Chev 789 a classic composite for us older guys


The New/Old 7~8~9  Chevy
A 1957, 1958 and 1959 Chevy all rolled into one! 
What a beautiful rear end
This car was built by N2A motors  (N2 A like)
Sexy interior 

Unbelievable!   The company is planning a production run of about 100 vehicles.
It sits on a Corvette C6 chassis, front styled like a 57 Chevy, Side like a 58, rear like a 59. 

With the appearance of the 789 nailed down, N2A needed to find the perfect platform to attach it to. Since the goal was to have a car that performed as nicely as it looked, the choice was obvious: the C6 Corvette. Fred Kanter, chairman of Kanter Concepts, tells PHR, "We have taken the world's best value in a performance chassis-the Le Mans-winning Corvette C6-and wrapped it in an iconic selection of American designs." This means that under all those gorgeous body lines lies a 400hp LS2 V-8 and a cutting-edge sports car suspension. It also means that the 789 is not much more difficult to maintain than a typical new Corvette.

When dealing with a classic car, even a modernized one, an owner has to work with a host of issues like rarity of parts and the upkeep of custom, one-off systems like the suspension. According to Kanter, the 789 offers the best of both worlds: retro looks with classic styling-and it'll fire up every time you push the start button.

Hence the designation "789."
