At first glance, 1uvaKind might seem like a standard
interpretation of the vette rod/replica concept combining a 1958
Corvette style with a modern Corvette drive train. Honoring the
original, 1uvaKind is finished in the classic Signet Red, boasts
custom red leather interior, and a particular focus on classic style
in many of the esthetic choices.
But behind the classic facade is performance technology. It
boasts an LS2 engine and GM Performance ECU. 1uvaKind is the only,
or at least one of very few, 1958 Corvettes to feature a C-5 drive
train with a 4L60E automatic transmission. From the round tube
chassis to the stainless steel exhaust to the modified torque tube
and related body modification this is all custom.
The gauges display
a 1/4 mile ET, 1/4 mile mph, 0-60, and a lot more. It features power
rack and pinion steering, adjustable aluminum coil over shocks,
Lokar shifter, climate control, Sony sound system, and keyless
Though a sure show stopper and with many talking points, the
bottom line is drivability. 1uvaKind was built to enjoy on the road
from a trip to the gulf club to a Sunday afternoon cruise.
