This Restomod C1 is a Jaw-Dropper By Joseph Coelho. Michael Suppo's C1 Corvette is a perfect example of a restomod done right. Just for the record, I did not adjust the "coil overs" on the Corvette Correction chassis, because there are no coil overs.

Restomod cars can be done very tastefully, or totally ruin the classic on which it is based. Thankfully, this C2 falls into the former camp! From a few steps back it looks pretty original with a factory correct paint scheme and bodywork, but move closer and there a few hints that this is no ordinary Corvette.

The biggest giveaway is the car’s larger alloy wheels that hide modern disc brakes at each corner. This creation also sits slightly lower thanks to new 1996 Corvette suspension and coilover shocks.

The dark blue leather interior appears as the original designer intended, with the cabin totally unblemished. It’s a great specification with its creator knowing the true value of the understatement.

Painted the silver then applied the " corvette " then sprayed the charcoal for the "brembo" then shot the whole thing with red caliper paint. Removing the vinyl decals was very tedious! Love how they turned out, one of a kind like the rest of the car.

Hey Santa,I have been a good boy and I will settle for just this one toy!!!! I stumbled across this I know its an older thread, you ever finish the car yet?

Something that isn’t understated is the power plant under the hood. A ZZ 454 cubic-inch Tri-Power V8 calls the engine bay home and absolutely dominates the space. The bright red ‘big block’ features a cast-iron exhaust manifold and is dressed to look like a 427 motor — in reality its performance outstrips the 425hp of the engine it replicates.

Sometimes less really is more, and in the car of this tastefully customized C2 Corvette, that is very much the case. Big performance, classic looks, and more modern handling creates the perfect restomod cocktail.

The car is being sold without reserve at Barrett-Jackson’s Palm Beach event April 11-13th, 2019.
