Originally assembled on December 2, 1962, this 1963 Corvette Restomod Convertible has seen some serious mechanical upgrades and is ready to hit the cruise scene. This car was purchased a few years ago, at which point the owner decided to invest $40,000 in the engine, transmission, brakes, and suspension to ensure that this car would be able to keep up with the modern Corvettes. This car’s paint is older and in overall good condition with a good shine. Convertible top looks to be a few years old as well, but is also in good condition with a good window and no major stains. Chrome bumpers are in good to very good condition with no dings or rust. Taillights are in overall good condition with no cracks. This car wears a set of polished aluminum custom offset Billet Specialties wheels, which measure 17x7 in the front and 17x8 in the rear. These wheels are in excellent condition with no curb rash and wear sticky Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 tires with an average of 9/32nds tread depth remaining.

These seats look to be older, but are still in good condition with no rips or tears. Dash pads are in very good condition with no cracks and the door panels and center console are in good condition. Gauges are in very good condition with little to no fading and relatively clear lenses. Carpet is recent and in very good condition. Seatbelts look to be new and a smaller diameter steering wheel with a black vinyl rim has been added , in addition to a Custom Auto Sound cassette stereo.
As for the engine compartment this 1963 Corvette Retomod Convertible is all business, starting with a GM ZZ 383 crate engine. Attached to this engine is a Tremec TKO 600 5 speed manual transmission with the Keisler install kit. New offset trailing arms have been installed to clear the larger wheels and tires, and the front and rear suspension has been rebuilt with polyurethane bushings. Power brakes and power steering have also been added, including a Wilwood 4 piston caliper, 4 wheel disc conversion with slotted and drilled rotors , as well as all new brake lines.
