Default Restored '54 with an LS1

Read it here: Restored '54 with an LS1

It's a beautiful restoration, especially considering it was crashed into a tree. Apart from the drive-train, the rest of the car is a period correct restoration in a stunning shade of blue. Lovely car.

Thanks for linking the article. I'd like to do a '60 Corvette with an LS9. Now that would be fun!

Now that's a classy and conservative restomod. Much better IMO than a '53-'55 style body stretched to fit over a C5 chassis with the tell-tale late-model windshield.

I believe WOULD have to modify the seating arrangements for enough room, and maybe fit a smaller diameter steering wheel.
