The greatest thing about picking up your own wheels is being able to do whatever you’d like to the car. Although some may disagree (the whole stock versus custom debate) there’s absolutely no denying the wrench time on this 1963 C2 Corvette has made a superb vehicle, as spotted by Corvette Blogger.
The build master is Ron Soboury, and he’s tallied up quite the laundry list for this 1963 Corvette. The 638 hp LS9 V8 under the hood has earned it the “Black Widow” name, but there’s plenty more to love other than the immense power. A T56 six-speed manual gearbox dumps power to the nine-inch Ford rear end.
The body has been completely redone using a Signature Edition TIG welded tube chassis. To fit the huge Mickey Thompson SR rubber in the rear, the rear was widened with mini tubs, creating the hunkered down look. It also looks like it’s ready to pounce at a moment’s notice.
For the interior, it’s a mix of new old, done in an extremely tasteful matter. Red accents are found throughout the cabin, and look delightful around the original gauges.
The Mecum listing proclaims $300,000 has been invested into the car. We can only hope someone recognizes the amount of work gone into this build.
