If you want a 1967 Corvette convertible but don't want to worry about all the problems that come with owning a classic car, a Resto Mod like this one is the way to go. A proper Resto Mod is keeping the classic lines of the original model while fitting it with modern underpinnings, and this little red custom Corvette is an excellent example of how to do a Resto Mod right. If it weren't for the sporty wheels, a casual observer might even suspect it to be an original. It is most definitely not original, but oh so much better. With a Coffman Corvette chassis, the underside sports double-adjustable coilover shocks and calipers and rotors from a C6 Z06 to make it handle like a supercar. Nestled under the hood is a new 495 HP LS3 set up to look the part of an original L71 427/435 HP engine. Unless you look closely to see the fuel rails, you'd swear it was born there. Gone is the whiney 4-speed, replaced by a new smooth-shifting Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed overdrive transmission with a GM clutch.

The interior also received some upgrades, but it still looks factory fresh. The new chassis has rack-and-pinion steering, so a Flaming River tilt column now makes it easier for the driver to get in and out of the white leather bucket seats with headrests. A Dakota Digital RTX gauge cluster and clock replace the original outdated units. Even the radio has been updated with Bluetooth capability. A Vintage Air Gen IV climate control keeps the occupants comfortable. The original emergency brake lever made way for a pushbutton electronic unit, and switches on the console still control the power windows.

The factory headlight and wiper motors were never known for their reliability on these old classics, so Detroit Speed motor kits now control both. As you can see, the upgrades on this Corvette are modern amenities that make it much more enjoyable, safer and reliable to drive while still in keeping with the original design. It still wears all of the factory badging, trim and even side-pipes, but you can get in and have confidence driving it anywhere.
