1961 Chevrolet Corvette completely redone and updated using only the original body. This beautiful Corvette drives and handles like a 2015 with the nostalgic look that everyone wants today.
The original body was lowered on an Art Morrison chassis with the following updates:
All new suspension and Ford 9 in. rear end ordered and installed.
Willwood brakes and stainless lines
LS376 Crate Motor
Tremic TKO 600 5 Speed
Complete Ron Francis wiring system mated to GM wiring harness
Michelin Pilot Super Sport Tires
Stainless exhaust with a custom tip installation as seen in the rear pics
Detroit Speed rack and pinion steering
Custom aluminum radiator
Dakota Digital Gauges
Ididit steering column with a new leather steering wheel
New Al Knoch updated seats, frames and tracks (very comfortable)
Complete Al Knoch red leather interior (real leather) installed
Power window conversion
Kenwood Audio and Navigation system
The car was completed in June.
Why do a complete nut and bolt restoration on a 60's corvette and then have it drive and handle like an old technological, uncomfortable car, when you can have the look you want and it will drive like a new, go anywhere classic machine?
