1963 Chevrolet Corvette Pro-Touring
Think you've already seen the best restomods around? Thank again. This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette is a pro-touring machine that keeps the iconic C2 silhouette, but it has the modern LT4 engine. Plus, take the time to look over the custom frame, paint, and interior. Once you realize how amazing this full custom build is, make room in your trophy case.
Even from just a quick glance everyone will know this Sting Ray is special. The red paint takes advantage of the most modern clearcoat practices so you get a deep shine that you'll swear it was dipped in candy. The '63 was the perfect starting point for this project. It's the first year for the legendary C2 Sting Ray, and so everyone knows it's the one and only year for the sought-after split rear window. Plus, this is the one is for the lovers of brightwork. After all, not only do you get the artful bumper that makes the C2 so iconic, but also you get the big, bright hood screens. Plus, when you have invested so heavily over every inch, and there is less than 6k miles on the whole build, you better believe everything shines bright enough for ladies to check their makeup against your chrome. And while you can tell this one is a cut above classic by its laser-straight body lines, the late model Corvette polished alloys also clue everyone on all the custom upgrades beneath the skin.
Just like the exterior, the interior is unmistakably based on a C2, with a ton invested in giving it modern attractiveness. For example, the iconic dual cowl dash has the level of crispness that feels like you're buying this from Chevy in '63. And while all the gauges are in the correct place, you'll notice plenty of upgrades. As expected from a full custom build, it comes loaded with features such as air conditioning, power windows, power steering, a modern AM/FM stereo with digital tuner, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. When you slip behind the three-spoke leather and chrome steering wheel, you'll notice the full AutoMeter gauge package that instantly lets you know there's something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear it roar.
Any thoughts that this Corvette is running something close to stock are completely blown away the moment you pop the hood. Everything you see is either painted to coordinate with the exterior or polished to a mirror-like shine. And the amount invested to keep the custom installation looking this tidy can win awards all on its own. But more than just style, as a true pro-touring machine, there is substance behind the shine with the LT4 fuel-injected V8. While you'll love this modern power, its upgraded support components also mean you can even idle in traffic without worrying. But this car is much more than great paint and a dynamite motor. Look at the undercarriage pictures where you can see the full custom tubular frame. This also means an upgraded A-arm suspension in front, and the rear is an upgraded independent setup based on a C5 Corvette. Plus, each wheel has coilovers, disc brakes, and the grip of modern ZR rated-tires. So you better believe this award-worthy build is also ready to attack the backroads.
There is just so much custom work put into this wicked pro-touring creation that we don't have the space to list it all here. So give us a call for all the info. Plus, we'll even share details like the owner's manual and the full photos file on this so you can take others on this iconic split-window's full transformation.
