1961 Corvette / C5 Restomod

1961 Corvette / C5 Restomod

A Customer in California has  purchased our Restomod Chassis and commissioned a 1961 Corvette build.

This is a custom fabricated chassis made to fit an original Corvette body. Suspension used is C4 front and C5 rear with a 6-speed manual trans-axle and shortened torque tube. The light-weight forged aluminum suspension components have been painstakingly polished.

An LS3 was sourced from a 2014 Camaro, properly tuned will easily provide 500HP. Long-tube headers are mated to a custom TIG welded exhaust built in-house, and the whole exhaust is ceramic coated. Electric exhaust cut-outs allow the driver to make some noise and announce his presence at the touch of a button.

We are planning some subtle body mods; adding a third tail light and modern door handles plus some Mid-year trim detail & 1962 model-year parts. A tasteful interior with modern upgrades is being designed, and a modernized heat & A/C system will keep passengers comfortable in all conditions.

Check back often for updates!
