The 789 Chevy

Imagine a car that has all of the most attractive features from three different classic Chevy models such as the 1957 Bel Air, 1958 Impala, and the 1959 Chevrolet. Then wrap this contemporary body around a 2005-2007 Corvette C6 chassis. This is precisely what was done with a concept car called the 789!

This is a concept car built by n2a motors in limited edition—only approximately 100 vehicles will be available. The chassis is a Corvette C6 and the front of the vehicle is styled similar to the classic 57 Chevy BelAir, the side designed after the 58 Chevy, and the rear resembles the 59 Chevy, hence the name “789.”

The nose of the 789 is represented by the familiar hood rockets, chrome hood V, grille bar, parking lights, rubber bumper tips, and headlight bezel of a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air. Rear treatment is a very close match to the spread wings and cat-eye taillights of the 1959 Chevrolet's slim line design styling, including the placement of the license plate. All along the side, stainless trim resembles a 1958 Chevrolet Impala, right down to the placement of the Corvette crossed flags emblems.

The $80,000 conversion base cost includes choice of color scheme, specific 789 exhaust, and PST high-performance sway bars. Upgrades include up to 800 hp powertrains, custom suspension, audio/video/navigation systems, interior customization, and more. Although the 789 will be custom made according to the buyers selection, no two vehicles will be designed with the same paint and interior color scheme so that every single model will be unique.

The 789 interior is similar to the tri-colored ribbed vinyl found in the 1958 Chevy Impala. The 789 is well equipped with all of the standard equipment of the 2005-2007 Corvettes including 6.0L LS2 400 plus horsepower V8 engine and automatic or 6-speed manual transmission and custom exhaust system along with a $2,000 custom wheel upgrade.

Creating a brand new automobile with a 1950s design was, no doubt, not an easy task; however, this 789 has just the right mix of styling from a Chevy era when some of the most popular cars in history existed. Among the millions of cars Chevrolet has manufactured over its 100 year history this 789 concept car built by n2a motors is sure to be a classic car hit, on the top of every classic car enthusiasts’ must have list.
