This Corvette started as an original Split-Window coupe. It was
professionally frame-off restored and custom-built with modern
technology by the renowned Paul Atkins. It is powered by a modern
C7 LT4 6.2-liter 8-cylinder engine producing 650hp and 650 ft/lbs
of torque with a dry-sump lubrication system. It sits on a
custom-built SRIII chassis with C6 suspension parts and trans-axle
with QA1 adjustable shocks. The engine is mated to a T56 6-speed
manual transmission with a Monster twin-disc hydraulic clutch.
Stopping power comes from C6 disc brakes all around. The engine is
fitted with a custom mandrel bent exhaust with heat wrap throughout
and Borla mufflers. The exterior is finished in Maserati Silver
Grigio Nuvolari metallic PPG paint. It sits on custom wheels by
Mike Curtis Design wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The
interior was completed by Paul Atkins Interiors and is highly
detailed. The all-leather interior was done Lipstick Red with
Charcoal accents and is fitted with custom-built seats, Dakota
Digital HDX instruments with a custom black overlay with a red
accent finish. It features a custom dash by Dashworks and Vintage
Air Gen IV climate control with a fully electronic
microprocessor-controlled system. Other features include power
steering, power windows, tilt-column with Billet Specialties
steering wheel, Pioneer speakers and an Alpine amplifier with
Bluetooth capability. The interior also retains its original
stainless trim. Custom exterior touches were kept to a minimum,
with just custom bumpers tucked to the body and all-new glass. This
custom 'Vette has been driven less than 400 miles since completion.
