Only 1935 actual miles, 2003 50th Anniversary CRC Corvette convertible. 1961 conversion on new OEM Chassis
Classic Reflections Coachworks have earned an excellent reputation for employing only the best materials and talent in their 1961 C5 conversions. The computer-designed CRC body is made from SPRINT CBS, a unique composite material used by Aston Martin, Mercedes-McLaren SLR and other high-end manufacturers.
The material is a balance of carbon fiber and e-glass layers placed on either side of a pre-cast, pre-catalyzed resin film. After a high temperature cure, the parts are treated with a special Spies-Hecker paint system which has been specially developed for use on this material. The surfacing material and paint system virtually eliminate any pattern bleed-through on the outer surface.
The CRC conversion is more than replacing and bolting on a few panels on a stock C5. Every panel on the C5 is replaced with a computer engineered, vacuum formed Carbon Balance part. Each individual part is made without seams to prevent printing on the outer surface. The rear section of the car is permanently attached to the C5 frame and all other parts are attached using removable fasteners. The car was designed to use factory stock parts (hinges, wiring, interior appointments). The bumpers and most of the chrome trim are manufactured specifically for Classic Reflection Coachworks.
