Lot #1330 - 1960 Corvette custom Resto Rod. Beautiful paint that resembles polished satin aluminum done in a custom silver metallic paint with all custom hand-sculpted brass accent spears and trim chromed to mirror finishes in place of stock Corvette trim. Windshield surround custom made to allow glass edge on windshield to blend perfectly with the deleted top and side windows. Shaved door handles and subtle details on chrome and body with custom stainless exhaust outlets in rear bumpers. New Progressive frame, smoothed and painted body color with Air Ride Technologies Shock Waves fully adjustable ride height suspension front and rear. Mustang II A-arms and spindles with rack & pinion steering with Flaming River steering rack and custom painted '60 Corvette steering wheel. The Ultraleather interior in Torch Red flows perfectly with the custom Classic gauges and dash. Vintage Air and heat combined with Ron Francis wiring complete the full custom interior details. The 350cid Chevrolet engine is smoothed and painted, topped with one-off custom Imagine Injection Cross Ram fuel injection, all computer controlled for smooth operation through the Turbo 350 automatic with an original '60 Corvette shifter and Ford 9" 4-link rear end riding on Air Ride Shock Waves. The polished aluminum Be Cool radiator, hand fabricated interior fender braces and custom push-button solenoid latches for hood grace the finely detailed and smoothed engine bay. Superb custom finished details are evident throughout the engine bay, outside and underside of the car. Wilwood calipers and large diameter disc brake rotors all around with Budnik Famosa wheels in 18x8 front and 20x8 rear provide a great handling and ride package. Completely custom fabricated 2 1/2" fully coated exhaust from headers to the stainless custom exit in bumpers completes the package with a perfect sounding exhaust note. The spare tire well contains the battery, air ride controls and air tank, all controlled from the center custom console between the seats. This 1960 custom Corvette was recently awarded the coveted Builder's Choice Award at the 16th Southwest Goodguys event in Scottsdale, fall 2013.
