The Roadster Shop’s Custom 1962 Corvette C1RS

This lovely 1962 Corvette was built by The Roadster Shop and shown at the Goodguys PPG Nationals in Columbus, Ohio. The beautiful vintage made quite an impression on the judges and crowd. Dubbed the C1RS, you can see some original parts remain, but just about ever part on the body has been custom built, from the cool hand formed hood to the clean cut windshield. Under the hood you'll find a LS7 engine that makes an incredible 618 horsepower and 640 foot pounds of torque. The Z06 engine then is mated with a T-56 transmission, also big Brembo brakes and black powder coated rims. While the C1RS was technically a show car, the custom Crovette smoked the 31 competitors at Goodguy Nationals and took the crown, how about that!
