First production car with a fibreglass body 1953 Chevrolet Corvette C1

When you think of motoring in 1950’s America, it’s likely that lashings of chrome, tail fins and bodywork for miles will come to mind. It’s fair to assume lightweight materials won’t feature anywhere on the list of all of the things that make up mid-20th century Americana.

1963 Chevrolet Corvette C2 Resto-Mod 510bhp

Choosing whether to restore or resto-mod an older corvette isn’t always easy. While wrestling with the merits of bringing back an original versus tampering with a classic, the final decision might depend on several factors. Often it’s dictated by the condition and history of the vehicle. After considering his options on a dilapidated ’63 split window, John Daniels’ direction was fairly obvious. Through his friend John Vestri of Vestri’s Vettes, a firm specializing in resurrecting non-original donor corvettes, he’d found a suitable project car in Arizona that had a good body and interior. But, the original running gear was gone, and a newer Chevy 350 crate engine was in the engine bay. lacking any numbers-matching parts, or any significant provenance, doing a resto-mod on this beleaguered corvette was basically a given.
