We’ve had the opportunity to work on this car before and we’re grateful for the encore. This time, a full custom interior was installed and delivered in April. The car just keeps getting better and better.
This project was a collaborative interior build between BlueSky and Gillin Interiors in Middletown NY. BlueSky did all the mock up work and coordinated the build including final assembly. Gil and his crew wrapped everything in gorgeous Hydes Leather. We were looking for a modern look with a touch of classic styling. The interior panels are from Modern Classics Interiors while the seats were 100% Gillin. Gauges are from Dakota Digital RTX. The interior is accented with bits of trim from Ring Brothers and Restomod Air.
Finally, the engine bay was upgraded from polished aluminum to chrome playing for that extra depth and reflection!
This car has already won numerous awards. No doubt, a bigger trophy case will be required!
This 89 Corvette came to us torn, tattered and bone stock. We started by installing coil overs at all four corners to give it a great stance. To add to the stance, we had a custom set of Boze Forged 3 piece Acute style wheels built to run some oversized Falken Azenis tires. The original engine was seized so we installed a 400hp Blue Print 383 stroker motor fed by an Edelbrock injection system and singing through a full stainless exhaust. The body was in really nice shape only needing a few repairs. We then laid a beautiful pearl white paint job with a tri-tone stripe that extends front to rear. The original blue interior was replaced with brand new black leather. The owner is thrilled to have his baby back in his garage.
Another project done and on its way home! We are super proud of this one! Our great customer trusted us to bring it back to OEM spec in its Aztec Bronze paint! They originally wanted it in black but they trusted us on going with the original color (no pressure!?!) Fortunately they’re happy! And why not, this car looks really distinctive. The customer will finish the restoration at home. We’re truly grateful for the confidence they showed in us. And we can’t wait to see this classic from 1966 cruising the streets and maybe dazzling folks at some car shows this summer!
