2003 Corvette Modded to Look Like a 1962 Vette

At first glance, this car looks a lot like a 1962 Corvette. But look for another second, and you’ll realize that something isn’t quite right. What you’re actually looking at is a 2003 Corvette Z06 that’s been fitted with components to make it look like a ’62. The car is a very rare hardtop Retro-Vette conversion by CRC, who custom fabricates and installs¬†carbon fiber body parts to restyle modern Corvettes.

While the front and rear might be retro, the drivetrain and interior are anything but. Under the hood is a modded LS6 engine with a Magnuson blower, capable of outputting 550 horsepower. Inside, it’s been left largely as a 2003 model, though¬†its premium John Caravaggio leather and carbon fiber details class up the joint.

If you’re interested in this highly unusual ‘Vette, you can bid on it at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction, which runs from September 25-27, 2014. There’s no reserve on this car, so it will definitely be sold. Coincidentally, if you’re looking for an actual 1962 Corvette, they’ve got one of those for sale too – though it’s a convertible, not a hardtop.
