Having had a frame-off restoration, this 1956 Chevrolet Corvette emerged fully customized, with seemingly just the right amount of brightwork dancing off the fresh, deep black paint, headlined by ultra-reflective 18-inch Boyd Coddington wheels. A 375/600 HP LS3 Chevrolet V-8 engine with Doug Thorley headers is nestled under the hood, backed by a new Tremec TKO500 5-speed manual transmission and a narrowed Moser 9-inch rear end.

The Corvette has just the right stance with improved ride and drive qualities, and the ability to handle the power from the LS3, a lot of thought effort was put into the chassis. The custom front suspension is by Jim Meyers Racing, while Flaming River provided the power rack-and-pinion steering system. A 4-bar setup with aluminum coilover shocks featuring adjustable mounting points was installed with Wilwood power-assisted 4-wheel disc brakes. Grip is courtesy of Michelin high performance tires. Like the rest of the car, the interior was completely refurbished in red with Al Knoch custom leather Corvette racing seats highlighted in a beautiful quilted pattern. The carpeting is also red and protected by red "Corvette" branded floormats. The dashboard, painted red below the red pad, black on top flowing under the windshield out to the cowl, features custom white-faced Auto Meter Phantom gauges. The 15-inch steering wheel, wrapped in red leather with a polished center section, is perched on an adjustable chrome steering column. A custom Bluetooth sound system allows for streaming of some personal favorites while cruising.
