While the new mid-engine C8 Corvette is hailed as a milestone by enthusiasts, there are a few people out there that prefer the original front-engine design. For those that want a classic Corvette with performance that isn't far off the latest model, this could be your answer — this 1963 split-window restomod. Built in 2019 by Jeff Hayes Customs, this Corvette spares no expense, from the engine bay to the chassis. A 540-horsepower GM LS3 backed by a 4L70E four-speed auto provides the go, while an Art Morrison chassis with multi-link rear and independent front suspension offers modern sports car handling, with Wilwood brakes front and rear bringing everything to a halt. 18-inch front and 20-inch rear tires wrapped in Toyo Redline tires give a nod to the '60s, and a white exterior over red leather interior make for a stunning color combo in this perfect mix of vintage and modern.
