Presented by Barrett-Jackson – This 1963 Corvette Split-Window Resto-Mod was completed in March 2021 by Jeff Hayes Customs. It started with a clean, original GM donor car and now features a brand-new LS3 Hot Cam engine with 540hp backed by a 4L70E automatic transmission. It sits on an Art Morrison sport chassis with front and rear sway bars, and has Wilwood brakes with 6-piston polished aluminum front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers, as well as drilled and slotted rotors at all four corners. The wheels are new Schott Mach 5 with custom red line tires. It is equipped with power steering, power windows, power hood, AM/FM Bluetooth stereo, and Vintage Air heat and air conditioning. The classic look of the mid-year Split-Window combined with the technology of the new chassis and new fuel-injected LS engine is outstanding. The red paint and the custom distressed leather Saddle interior are stunningly timeless.
