1963 Chevrolet CorvetteHere's a nice 1963 Corvette Roadster. It's been tastefully updated with a 430 horspeower LS3 and T56 6 speed transmission. The entire car was gone through to build a very nice driver quality pro touring style C2 Corvette. We built most of the car here at Schraders Speed & Style and the customer has been enjoying it for a little over one year. It's time to move on to a new project so this one must go. Here is a rare opportunity to buy a pro built, ell sorted early Corvette without waiting a year for a build to be completed. Just write the check and enjoy it now!
This car was brought to us as a roller with some disassembly work started. We fitted the LS3/T56 driveline, he motor was a low mileage take out and the transmission is a new T56 Magnum. We used a new GM Performance install kit which included the accessory drive, CM, arness, as pedal and MAF sensor. The entire car was rewired front to back as well. The front and rear suspension was totally redone including all wear items in the front and rear while the rear trailing arms were swapped for later 1966 arms to allow a disc brake conversion. This is a power steering car and we replaced the ram and control valve, e also made custom lines to adapt the original power steering setup to the LS3 pump.
The brakes were updated to Wilwood all around, here's 13" rotors with six piston calipers up front and 12" rotors with four piston calipers out back. The differential was also gone through. Wheels are from Coys.
The interior was updated with new seat covers, arpets and door panels. Both coves were repaired, added and wrapped. Overall the interior presents very well. There is a soft top only, he canvas needs a cleaning but otherwise in great shape. The rear window will need to be replaced.
The body is overall in good shape. Someone added very subtle rear flares a long time ago and the stock hood has been replaced with a big block stinger hood. The paint was in decent shape when we got the car, ll we did was some spot repairs and shot a lot of new clear. It is a very nice driver quality paint job.
The car has a few minor issues, he clock does not work, he temp gauge quit working (it's the gauge) and the horn does not work.
It is very fun to drive, he car is loud and fast. It's very easy to drive around town but the motor comes alive at about 4,000 rpm. It is totally sorted and everything works as it should, esides the minor items noted above. It does not overheat in traffic and gets surprisingly good gas mileage if you can keep your foot out of it.
