Retro 1967 Corvette Stingray Brought to Life

Remember the incredibly cool retro 1967 Corvette Stingray prototype made from Precision Board we wrote about previously?  The project has gone from concept to reality and the 1967 CRC model has been added to the Classic Reflections Coachworks already impressive retro-Corvette lineup, all of which is available to the public.

Hard to believe this was once a C-6 series Corvette!

In case you didn’t have a chance to see, Precision Board PBLT-4 was used to make a 1/2 scale Corvette Stingray prototype in our previous blog: Combining a Late Model Corvette With a 1967 Stingray: How it’s Done.

Or you can check out an additional blog showing the step-by-step process of the Corvette conversion at: Corvette Conversion: Bringing A Corvette Back To The Good Old Days!



Combining a Late Model Corvette with a 1967 Stingray: How It's Done

Classic Reflections Coachworks is proud to announce the newest addition to their lineup: the legendary 1967 Corvette Stingray. Redesigned to provide the comfort and technology of today’s Corvette while maintaining the classic look from 1967, CRC has succeeded in making an authentic-looking masterpiece.

The first step in combining a C6 Corvette and a 1967 Corvette Stingray is the concept rendering. The original Stingray Corvette and a new C6 chassis’ are individually scanned into a 3D CAD program and morphed together.

After the datasets are combined and morphed, a design is created. It’s then time to create a physical prototype to see the new “retro” Stingray in a physical 3-D form.

Starting with a 17″ x 4′ x 10′ block of Precision Board Plus PBLT-4, CRCoachworks machines the block with their 5-axis CNC router into a 1/2 scale prototype:


Precision Board Plus PBLT-4 is then coated with Duratec for a hard surface:


A coat of U-Pol Automotive Primer is sprayed over the Duratec:


Next comes a Spies Hecker Marina Blue base coat:


The finished prototype sports a Spies Hecker clearcoat. (It’s hard to believe this entire car, including the sidepipes and windshield, is made out of Precision Board Plus HDU!)


After completion, the final design is fine-tuned based on a visual inspection of the prototype.

According to Ron Marsden, General Manger at CRC, they chose Precision Board Plus HDU because our large block sizes and superior machining qualities offered a high-quality, cost-effective tooling solution.

Trinity Animation of Lee’s Summit, MO put together this C-6 to Corvette Stingray animation using and V-Ray software.

The first full-size CRC Corvette Stingray is currently 90% finished. Once complete, we will be posting pictures of what we are sure will turn out to be a beautiful car!

For the complete turnkey package, a 2013 CRC Corvette Stingray can be your very own for the grand price of $205,000. Have questions? Visit

Previously, CRC specialized in turning late-model Corvettes into primarily 1958-1962 new “retro” Corvettes. Be sure to take a look at our previous blog if you would like to see the step-by-step transformation.

CRC currently produces 2 CRC Corvettes a month and is in process of moving to a larger location to increase production capability.

Coastal Enterprises would like to thank Ron Marsden for providing information, photos and insight into this innovative process.
