Pro-Spray Automotive Finishes to Showcase 1962 Chevy Corvette Roadster at SEMA

130502coppertop_00000078917Pro-Spray Automotive Finishes has partnered with The Custom Shop in Flanagan, Ill., to display a 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster known as the “Copper Topless” at its booth (11253).

The Custom Shop’s designer and builder, John Wargo, worked to restore the Corvette, which was discovered on the second story of a barn scattered in pieces. After three long years, the vehicle was finally completed with the following modifications:

  • Chevy Big Block 598 cubic inch motor with Vortech supercharger
  • Dual side scoops
  • Motorized hood and trunk lid
  • Two-tone custom interior
  • Cray wheels
  • Rear view cameras

From start to finish, the Copper Topless sports Pro-Spray primer, sealer, basecoat and clearcoat. It features a Mango Tango Copper with ice pearl finish that fades five colors from top to bottom. The detail continues with fire flames airbrushed on both sides of the vehicle.

“I’ve been custom painting for 26 years and have used almost every brand of paint available,” said Wargo. “Pro-Spray has helped take my projects above and beyond what I ever imagined. The colors are extremely vibrant, and the clearcoats make my custom paint jobs stand out at the highest levels.”
