Corvette Of The Day: 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Speedster
A 1 of 1 build known as the SSX Corvette
The Exotic Vette SSX is a one-of-a-kind, fully customized vehicle handcrafted by Exotic Vette Concepts. It began as a factory 1957 Corvette but underwent extensive modifications to become a unique Custom Speedster in 2017. The body was meticulously reshaped to accommodate a new tire and wheel package, resulting in a truly exceptional design. Drawing inspiration from the 1957 Corvette Super Sport Concept Show Car, the SSX embodies a captivating aesthetic.
Underneath its stunning exterior, the SSX boasts an Art Morrison G-Force racing chassis, powered by a Chevrolet LS3 V-8 engine and a 4L65E automatic transmission. Despite its powerful performance, the vehicle weighs a mere 2900lbs.
Inside the cockpit, racing harnesses secure occupants in faux-leather twin bucket seats, while full floor carpeting adds a touch of luxury. The cabin features modern amenities such as a Kenwood DDX touchscreen, GPS, and anti-theft system. The Flaming River tilt column, floor-mounted gear shift, and hidden antenna contribute to the SSX’s sleek and streamlined appearance.
Additional features include a hide-away license plate, 6 custom Exotic Dash gauges and Indicators, BF Goodrich 335/30ZR-18 G-force Rival design tires, and 18×12 American Racing wheels.
