Car of the Week: 1959 Corvette Restomod

Posted by Jess Stoeckeler on

‘Paul Wolf has always had a fascination with first-generation Corvettes, and this 1959 restomod Corvette is the result of many decades of dreaming. The finished restomod Corvette employs an Art Morrison GT Sport chassis fortified with Wilwood disc brakes, a Ford 9-inch rear with 3.70 gears, 4L65E automatic overdrive transmission, and an LS3 crate engine belting out 487 hp at the flywheel. It is the magnificent set of Schott Accelerator wheels (19x8, front; 20x10, rear), however, that get heads turning and which required some custom rear wheel tubs to preserve those original body lines.’
