One of the nicest cars we have produced. The combination of the magnetic red II paint, cream interior and more modern wheels has a stunning visual impact. This car boasts an LS2, Tremec 5 speed combination which in a sub 3,000 pound car means great performance. The top covers were custom designed to pay homage to the owners long service to his community.
1960 Red w/ White Coves Roadster
The Roman Red ’60 with Ermine White coves boasts an LS2, Tremec 6 speed transmission, with coilovers front and rear. Disc brakes with rack and pinion steering complete the performance picture. Include A/C, sound, and Sirius satellite radio and you have a car that is a driver’s paradise. This car is the ultimate in the classic iconic look with today’s technology as it is near impossible for the casual observer to recognize this is not exactly how it came from the factory.
1963 Sebring Silver SWC
The easily identifiable split window coupe with red interior, just like Shinoda drew it up all those years ago is a tribute to timeless design.

Note the custom designed top covers paying tribute to the customers Canadian heritage.
1958 Yellow Roadster
This Panama Yellow ’58 with the one year only charcoal interior was a great success story. The customer picked up this LS2/automatic beauty in Southern California and drove it to Portland, Oregon…no blips, no drips, no errors. You can imagine the owner driving this car; straw hat, Cohiba cigar, whipping by the Palmetto trees of the southeastern U.S.

1967 Red with Black Stinger Convertible
The red ’67 with black interior and the obligatory black contrasting stinger creates an enviable look. Once you add the side exhaust and wheels you complete the picture. Performance is compliments of an LS7, Tremec 5 speed, composite mono-leaf springs with QA1 shocks front and rear…and of course all of the creature comforts.
1954 Torch Red Roadster
This 1954 roadster was the original Vestris' Vette and boasts an LS6 with a Tremec six speed. This was the first C1 to have this combination back in 2003. The car was an immediate hit at Barrett-Jackson (Scottsdale) and launched the brand and the modern Corvette resto-mod era.
1966 Black Coupe
The “Coupester” is actually our customer Jeff’s design. On top of the usual performance and creature comfort upgrades, Jeff tasked us with three pages of custom features including; LEDs "frenched" into the bumpers for turn signals and backup lights, chrome fire extinguisher with matching brackets, functional hood scoop in the stinger and, we were pleased that Jeff allowed Vestris’ Vettes the opportunity to be the first company on the planet to install an LS7 automatic combo in any car.
1967 Sunfire Yellow
The Sunfire Yellow ’67 with “cashmere” stinger and matching interior in leather is the dyno test winner with the LS7, side exhaust combo producing over 500 RWHP!!! This equates to stratospheric power to weight ratio. New tech steering, brakes and suspension provide unmatched ride quality and performance in a classic StingRay package.
1959 Tuxedo Black and Inca Silver Roadster
This 59 may have been one of the most enjoyable cars to drive. Quick and comfortable with an iconic look and amazing wheels, the LS2/TKO500 combination made it extremely easy to drive.
Studebaker Golden Hawk
Studebaker as a company and the Golden Hawk specifically were in fact unique. This project was a little outside of the mission of the company but turned out to be an amazing vehicle. The Golden Hawk below features an LS2/4L60E drive train, with all updated suspension, brakes, steering, A/C, cooling and sound system. During a shakedown run this car was able to go toe to toe with a late model 911 on the mountain road to Idyllwild, California.
If you are interested in the looks of a classic Corvette with the ability to drive it anytime anywhere we provide upgrades that include a modern LS engine, suspension, brakes, sound system and that delivers the performance that you would expect in a modern Corvette, then Vestris’ Vettes is your classic resto-mod manufacturer!
