Hot Wheels: Custom Corvette Build Video At The V8 Speed and Resto Shop 1964 C2 Restomod

348 Views Uploaded 6 months ago

We've all wanted a full-size version of our favorite Hot Wheels car, and this custom 1964 Chevrolet Corvette built at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop makes that dream come true! The restomod Corvette build features custom paint, performance suspension upgrades from Global West, new disc brakes, and a Holley Sniper EFI system install on the Edelbrock 350 crate engine. The main part of the project was repainting the Corvette restomod in custom colors. The goal was to give the overall appearance of a full-size Hot Wheels car, a car that is fun to look at and drive! Custom C2 Corvettes can be controversial, as changing a C2 Corvette from original can hurt it's collector car market value. However, this 1964 Corvette did not have it's original engine any longer, and the exterior and interior had been changed from their original colors as well. This allowed for some freedom of expression to build a custom Corvette with a new paint job all it's own. Repainting a Corvette requires a lot of steps to do the job properly, weather you want something custom or a stock Corvette repaint.

The V8 Speed and Resto Shop paint department repaints the Corvette in Ermine White, then lays out the 3 color custom stripe design. We mask off the stripes and custom paint the 'Vette in our downdraft Blowtherm paint booth, and spray a final clear coat. The Chevrolet Corvette is truly America's Sports Car, and we feel this custom C2 Corvette will excite any vintage sports car enthusiast.
