A company called Classic Sports Cars out of Holly Hill, Florida built this re-make of the original roadster and it was marketed as an "E.C.", or exact copy, of a '53, it is not a Kit car. The builders only managed to complete 20 of the turnkey replicas before problems with GM shut the operation down. The 102-inch wheelbase, 11-gauge, 3x4-inch box-steel chassis does indeed feature Chevy components, including the cross member, but the rear leaf-spring suspension is from a '74 Nova, while the coil-spring front system came from a '72 Nova. Front and rear brakes are Nova drums, connected to an '85-vintage GM master cylinder, power booster, and proportioning valve by stainless steel lines. The steering column is also vintage '85, and a 14-gallon aluminum fuel tank rests behind the seats. Another deviation from original Vette specs can be found under the hood. An '89, 325hp, 350ci power plant provides a lot more go than the Blue Flame Six ever did. A Turbo 350 trans channels the power back to a 3.73:1-geared 10-bolt rear-end from, again, a '74 Nova. The body is also an exact copy. This replica perfectly duplicates the classic Corvette lines. In fact, the fit and finish surpasses that of those first Vette Roadsters, which were mostly hand-built in a temporary facility behind a garage in Flint, Michigan. The exterior of this build is done in beautiful coats of PPG Hawaiian Orchid basecoat/clearcoat paint, and is perhaps, its most prominent feature. The custom interior, done by Ron's of Oxford, is a white vinyl seating and panels and black carpet. Billet aluminum dash insert and control panel featuring a set of Dakota Digital gauges, and a Colorado Custom billet steering wheel top it all off.
