1963 Chevrolet Corvette – Vehicle build by Crown Concepts, Tucson, Arizona
Mixing old cars with new tech is always a big challenge. We are all used to how a Corvette should look, but as car enthusiasts we love to modify things and make it our own. Crown Concepts in Tucson, Arizona, is attempting to strike that correct balance with this ’63 Vette. It’s got all the go-fast and modernization items you could want, plus a little bit of something extra visually.
Underneath the fiberglass body is a Roadster Shop chassis with C7 geometry. An LS 427 Super Street Series engine provides plenty of go. HRE 309M wheels will be polished up to match the other bits of shiny trim around the car.
Inside the cockpit, modern functionality is being introduced while maintaining some of the major original elements. A new center console allows for new controls and audio, but it still has the Corvette design language applied to it. The door panels have a custom shape that borrows from C3 Corvettes just a bit. In the end it should all come together and be a cohesive package for the owner.
