DescriptionThis show stopping 1962 Corvette Resto-Mod offers the best of both worlds. Classic looks with modern reliability, power, safety and conveniences. Breathtaking deep black paint, new chrome, polished stainless, soft plush leather custom interior, deep pile carpet and the custom softtop surround the technologically advanced SRIII Motor Sports powdercoated tubular frame and all modern, powerful drivetrain with those accessories expected in a modern sports car. Professionally built with body, paint and engine treatments by Xtreme Autoworx and custom interior and top by Upholstery Excellence, both of Martinsburg, WV. The car's undercarriage features buffed aluminum C5 Corvette front suspension and C4 rear, Lonestar power rack & pinion steering, QA1 coilover shocks with adjustable ride height and dampening, and Lonestar powdercoated calipers coupled with chromed ABS power brake master cylinders. Upgraded to a slightly modified LS1 engine with Speartech engine management, Weiand polished intake manifold and Street & Performance ceramic coated headers breathing through 2 ½" custom exhaust pipes with Bassini mufflers. The engine produces approximately 400hp and it sounds great. Power to the rear wheels is provided through a Spec Z06 clutch and Tremec T56 6-speed manual transmission on through 3.73 ring and pinion gears. Weighing about 2,500 pounds, this superb handling, luxurious car is both quick and fast. Interior climate control is provided by a combination heating/air conditioning system by Hot Rod Air. Sound system is by Panasonic with remote control and iPod interface. Power steering, brakes and windows, as well as reclining seats round out the modern conveniences. Titled as a 1962 Corvette. Test miles only since completion.
