Lot #1057.1 - This has just 6,000 miles since complete build. An extreme amount of care and over 1,500 man hours have been taken to create what is a very fine modern Corvette Resto-Mod conversion. The panel gaps are near perfect, the body is laser-straight with excellent paint. All chrome and brightwork has been refinished and the rubber trim has been replaced. The glass is virtually new and the interior is completely new, including spectacular leather hand-stitched coachwork. This was a no-expense-spared build. It is presented in arguably the best possible color combination of Cascade Green with Shoreline Beige exterior coves. This quintessential, ultimate modern/period Resto-Mod features Ram-Jet 350 EFI, GM crate motor with GM factory performance fuel injection producing 351hp with 400 ft/lbs of torque. It provides seamless power while retaining an ultra-reliable ease of operation. A modern GM 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission was chosen for modern convenience. It also has a Lokar performance shifter, Dewitts aluminum radiator, custom dual exhaust, Billet Specialties power steering, Billet V-trac pulley system, rack & pinion power steering, 4-wheel power disc brakes, factory C4 Corvette suspension, chrome C5 Corvette, 17" aluminum wheels and a Dana 36 3.07:1 rear end. The interior features Vintage Air Mini Gen-II system, Al Knoch custom interior with Omega gauges, leather-wrapped steering wheel and Ididit column, and Haartz cloth soft-top. This is a rare chance to own a classic 1957 Chevrolet Corvette with all of the modern technology to ensure a safe, smooth and fun drive. It was built on a Bill Dawson correction chassis. This Corvette is a unique addition to any collection.
