The amount of craftsmanship and detail built into this 1962 Corvette Resto Mod is second to none. An original 1962 Corvette Body was given 3 coats of primer, a sealer, 3 coats of Glasurit Salsa Red paint and 4 coats of BASF clear. A custom grill using 10 teeth from a 57 & a 58 Corvette was fabricated. Several subtle body modifications were made such as frenched headlights, custom gas filler door, a ZR1 polycarbonate hood insert and several other body modifications that will be highlighted in the pictures.

The Flame Red Leather interior also has many custom touches. First 3M sound and heat insulation was applied to the interior floor, foot wells, inside the doors and trunk. The dash cluster was reworked with Auto meter white faced gauges, a custom 4 speaker sound system was installed. A Flaming River tilt column, along with a Flaming River D-shaped steering wheel was utilized. A Shift-Works shifter, fitted with a custom boot, bezel and KUGEL linkage allows the driver to smoothly select the gear of the 4 speed automatic transmission. A Vintage Air Generation IV air conditioning/heater system was installed which includes 4 interior vents.

Power is generated by a LS3 crate engine with a custom polished MAF air intake and a Spectre air filter element. A MSD starter brings the LS3 to life. A Mattson dual pass aluminum radiator utilizing Evans NPG waterless non-corrosive coolant and a Spal electric fan keeps the engine running cool.
A 2300RPM stall converter with an interface to the engine and transmission computers was used. A GM fly-by wire accelerator system communicates the drivers pedal position to the engine. A custom fiberglass engine cover completes the engine compartment.

The transmission is a 4L65E 4 speed automatic and the rear end is a custom 9 inch with 3.50 gears, s
