Default C1-RS '62 Vette built by the Roadster Shop

1962 Corvette "C1-RS" built by the Roadster Shop

This one has been hard to keep under wraps. It is in the final stages of assembly and figured that the Lateral-G crowd would like to get a look at it. This is what we have been up to for the past 9 months.


This is what we started with.... so it shouldn't piss off too many Corvette purists.

This car was also used to design the new Roadster Shop / RS Performance C1 Corvette production chassis that is now available.

Begining to layout the frame design on the chassis table.

Man you guys have an awesome shop.

I like the recess in the door of the charger or superbird. Neat idea

Rough mock up to determine ride height and stance




Body sitting on the chassis table to determine the ride height before the chassis was built.

Clay mock up, begining to lay out the new rear body line off the wheel opening.



A little further along in the sculpting process. The stock bumper recesses, tail light holes, and license plate have been filled in fiberglass to completely redesign the rear of the car. The rear corners have been brought out and sharpened for a mroe aggressive look. We have also wrapped the line off the rear wheel opening into a rear spoiler.
