Corvette Of The Day: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Resto Mod

This striking Corvette Resto Mod is a testament to Mike Coletta’s expertise, creating a stunning driving machine suitable for both show events and exhilarating road trips. Coletta is a renowned figure among Corvette enthusiasts, celebrated for his multiple award-winning restorations and the creation of remarkable hand-built resto mods.

This Corvette was constructed with unwavering attention to detail and without any budgetary constraints. It sits atop a new Corvette Correction C2 chassis, boasting enhanced front and rear suspension, power rack-and-pinion steering, and 4-wheel power disc brakes. The Dawson chassis is designed to accommodate various Chevrolet powerplants, with this particular build featuring Chevrolet’s all-aluminum sixth-generation LS3 engine producing 430 HP, paired with a GM 4L65E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission.

The exterior maintains the iconic appearance of the ‘63-vintage Corvette Split Window Coupe, emphasizing its timeless classic design in a handsome Silver Metallic finish. Thoughtful custom touches include factory-style side exhaust and C5 chromed aluminum wheels. Inside, the interior, expertly crafted by Al Knoch, is adorned in beautiful red leather and incorporates modern comforts such as Vintage Air, a Bluetooth sound system, and cruise control—an unusual but welcomed addition for a high-performance machine of this caliber.
