MODERN LT-1, 8 SPEED AUTO, UPGRADED SUSPENSION, WILWOOD, BOTH TOPS, HIGH END!

You're looking at a car that has no equal. This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Pro-Touring is the kind of restomod that takes the ionic style and adds everything you could want. So while you're marveling at the performance of a modern C7 Grand Sport V8 with a fully independent suspension, and enjoying the comfort of leather-clad interior, you'll also be winning awards in a unique build that has been customized over every inch.

A car like this takes time to get looking so stunning. It was part of a nearly three-year professional frame-off restoration/transformation. And since there have been only about 800 miles put on it since completion, it radiates with a look that tells everyone it's in the highest echelon of quality. It has such an exciting look that the color is even called Bombshell Red. Plus, the addition of the white side coves gives this kind of two-tone presentation that made the first generation Corvette a legend. Like any good 1950s machine there was also plenty of brightwork. Everything from the intricate form-fitting split bumpers, to the delicate trim that runs the full-length of the front fender - it all has the mirror-like quality of serious investment. All the details ... Please ask for the full description.

Description

MODERN LT-1, 8 SPEED AUTO, UPGRADED SUSPENSION, WILWOOD, BOTH TOPS, HIGH END!

You're looking at a car that has no equal. This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette Pro-Touring is the kind of restomod that takes the ionic style and adds everything you could want. So while you're marveling at the performance of a modern C7 Grand Sport V8 with a fully independent suspension, and enjoying the comfort of leather-clad interior, you'll also be winning awards in a unique build that has been customized over every inch.

A car like this takes time to get looking so stunning. It was part of a nearly three-year professional frame-off restoration/transformation. And since there have been only about 800 miles put on it since completion, it radiates with a look that tells everyone it's in the highest echelon of quality. It has such an exciting look that the color is even called Bombshell Red. Plus, the addition of the white side coves gives this kind of two-tone presentation that made the first generation Corvette a legend. Like any good 1950s machine there was also plenty of brightwork. Everything from the intricate form-fitting split bumpers, to the delicate trim that runs the full-length of the front fender - it all has the mirror-like quality of serious investment. All the details are correct and award-worthy, right down to the emblem on the trunk. But this one also isn't bashful about being something special. You see it in smaller detail like the upgraded headlights and Kindig-It flush door handles. There are even larger giveaways to this car's added performance with the well-integrated quad exhaust tips, and not only do the US Mags wheels have an awesome pattern, but they are staggered at 19/20 inches front/rear to give you a great stance while fitting modern performance tires. But of course, the easiest way to recognize this Corvette's restomod nature is the custom hood that borrowed design elements from the C7, like the hood vents and Plexiglas window.

A car like this has all the right features. So you get a snug-fitting folding soft top for those times when you just need to get out of the weather, and there's also a color-matched hardtop to give you an attractive coupe-like profile. Of course, on a C1 like this, the best way to go is with no roof at all. The full tan interior is just as fresh as the exterior, and it offers a timeless premium look that you'll want to share with the world. The upgraded leather seats fit so perfectly between the C1's iconic waterfall tonneau, but those modern buckets will hold you better than anything out of the '60s ever could. There's a true attention to detail where the supple materials also have custom stitching in the seatbacks that match the floormats. And more than just look fantastic, there are plenty of great upgrades like power windows and a modern AM/FM/XM/CD touchscreen stereo with Bluetooth. Plus, cold-blowing air conditioning means you get to say feeling as cool as you look with the top down. Like all good Corvettes, this is a driver-oriented car. So the upgraded flat-bottom sports steering wheel has a chrome and tan style that fits with the interior, and beyond that is a full upgraded Dakota Digital gauge package.

While the upgraded motor is already on display through the custom hood window, we know you'll also love lifting it at the car shows to give everyone a closer look. This 6.2-liter LT1 is a Generation V fuel-injected V8 that's so modern, it's still used brand new Chevy sports cars today. It has been installed with care, and it makes this powerhouse appears like the factory installed it. Besides just looking great, you're going to love driving this one. The factory Grand Sports were rated at 460 horsepower right out of the box, and this is even mated to the C7's 8L90-E eight-speed automatic transmission. It gives an ideal setup where you have the best ratios for performance, and it also easily shifts into an overdrive gear for cruising. Out on the road, this handles like no C1 that you know. The suspension is a full custom setup tubular A-arms up front and a C4-style rear. So not only do you have a first-gen Corvette with a fully-independent sports suspension, but also this has the best in components, like QA1 adjustable coilovers at every wheel. Plus, the four-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and Michelin Pilot Sport tires bring the full driving experience of this classic in line with some of the most modern Corvettes out there.

Complete with restoration photos, this is the kind of full custom build that rarely levels its mastermind's hands. So you can either grab this opportunity now or spend a lifetime chasing it. Call today!!!
