Not all cool builds are commercially-done…

If you were to see this 1968 Chevrolet Corvette restomodat a show, you would probably think it was built by professionals in a shop. That’s ok since the owner, Jeff, would likely take that as a nice complement. The reality is that he’s been slaving away on the sports car in his own garage, pouring in countless hours to get everything running great and looking fantastic. The results speak for themselves.

Check out some wild modified C3 Corvettes right here.

While the C3 Corvette has been in Jeff’s family for 26 years, it originally started out as his mom’s car. For whatever reason she didn’t like it, so Jeff’s dad started restoring it for whatever reason. It sat disassembled for years until Jeff finally convinced his dad to sell him the car. Jeff had a vision of what it could be, something others couldn’t see, and boy did he hit a home run.

L71-Powered 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Is As Perfect As It Gets

  L71-Powered 1967 Chevrolet Corvette Is As Perfect As It Gets It's even Bloomington Gold documented. There are few cars as iconic as the second generation Corvette. With sleek stingray styling and high horsepower to match, the Corvette quickly became an instant classic. Unfortunately, our eyes are rarely graced with the presence of such illustrious sports classics. However, there is hope that one day we might be the owner of one of these fine, ferocious fighter jets. That hope lies within the confines of Corvette Mike which currently holds a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette for sale for $169,000.

Originally, this was an L71 car, and while it has a 427ci V8 under the hood, it’s not the factory-original mill. Before you start thinking that was a bad move, Jeff says on the dyno it’s making 525-horsepower, so the C3 can really scoot. Plus, it’s rolling on 18-inch wheels and has been lowered slightly, but the suspension is pretty much all original.

While not all C3 Corvettes are highly attractive, the 1968 is arguably one of the better-looking model years for the sports car. Still, some people have managed to royally screw up when they’re trying to capitalize off the Chevy’s aesthetics. Thankfully, Jeff honed in on what makes it look good, then accentuated that further. The hue of the blue paint paired with chrome trim and a red leather interior just looks undeniably wonderful. Even more amazing, Jeff did the paint and everything else in his garage, rather than sending the car out to a shop.

  1971 Oldsmobile 442 Clone Restomod: Classic Muscle Car Style Meets Modern Features When it comes to classic cars, there are two main kinds of enthusiasts. One that likes an all original rarity and another that can appreciate a car for its individual characteristics. Whether or not you are an Oldsmobile fan or not there is not denying the impact that the brand made on the muscle car era. The 442 was a beast of a car that could absolutely hold its own against the Chevelles and GTOs of the time. However performance peaked in the early 1970s and the 1970 model year would go down in history as one of the most capable years for the 442.
