’64 Chevrolet Corvette

Sometimes the overall appearance of a custom build is determined by one decision. In this case, a customer had settled on an LT5 crate engine as his powerplant of choice. To create room for the supercharger, and to also look really cool, the plan was hatched to create a C7 ZR1-style engine cover that worked with the C2. A new hood has been designed to bridge the gap between the Vette body and the custom carbon-fiber engine cover.

Keeping with the C7 ZR1 theme, the signature orange paint will be similar to the Sebring Orange of the C7. Other than the flashy paint, the body will stay fairly stock. Polished accents will nod to the past while the hood, wheels, and stance are a bit more modern. An Art Morrison chassis will allow for that low stance and Forgeline RS6 wheels will blend modern performance with vintage looks.
