoofer and focal speakers. The convertible top was
completely restored, done in Chocolate Brown Stayfast material.
This custom 'Vette has 150 miles on the build.
