Yes it is possible..
You can create a new custom Theme, and then you have to copy and paste the 4 folders(css,images,js & templates) of the classic theme into the _diffs folder of newly created custom theme, now you can override any of the property you want to achieve and deploy it. The look and feel of classic theme will be maintained as it is, except the overridden property.

Kind Regards

You do not copy the stuff from classic...

You edit build.xml in the theme and make classic the parent theme. Then you do a build to get the standard theme files copied in. Then in the _diffs folder, you only create those directories/files that you need changes in.
