Sixth Up at The Barrett Jackson Auction
Sixth Up at The Barrett Jackson Auction,
Lot #677.1 – Will be crossing the block on Saturday 13th April.
This Resto-Mod Corvette is the result of a 6-1/2-year build with an investment of more than $200,000. Beginning with a bare shell, it was fitted with a new custom C5-inspired chassis featuring coilovers, rack & pinion steering and a Dana 44 differential. It’s powered by a fuel-injected 502ci Ramjet engine that boasts 568 ft/lbs of torque backed by a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission, and stopping power is provided by Baer disc brakes at every corner.
Inside the custom interior are 6-way power seats and a handcrafted dash to accommodate the stereo and the power window controls, along with the Vintage Air cooling system. Among the original parts on this car are the Grand Sport hood and the vented panel below the taillights, which adds a distinguishing flare. Designed, crafted and handpicked from the seats, carpets, trim, dials and shift lever, nothing has been overlooked with this Resto-Mod. It’s finished in custom Charcoal Gray paint with a Burgundy top.
