Original Design of the 1957 GM Corvette® Roadster
Vette Lovers all over the world has seen an iconic 1957 Corvette® at one time or another in their lifetime. That car’s picture seems to stick in your mind forever. Those iconic cars that rolled off the General Motors assembly line over 60 years ago, created a lot of Corvette® lovers and many high performance car enthusiasts all over the world.
The Exotic Vette SSX must be titled & registered as a “Replica” in most States, may at first glance remind you of the good old days when the early model Corvette® was introduced to the public.
However there are some striking differences in body shape, overall design, frame, structural make-up, comfort & performance.
Sure, the basic body style created the building blocks in our minds for this completely custom body. We re-designed it from front to back and now fabricate production bodies for fully assembled custom ordered cars. We also imagineered some custom performance-oriented changes that make this a brand new car, suitable for any car guy or car gal who really sees the difference in this unique high performance car. We created what we call:
NEW EXOTIC VETTE SSX.
A front/side view of our Standard Exotic Vette SSX is the first prototype used to let Buyers see the high quality, hand-crafted Exotic SSX.
MORE COMFORTABLE – with 5 inches more interior space &
more leg-room than any original ’57 Corvette®.
BETTER HANDLING – with state-of-the-art high tech frame, independent front suspension system, modern shocks, fat tires, & new custom wheels.
QUICKER & FASTER brand new GM Performance Parts engine and drive train – New Corvette® power, now available for the public. (smallest engine offered has 430 HP!!
SAFER – more efficient braking system, improved body construction, modern steering controls & custom twin roll bars.
MORE FUN TO DRIVE – than the old original cars or re-built cars on the old frame that uses stock OEM parts, & 60 year old technology.
PRODUCTION MANAGER’S PERSPECTIVE
Some say a Vette is a Vette. Usually these kinds of remarks come from Ford or MOPAR owners. Anyone who loves the original GM Corvettes® old or new – will love owning and driving one of our SSX Vette models. After being in the custom car and restoration business some 40+ years Mr. Bob Alford, the designer and manager of production for Exotic says, there are a lot of folks who don’t understand the concept of custom car, but wait until you see this brand new modern Exotic Vette SS-X!
A custom car is just that, something that is significantly different than when it started out. Thousands of car guys and gals have tried to use Hot Rod Shops or body-kits to build or re-build old-style Corvettes® and other models. But many just gave up after months or years of trying. Car magazine editors have guessed that more than 1,000 old, partially-built hot rods or old “car kits” are just setting idle, less than half-finished, in storage buildings and garages!
