Build Process

Each custom Corvette includes the advanced engineered hinges, latches and weather seals of a modern C6.

Once the most important styling aspects of the C2 models were selected, Karl Kustom’s body shop teams went to work to hand-fabricate the body to those classic parameters. Finite alterations were painstakingly performed on the prototype and the result is perfection in styling.

Factory door frames are retained and the new body panels are reattached to the platform using modern epoxies and factory-equivalent fasteners. The drivetrain and mechanicals are all factories GM stock.

Karl Kustom redesigned the Roadster’s tonneau lid to match the 1967 Corvette Convertible body, yet maintained the convertible fit and function of OEM power-top sequencing and operable trunk.
