Too much leg room? John Wayne would have loved it!Chevy Corvette 1953 Chevy Corvette
My 1962 Corvette is looking more and more like a 1953 Vette, the first one.
It has a single head light per side and rounded fenders.
This has caused me a few problems which I hope I can work my way around.
Everything is looking ok at this point till I started to make the seats and there's way to much space for your feet.
Using the 1962 pictures for the out side and kind a guessing on the inside I made the inside way to large.
I got back on the web and with some deep digging found some 1953 picture looking down on the inside so I can get the spacing right.
So I had to take out half my work today and start over but all should work out in the end.
The trunk and folding roof take up a lot more room than you would think.
I had the space between the wind shield and back of the roof right but needed to make more room for the folding roof.
So here's my ouch pictures, after I got everything back under control I HOPE!!!
Now to make a cover to hide the bugger,the cover is needed so not really a problem in the long run.
Now a bit of trivia for you, many years ago a friend had a straight 8 Buick, you could actually stand up and walk around in the back seat area!
