Enjoy vintage C2 style with C7 performance!
To some, it might be sacrilegious to customize and modify a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split-window coupe, but it’s hard to argue with the impressive build quality of this custom restomod. This build was commissioned by the owner of Verrillo Motor Car Company, and now this one-off creation is up for sale for $299,999.
From the outside, this Corvette appears to be a lightly modified split-window, but the closer you look, the more you find small custom touches. Starting with the Black Sparkle Metallic paint job from House of Kolors, this body features unique elements like the heat extractors on the hood, C6 ZR1-style carbon fiber fender vents and custom-made wheels (19-inch front, 20-inch rear) with a knock-off design. The rear quarter panels have also been subtly modified to house those taller and wider tires. The interior is also mostly stock looking with the exception of the late-model sport bucket seats.
What really makes this restomod so incredible are the parts of the car that you can’t see. For starters, it rides on a custom tube chassis using the basic suspension setup from a C7 with coilover shocks, but the heart of this beast is a 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 from a C7 Z06 that’s rated at 650 horsepower. Power is fed to those fat rear tires through a five-speed Tremec manual gearbox and a billet aluminum Dana 44 rear end with 3.50 gears.
If you want a custom classic that is fun to drive and great to show off, this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette is an ultra-cool restomod. Contact Verrillo Motor Car Company today for more information on this one-off, split-window or any of the other classic and collectible cars up for sale.
