Innovation is showcased in every detail of the restomod 1961 Pro Touring Corvette that will be on display at the E-Z UP booth during the SEMA Show, set for Oct. 31 – Nov. 3 in Las Vegas.

E-Z UP founder Mark Carter was involved in every detail of restomodding the Corvette, a four-year-long project. The E-Z UP Corvette features original designs and top-quality materials, just like the ingenuity Carter brings to his company every day.

Started in 1983, E-Z UP is the original and still No. 1 provider of Instant Shelter® products.

“The attention to detail and precision put into the Corvette reflects the E-Z UP brand,” Carter said. “We stand for quality and originality.”

  • Ceramic-coated Art Morrison headers incorporating a pair of polished stainless MagnaFlow mufflers
