Up for sale in our Tampa showroom is this one of a kind 1988 Custom Corvette entitled Bella Elan. This incredible car is the brain-child of its current owner who had a dream to build his very own 1930's art-deco French luxury-style dream car. 6,000 fabrication hours later, we have the Bella Elan. The Chassis of this car was custom fabricated and engineered with the front and rear subframes from a 1988 Corvette C4 (titled as a 1988 Corvette). The suspension is also derived from a C4 Corvette, as well as the brakes and steering. QA1 fully adjustable coil-overs were added for better performance and handling. The main body section was derived primarily from a 2001 Audi TT with door beams and a added roll-bar The fenders were derived from a 1937 Chevy, and rest of the body was custom fabricated with reinforced fiberglass honeycomb core. Finishing it off is a set of solid finish Teak side skirts and many layers of varnish and urethane clear coat to make it shine. The body is covered in premium clear/base coat Golden Globe finish, and polished to a pristine shine. Powering this beautiful car is a GM LS1 5.7L V8 paired to a 4L60E 4-Speed automatic transmission, and 2.59:1 limited slip differential from a Corvette. The custom interior features black power/heated leather seats, power windows, power door locks, tilt and telescopic steering with a custom Nardi mahogany steering wheel. Dakota Digital instruments have been installed for an upgraded and customized feel, along with a 100w 6-speaker stereo system with CD, Blutooth, Satellite, and USB features. Keeping you cool on those hot summer days is a full Vintage Air system blowing ice cold air. This incredible car turns heads everywhere it goes and has always been a great hit at all the car shows. This will be an outstanding addition to a car collection of any size. To see 100+ HD pictures and videos of this awesome 1988 Custom Corvette Bella Elan, please visit GatewayClassicCars.com.
