What can we say… Wow this is one of the nicest Corvettes we have ever seen, the bold move to mix and match classic styling with new technology has really paid off. This 1959 Corvette is running some top of the range suspension and brakes as well as a massive V8

This 1959 Chevrolet Corvette really stands out in a crowd, the combination of Matte and gloss paint normally makes people look away but Palmers Customs really got the lines right.

The more you look at this car the more you can appreciate the thousands of man hours that have gone into it. Custom body features: new bumpers and front end grill, new trim, custom air diffuser, crazy custom  exhaust, custom dash and gauges in the center and the engine cover, also note the way the seats have been lowered and fitted into the body.

The engine bay has had the most work, getting that clean show car look while punching out a massive 750hp from the worked LS9 (Thats right) mated up to a T-56 6 speed box.

NOw this is a street driven car which is why we love it so much, it is fitted with Self Leveling Airbag suspension which means you can get that stanced out look but still make it out of your driveway.

This allows the owner to run big wheels, 19s in the front and 20inch in the rear wrapped in Hankook rubber.
