Overhauled ’57 Corvette

Chip FooseOverhaulin’ on the TLC Network is airing a new episode this evening featuring a 1957 Corvette. Like the previous Corvette episode, you’ll either love it or hate it. There doesn’t seem to be any middle road for Chip Foose when it comes to him redesigning the American classic sportscar. I am a fan of the show, but I tend to cringe whenever I see the “A Team” yank an original engine and replace it with a crate motor. No photos have yet surfaced of the Overhauled 1957 Corvette, yet one post on CorvetteForum.com claims the following: “Now that the cat is out of the bag, except for the steering wheel and matching engine trim (you’ll see), the ’57 is very nice and the brakes are to die for.” Tonight’s show is titled “Roadies Stole My ‘Vette!” The 1957 Corvette has been in Carl’s family for 46 years. But Carl and his wife are too busy with their family and business. Meanwhile, the Corvette sits in the garage, waiting for the time and money that will one day restore it to its original “cool”. The new episode will appear Tuesday night at 9pm EST. Source: TLC.com via CorvetteForum.com

    I watched this episode from 2006. It was a ’57 corvette. Perhaps Chip did another episode with a 1967 Corvette later.

    Thanks for visiting!
