1968 Chevrolet “Corvelle” is a Corvette Trapped in a Chevelle’s Body [video]

Currently for sale by RK Motors, this is far more than just a 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle. True, it might look like a mild restomod, but under that shiny blue body is a 2007 Corvette chassis and a modern LS2 powerplant.

The 6.0L LS2 V8 puts out 400-hp and 400 lb-ft of torque and runs all the factory fuel injection, traction control, cruise control, etc. To make it a show-worthy engine bay, plenty of blue carbon fiber trim pieces were made to look as if they were installed at the factory. In addition, tons of components were polished to a brilliant shine.

For the body, every panel was block sanded to achieve a flawless surface and painted a two-tone blue pearl metallic paint job, essentially a pairing of the LeMans Blue that was available on the ’68 Chevelle and the ’07 Corvette.

And naturally, with the vehicle sporting a Corvette chassis, Corvette 18- and 19-inch wheels are bolted on. In addition, the Z51-spec suspension and brakes are fully intact. The only major aftermarket piece to the entire project is a set of long-tube headers that lead out to a custom dual exhaust.
