Corvette Central Kicks Off 1963 Split-Mod Restoration Project

Corvette Central and Chris Petris, the duo behind the C4 Cutaway Corvette, have teamed up again to bring together a real cool project called the “Split Mod”. Essentially, it’s the restoration of a severely rusted 1963 Corvette Coupe. Instead of the traditional matching-numbers restoration, which would be somewhat difficult considering the car has no motor or transmission, the rebuild will result in the creation of a fun, drivable Midyear Corvette. The project is also going to be the subject of a book and so you can count on some great tips and advice offered along the way.
