PhotoShop '60/'63 Corvette Coupe????

Since my PhotoShop skills are non-existant, I wonder if I could talk someone in to doing one for me?

I would like to put the roof (including the split rear window), rear fenders, rear hatch area, and rear end of a '63 Corvette on a '60 Corvette.

Desired colors would be dark body with light side coves>??

ANY help appreciated.

Thanx,

Tom

Color choices are perfect!!!

I REALLY appreciate you doing these!!! I always thought that this combo would look good, but NEVER envisioned that it would look as good as you've achieved!!

I'm impressed. It sounded like an odd idea, but the forms flow together nicely

Thanks.

Quite frankly, I was a bit surprised at how it looked also. An actual design would need to "adjust" the later model. I think (without researching) the 63 would need to in fact be slightly reduced in the fenders to fit. Not sure, just eyeballin'.

Why not use a 62 and modify the roofline? It is the transitional year and has the revised rear fascia that led to the 63. Paint it 2 tone, revise the top for the split and go. I think you would be farther ahead to make a 62 into what you want. The 63 rear wheel opening looks funky when you look down the side of the car and run into the 62 front wheel opening. I also think the 63 is wider, again the 62 solves this.

I found this one online a while back, not quite what you are looking for but it doesn't look shopped either

Sounds like some Great ideas!

The "rear half" of the '63 Split-Window Coupe is my favorite design feature of any Corvette. I have just never liked the "front half" of that era.

Would REALLY like to see the front end of some of the other years merged with that split-window rear end.

Just imagine how a late '70's / '63 combo would look!!!

Thanx,

Tom

I've been playing around with a similar, if somewhat more radical idea:
I once read that the '71 Buick Riviera was originally supposed to be a smaller sporty car based on an A-body chassis until corporate politics turned the speed boat into a barge.
I got to playing around with the idea of what this would look like, then got to thinking about the similar lines of an early-70's Camaro ....
Plans to add 8" to the wheelbase got lost in the shuffle somewhere, but it turned out not to be needed: It looks much longer, but other than the shortened doors and the re-worked roof, it's all standard-issue Camaro under that swoopy sheetmetal
