Flat 12 Gallery Debuts Mean Green Machine, the #VO6, in Vegas
Morphing a 1963 Volvo with a 2013 Corvette, the ‘beast’ was born. Now, it’s headed to auction to support the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Dallas’ Flat 12 Gallery debuted its newest one-of-a-kind vehicle at SEMA, morphing a 1963 Volvo 122S Amazon with a 2013 Grand Sport Corvette from Copart to create the ”#VO6.”
“The #V06 isn’t the normal classic car build,” said Flat 12 Gallery owner Jeff Allen, who also hosts the Skidmarks Show podcast. “I wanted to do something special [that’s] never been done before… This is a car that makes you look twice but can also perform like a beast. Our test drives have been phenomenal.”
Over the last few months, Allen’s Flat 12 Gallery team transformed the Volvo 122’s 85 horsepower performance level into a 600 hp beast that makes full use of the Pennzoil Synthetics under the hood, a Lingenfelter-built LS7, Forgeline Wheels, and Baer Brakes.
After a cross-country tour, the “#V06” will be auctioned by Barrett-Jackson with all proceeds benefiting the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, which offers financial assistance to students pursuing an automotive career.
