We are the home of the 1956 Chevrolet Corvette RestoMod!

Welcome to Web Wednesday! Your weekly digital outlet to all things DYNAMIC CORVETTES!
Last week on Web Wednesday, we showed the 1963 Corvette RestoMod body getting placed onto it’s new SRIII chassis, but I failed to post some pictures of the engine and transmission installation. So here they are…
Some modification needed to be made to the transmission to allow it to properly mount. Ed and Brian had to cut off an un-needed mounting fin from the transmission case. Once the transmission was modified, it set in it’s new home perfectly. Afterwards, Brian took it home to install his chrome accessory pulleys and such over the weekend.
Al is making some more great progress on the 1954 Corvette! After gathering up all of the exterior moldings and trim, he started to fit and attach the trim to insure that the body lines flow perfectly with the trim. Once all of the body work has been completed, they will roll the vehicle into the paint booth, completely mask off the engine compartment, small holes, and cockpit, then apply a liberal coat of slick sand primer.
This 1961 Corvette came in a few weeks ago with leaks and engine idling issues. The leaks were all over the engine. Valve covers, oil pan, timing cover, rear main. Everything needed replacement. We found another leak coming from the steering gear box.
The engine did not want to idle when hot, which we found that the carbs were in terrible condition and needed to be refreshed and tuned.
After repairing all of the leaks, rebuilding and tuning the carbs, the 1961 Corvette has gone back home to its owner!
The 1962 Corvette has left the building! This was a great project. We completely removed all of the old “baby blue” paint from the body, quickly got to work on straightening out the body lines, followed by 2 coats of primer, a lot of sanding, then finally base coat / clear coat. Last Friday, the owner came by and picked up his “black beauty” and thoroughly enjoyed it over the weekend.

More progress on the upcoming 1963 Corvette RestoMod! Corey and Steve have been working diligently on the body to make sure everything is perfect before we move ahead with primer. A new radiator core support has come in for an updated larger capacity aluminum radiator to cool that LS3 efficiently. Pictured below is Corey skim coating the passenger side of the vehicle and then sanding to make it all perfectly flush.
Meanwhile, on the mechanical side of the shop. Ed and Gary have been lending a hand to Brian to get the engine/transmission combo installed in the new rolling chassis. Once the powertrain was installed, Brian wanted to test fit the body. They rolled the chassis over to the paint shop, and slowly lowered the body onto the new frame. After squeezing and shoe-horning the body on, she sat down nice and fits very well!
We also discovered that the wheels from Brian’s 2015 Corvette fit pretty well underneath the 1963 Corvette RestoMod!
Last week I mentioned that the 1976 Corvette was going home soon and the day came Monday. The owner arrived in the afternoon, we discussed everything we did and went over his last invoice. Needless to say, he was very happy with the end result.
Check out the video below to watch the owner start her up and drive away!
The 1962 Corvette is ready for delivery and she looks gorgeous! Switching to black was the way to go! We completely repainted and rebuilt the body on this car. The owner brought the car, 6 boxes of parts, and a dream. That dream was to get the car back together, in black, and on the road so he may pass it along to his family in great shape.
I think we made his dream a reality.
The 1954 is continuing to make progress with Al everyday fitting and sanding. He has started to install the chrome exterior moldings and make sure they fit perfectly before moving ahead with primer.
