1963 Corvette Resto Mod, The Punisher, Ultimate Dream Machine.

THE PLATFORM
The platform had to be special for this project and there was no question, the
bones of this project would be the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split window coupe,
the Holy Grail of the Corvette family and GMs perfect example of style and performance.
This particular example had humble beginnings with a small block, power glide
transmission, power windows, and power drum brakes. A body with only slight
damage to the front driver fender. It seemed fitting the beginnings would be simple
to make the transformation into an over the top build. Other than the body, every
part installed on this vehicle from motor, to brakes, to transmission, to every nut
and bolt is new, everything.

THE DESIGN

With a name like The Punisher, this project needed to look like it meant business
with aggressive styling and stance. Designer Mark Pierson and his team at GodSpeed
Rides wanted this creation to look as if it could take on any vehicle on the planet.
The industrial resto mod theme was cultivated by a mixture of satin black, billet
aluminum, and stainless steel with a perfect mixture of the right colors. Socket head
bolts carry the theme throughout the inside and outside of the vehicle providing a
retro modern flare. This vehicle features many one off billet pieces specially machined
for this project.

THE DETAILS
The builders trademark is simple, clean and sanitary. Every part of this vehicle
inside the cabin, under the hood, body, frame, and every system was held to the
same standard of excellence. Hide every wire possible, all fluid lines run with
perfection, keep as many wires and hoses hidden as possible. Two years and 2,500
hours were spent building this retro themed Corvette, put together with some of
the best talent in automotive building and the best parts available. No compromise.

THE BODY
If you like sharp lines check out this body. Laser straight lines show the over 1,000
hours spent in massaging this body into a work of art. Dwayne Brown is so skilled
at perfecting fiberglass. The lines are sharp because he knows how to make a
perfect line and it shows. The body is all original fiberglass and panels except for
the 1.5 inch widened rear quarters necessary to accommodate the 345/25-20 rear
tires. The rear lower valance has been smoothed and molded for a seamless body.
A slightly raised license plate cut out, one off billet taillight bezels, and a custom
aluminum exhaust treatment, make the rear of this Corvette look like a million
dollar supercar. LED and HID help to give the front end a more modern element
with a blacked out grill and LED turn signals. Countless hours were spent tucking
and narrowing the front and rear bumpers to fit the body like a glove. The edges
on the bumpers are just as sharp as the body. The details on this car do not stop,
down to the custom black door handles with rivets matching the theme. Designed
by GodSpeed Rides, the side rockers finish the side of the vehicle off with tasteful
enhancement. The one off billet aluminum hood trays were a result of months of
thought and design to create the perfect replacement to the trademark 63 Corvette trays.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT
In a no compromise build like this, the engine compartment deserves respect.
Who does not want to open up the hood of a high end vehicle and see the beauty
of power. Pop open the black anodized billet aluminum hood latches, raise the hood,
and right off the bat you find yourself staring at one of the cleanest engine compartments
you have ever seen. The firewall is smooth and void of all contours of the original.
Countless hours were spent hand fabricating both inner fenders to hide all suspension
components. The underside of the hood is finished to perfection and is painted in
the same quality as the body of the car. Nestled right in the middle is a brand new
LS3 crate motor courtesy of GM performance. 525HP of pure power lies within.
Barely a wire is seen as you open the hood. All A/C, brake, and heater lines piped
in and meticulously routed via AN fittings. A one off radiator support was constructed
to house the oversized DeWitt radiator with twin fans. The headlight and wiper motor
is courtesy of Detroit Speed for modern operation. ABS brake master cylinder,
billet aluminum hydraulic clutch reservoir, and Resto Mod air, bulkhead a/c and
heater fitting decorate the firewall. If this was not enough, two easily removable
inner fender panels allow access to the AGM battery and the high pressure brake
pump. Beautiful polished stainless steel headers by Ultimate travel into a 2.5 inch
stainless exhaust, which in and of itself is a work of art.

FRAME AND SUSPENSION
At the center of the cars frame is a Tremec 6-speed spinning, a custom aluminum
driveshaft and a currie rear end. The SRIII chassis provides the main frame of
this over the top street machine using all Corvette C6 components. Monster 14 inch
Wildwood brakes provide all the stopping power this high performance machine
could require. Obviously no dream machine like this could go without the best shoes.
One off custom wheels built by Nutek wheels 19x9 and 20x13 handle the Nito Invo
rubber. Lets just say the 345.25-20 rear tires even made a Dodge Viper jealous.

THE INTERIOR
Open the doors and you will be greeted by a completely custom one-off interior
done by GodSpeed Rides that is just as unique as the rest of the build. Those who
see it for the first time just say WOW. What better color to choose than a rich bright
red leather to make that often, sought for pop. A one piece leather top fits perfect
and keeps with the clean, no nonsense design of the car. The rear cargo area is
something special and all custom fabricated at GodSpeed. All hand formed panels
create a unique surrounding with leather, hand formed pressed grills, a large illuminated
ARC 5 channel amplifier in the rear with 8 inch ARC Subwoofers on either side.
The door panels are something special and were also hand fabricated to create a
3 dimensional look with multiple textures. Features include socket head bolts
individually threaded into the billet aluminum truss work, hand formed pressed
grills to house the pair of ARC high end audio speakers, a hand formed arm rest,
an ultra-cool mixture of colors to tie the interior of the car to the exterior.

The dash board was neatly organized to house many crucial components. The
gauges and climate control for the A/C are courtesy of Dakota Digital, a Gen IV
A/C system by Vintage Air controls the climate, a fuse panel by American Autowire
is uniquely visible when the glove compartment is opened for easy inspection, one
off A/C vents give just that perfect retro look, Kenwood wireless Blue Tooth unit
streams music directly from your Smart phone, custom billet aluminum switches
control the power windows and locks. What you do not see is the main security
system which allows for locking, unlocking of vehicle, auto start, and GPS tracking
via your Smart phone along with monitoring some auto diagnostics. Push button
operation of the E-stop emergency brake, Lingfelter pedals, Ididit column and
Billet Specialty wheel finish the cockpit.
