Classic Corvette RestoMods
Corvette Resto-Mods are becoming very popular and for good reason. They combine the corvette's classic good looks with modern electronics, suspension and drivetrain. Typically, these vehicles have 1500+ man hours invested which by definition will include a full frame off restoration. That usually includes the installation of a LS3 6.2-liter crate engine with 430 horsepower is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission, while stopping power comes from 4-wheel disc brakes. LS7 power plants are not uncommon. The power/weight ratio of these cars makes them very responsive.
Vintage Corvette Restomods utilize various elements of future generations of the car, including front and rear suspension borrowed from a C4 and 18-wheels from a C6. Modern upgrades include ultra-leather seats and trim, air conditioning, a RetroSound stereo system with USB & Bluetooth, a canvas soft top, power windows and power steering. The higher end vehicles often are found with a custom tubular chassis.
Resto-Modfication, also known as resto-mod, is when you take an old car and modernize it with an updated engine, suspension, brakes, tires, and/or electronics. Drivetrains include LS3 or more with 5 or speeds with overdrive or automatics. And if you resto-mod the right way you can convert back to stock at any time. Stock is a vehicle that has not been modified and is in the same configuration as it came from the factory. The reasons for performing a resto-mod on a vintage car could include the owners desire to have either modern conveniences, improvements in safety or reliability and/or improvements in street or track driving performance. Restomods for modern convenience and safety may include options such as air conditioning, power windows, power steering, power brakes, stereo systems, etc
