2001 CRC Corvette Convertible – The CRC Conversion is a result of many years of digital computer scanning and modeling with leaders in the Sprint CBS carbon fiber industry. Our initial molds were developed with the assistance of Boeing Phantom Works. Our current molds are now designed and developed in house in one of our Seattle area facilities. Although fiberglass was the state of the art body material during the past 60 plus years, it is prone to cracking and messy body repairs. Today most high end sports and performance cars use parts and components made of carbon fiber which is, under stress, stronger than both metal and fiberglass. Our CRC Conversions use a type of carbon fiber called CBS. The material is supplied to us by Gurit and we have adapted our shops to use the newest process in laying up parts. With CBS we actually use a surfacer in the molds before laying the carbon fiber material. This prevents pattern bleed through which is a fairly well known issue when using carbon fiber. The complete CRC body is manufactured using this state of the art carbon fiber whereas other manufacturers will use carbon for accent pieces or just a few parts on the car. Some of our chrome trim is chromed carbon fiber as well, such as the headlight rings and trunk spears on the ‘58 model and the bumpers. This is truly “state of the art manufacturing”.
If you are looking for something truly unique and priced right, this immaculate ’62 Retro-Vette is worth some serious review. Why is this CRC Corvette unique? Per the manufacturer, they almost exclusively build their carbon fiber conversions on convertible Corvette chassis. The Mystic Teal Metallic over Tan leather color combo just can’t be beat! There are over 850 hours in this build and it shows! It was completed in June of 2005 and has just under 55k miles. That mileage reflects miles on the 2001 donor vehicle. There are less than 2k miles since the CRC build was completed. The previous owner always keeps this beauty garaged and covered. A full maintenance update was completed in Sept of 2020 and the transmission received a rebuild in Dec of 2020. It also features as new set of Hankook ZR-Rated tires that were recently installed. A complete set of features and options includes; LS1 5.7L V8 (350hp), 962 Carbon Fiber Body, Ceramic Coated, Auto, A/C, Front Airbags, Factory Alarm, ABS Brakes, Center Console Storage, Chrome Bumpers, Cruise Control, Dual Climate Control, Corsa Exhaust, Rubber Floormats, Fog Lights, Heads-Up Display (HUD), Keyless Entry, LCD Headlights, Power Windows/Locks/Mirrors, Power/Memory Seats, Rear Window Defrost, Pioneer Touchscreen A,M/FM/CD/Rear Camera, Kenwood Amp, Bazooka Bass Tube, Bose Speakers, Tilt Steering, Tinted Glass, Traction Control, 18″ Chrome Wheels (17″ front), and New Hankook Ventus V12 Tires! CRC is no longer producing these vehicles so if you are looking for one of the best ’62 Retro-Vettes on the market, your options are few. This excellent example is one you shouldn’t let slip away!
