You can buy a lot for $599,950, including pretty much any supercar that’s not a Bugatti, Pagani, or a Koenigsegg. Alternatively, you could spend it on this, a modified 1963 Chevrolet Corvette 63RS Custom Split-Window Coupe.
This supercar-priced restomod comes from The Roadster Ship in Illinois and is currently for sale from Park Place Ltd in Bellevue, Washington. Modifications made to the car are extensive and start with the engine.
Fitted beneath the skin is a Wegner Motor Sports 6.8-liter LS3 V8 that’s been supercharged and churns out 817 HP and 807 lb-ft (1,094 Nm) of torque. Mated to this engine is a strengthened four-speed automatic transmission, with the car also sporting stainless steel headers and a 3-inch exhaust with Borla mufflers.
Extensive alterations have also been made to the chassis and suspension and include a 1.25-inch splined sway bar, enlarged lower and upper control arms, and more. There are also enlarged brakes.
The exterior looks gorgeous and includes black Forgeline wheels with Nitto drag radial tires. There is also a flush-mounted molding-less windshield, flush-mounted molding-less rear glass, a custom grille, LED taillights, and distinctive front and rear bumpers.
The upgrades continue in the interior. There is bespoke leather and suede surfaces throughout the cabin as well as unique seats with race harnesses. Drivers can also use an ‘outlaw’ shifter and paddle shifters and grip on to a three-spoke Momo steering wheel.
The car has covered just 53 miles (85 km) since being restored and modified. Be sure to check out this website dedicated to the car to read more.
