A well-executed restomod is all about the details – how does the paint play with the trim? What’s the stitching look like in the cabin? How does the engine sit under the hood? As it just so happens, this particular 1967 Chevy Corvette Custom Convertible ticks all those boxes and then some, and now, it’s headed to auction at no reserve.
This particular restomod was produced by Jeff Hayes Customs, a high-end builder known for turning out gorgeous show-stopping Chevy Corvettes. The build was completed in September of 2020, and it now hits the scene in gorgeous black paint matched with red accents. The Vette was fitted with a Haartz cloth convertible top, while the Schott Wheels add a staggered stance with 18-inchers in front and 20-inchers in the rear. Toyo redline tires make the traction.
Moving inside, we find a hand-stitched red leather interior, with a Lokar polished shifter in the center console, plus a chrome Ididit steering column and Billet Specialties steering wheel on the dash. Vintage Air was also called on for the heating and cooling this custom Chevy Corvette.
Motivating the 1967 Chevy Corvette Custom Convertible is a new GM LS3 V8 engine, which now feeds a 4L70E four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. The new engine also looks fantastic thanks to a silver finish and finned valve covers.
An Art Morrison Sport chassis provides the bones, while six-piston Wilwood brakes in front and four-piston Wilwood brakes in the rear clamp down on drilled and slotted rotors. Power steering rounds it out.
Now, this stunning 1967 Chevy Corvette Custom Convertible is headed to auction at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2021 event, set to take place January 16th through the 23rd. The Vette will be offered at no reserve.
