New Corvette with 53 Vette look!

Hello;

Has anyone seen this concept car? I saw it on a television program a few months ago. Being an old car fanatic, I liked what I saw. I have not seen or read about it since. If this ever becomes a reality..it's mine! Or, is there a company that makes the body panels and parts to build one from a new Vette?

Tom

if it's the white one on the C5 chassis, i saw it on the road in phoenix a couple weeks ago. it's a sweet car, but i think it's a one-of-one

Isn't it more or less just a lot of fiberglass bodystyling? I remember seeing pics of one on here but I dont know where that post is.

I'm pretty sure it is the white one. If it is this one though, its not a concept, its a custom built vehicle that a man had built for himself or maybe built himself. There is no ties to it being a concept. I am glad, cuz it looks like a pill of junk. Geezz this whole contrasting old with new styling is getting out of control and on my last nerves.

There are actually 32 being built by some fiberglass company. I actually saw one last weekend at the local NCRS meet. It was OK, but the rear looked way too big and the panel fit was not that great.

I was under the impression that is was an actual prototype from Corvette, but it obviously is not. I like it, goes with the retro theme like the '05 Mustang GT.

There is one in the Tampa Bay area...

These pics are from the NCRS Orlando show this January.









For a VERY informative look at this car, check out the owners story
about the ownership process. Interesting to say the least.
