Lot #439 1962 CHEVROLET CORVETTE CUSTOM CONVERTIBLE
Lot #439 - When building this car, every decision and modification on the car was made with one focus, driving incredibly well. Sitting comfortably in the leather upholstered cockpit, air conditioning or heat blowing, coffee or water in the carbon fiber and billet beverage holders. This Resto-Mod is powered by a new GM Performance 6.2 Liter aluminum LS3 motor. It is registered a 1962, so we omitted the emissions and catalytic converters. The LS3 breathes effortlessly through a polished and clear coated aluminum cold air intake, fed directly through the grille. The exhaust note satisfies at every RPM coupled with the 503hp. This Vette sports a Tremec 6-speed manual gearbox. The clutch is not heavy, nor light, it's perfect. Shifts are easy, firm and certain. It drives like a Corvette C6, only with more horsepower. The bodywork was made flawless before it was primered. Painted PPG bright red and then sanded, painted again, six times. Was then sprayed with four coats of PPG clear. We spent much effort on the body, engine compartment and then left the underside semi-gloss black. It's detailed, but again, built to drive. The interior is completely custom, made from scratch by the experts at Classic Restoration in Denver. Premium Nappa leather covers the dash, door panels and perforated seats. NAV/XM/DVD system. Roof is black MBZ canvas fabric. Power windows, locks and trunk.
