The 1963 Corvette RestoMod is complete and ready for Detroit Autorama 2016 at Cobo Hall!
We are so excited to attend Autorama again this year and to be representing ourselves with such a beautiful car.
So this week’s Web Wednesday will be dedicated to JUST the 1963 Corvette RestoMod.
All of the great pictures and videos in one post!
Ready to follow the build??
The car was purchased in May of 2015 and was quickly hauled to the new owner’s home. As you can see, this was a great project car for making a RestoMod. The original engine had been removed and was no longer available. The body and frame were straight and had never been in an accident. Once it was home, first thing he did was give the car a complete bath.
After cleaning the vehicle, the owner took it upon himself to start removing the black paint. With plenty of elbow grease used, the owner dropped off the vehicle in this light grey primer coat.
The guys quickly got to work by removing the body from the old chassis and starting stripping off that primer!
After Tyler and Corey got all of the primer removed, we had the interior of the body media blasted to clean up the fiberglass.
With all of the paint stripped and the interior cleaned, Steve and Corey got to work on the body. First they cut out the rear floor pan and replaced it with larger wheel wells aka “tubs”.

Almost ready for the show!
