When you find an original fuel-injected C1 Vette your mind first goes toward plans of restoration. However, when the drivetrain is gone and the original body has seen much better days, your options widen up a bit. Owner Jerry Judkins decided to take this project in the restomod direction, but with some extra attitude.

A quick look reveals a super-low stance thanks to an Art Morrison chassis. Moving that chassis along is a 550hp LS7 backed by a 4L75E transmission. Sparc Industries machined up the wicked one-off wheels and also the steering wheel. Fabrication, interior, and paint were all done in-house at Hickman Creations.
