Chris Holstrom Concepts tasked me with helping to restyle an auction-purchased Corvette that was already done. Done is never really the final stage of any classic car though, and this Vette needed some help. A modern driving experience with classic looks is the goal here, and the foundation of this build is an Art Morrison GT Sport chassis with IRS. Up front, there’s a 427ci LS3 topped with Borla stack induction. A T56 handles the gears and Baer 6P 14-inch brakes keep everything in check.

The exterior has been kept simple and classic but has an attention to detail that makes it that much nicer than any 1964 ever was when it rolled off the assembly line. Bumpers have been tucked and adjusted, gaps scrutinized, and the fenders/quarters have been widened. Rosso Corsa paint caps off the bodywork, while Forgeline RS6 wheels complement the vintage theme.

Inside the cockpit the theme continues with rich two-toned leather and subtle sculpting that pays homage to the original design. Details include Vintage Air A/C, MOMO wood rim wheel, and Dakota Digital HDX gauges. Tony Miller at Stitches Custom Upholstery will handle all of the custom interior upholstery. Miller excels at such interiors and will hand-sculpt the center console, door panels, and seat foam to his standards.
