The Chevy Corvette has always been the home town hero in America, competing with European sport and super cars. The original C1 Corvette is no less a classic than any Ferrari from the same erra, but unlike those cars, it is one you can actually own, drive and love. That’s why we love that Corvette Corrections is from Josh and Andrew’s own home town of Seguin. They are building modern chassis for the beautiful classic C1 bodies that bring them up to modern power, handling and braking performance levels while keeping the insanely beautiful lines of the original body. It’s pure pleasure to provide some classic automotive photography for them.
This is one of their prototype cars. It is a 1962 C1 Vette packing a modern LS3 crate engine and painted in OSU Orange. The color is outrageous and we love it. It along with all the beautiful classic details and chrome just screams speed.
One of the fun things about a restomod car, beyond having a great looking classic car with modern power and handling, is the ability to mix and match the classic details with modern trim and comforts. The interior is upgraded and restored with lots of brushed aluminum trim and dials giving it a modern classic look. It’s a great blending of the past and present.
What would a classic car be without chrome?
The side vents on the C1 are some of the most iconic details of any car anywhere.
More chrome is found on the front, all beautifully restored. We love the double round head lights and all the curving shapes in the front fenders and hood.
The C1 had the start of the fins so many American cars had later on in the 60s and 70s. It’s a little more reserved and looks great as a result.
