The fiberglass body is finished in Frost Blue and features a replacement white convertible top and matching coves. Additional exterior equipment includes quad headlights, chrome bumpers and trim, and dual exhaust tips exiting through the rear bumper. The hood, left rear quarter panel, and front fenders were repainted in August 2015.
Body-color 15″ wheels feature polished Corvette covers and wear 205/75 Coker Classic whitewall tires. EPAS Performance power steering and power front disc brakes were installed in 2017. The suspension and steering gear were rebuilt in 2019 by Snell Automotive in Memphis, Tennessee.The cockpit features low-back bucket seats re-trimmed in blue vinyl along with a matching dash pad, door panels, and carpets.

A fire extinguisher is located in the trunk, and the carpets were replaced in August 2015.
The 350ci V8 was installed during prior ownership and reportedly sourced from a later-model Corvette. It is equipped with an Edelbrock intake manifold, finned valve covers, and a PowerGen alternator. Service during current ownership included repairing wiring, rebuilding the carburetor, and replacing the timing chain, oil pan, spark plugs, and valve covers.
