1963 Chevrolet Corvette
Corvette Grand Sport Replica Vintage Road Race Car
This is a replica Corvette Grand Sport Vintage road racecar that was raced from 1963-67.
This car is street legal and is licensed and registered. It has the following safety items; headlights, parking light, taillights, directional light front and rear, horn, license light in the rear and windshield wipers.
Construction started with a 4" tube frame,like the original Grand Sports from D and D Corvette. It was first zinc primed and then painted in semi-gloss black Dupont Imron. Corvette C-4 suspension was added to the front and rear.
Front: Used Corvette polished aluminum upper and lower A-Arms, spindles, new rotors, calipers and pads. Non- corvette parts: Sweet steering rack, Alden Eagle adjustable coil over shocks, custom made tie rods and sway bar, links, brackets and bushings.
Rear: rebuilt used Corvette rear end (3:07 gears), Â½ shafts (cut) 1 Â½": new u-joints, rebuilt wheel spindles housings, 2 upper and lower T-Arms rods with poly bushings, 2 new rotors, calipers an pads.
Non-Corvette parts are the 2 rear Alden Eagle adjustable coil over shocks, custom strut and toe rods.
Transmission: Corvette 700-R4 Professionally rebuilt with 2000 RPM converter, with a manual overdrive switch, and custom trans. cooler. Also new u-joints.
Non-Corvette: B&M Mega shifter, custom transmission mounts.
I have the standard transmission clutch mounts on the frame as well as the standard clutch and brake pedals for conversion to a standard transmission.
Tires and Wheels: Wheels are American Torque Thrust 7" front 8 Â½" rear with
B.F. Goodrich tires.
Body: The body was a one-piece kit car fiberglass body from D and D Corvette that was professionally modified. The first modification was to reinforce the door areas and the dash to accommodate original 67 Corvette coupe doors with 63-67 Corvette hinges and latches. The second was to modify the windshield and rear window areas to accommodate new reproduction glass windshield and rear window. The third was to move the gas filler area from the side to the rear and relocate the racing fuel cell to the rear, rather than behind the seats. The fourth modification was to fill in the rear opening for the transmission cooler and put an opening for the Corvette gas lid and gas tank filler area. The fifth was the grill vents in the front and side of the hood, which were custom made of fiberglass, (instead of metal) and bonded to the openings in the hood. The entire body was reworked before being primed with epoxy primer then painted in base coat Le Mans metallic blue. A custom white racing stripe was then applied before the entire car was clear coated.
The front and side fender grill are custom made except for the following which are all GM Corvette parts; front emblem, door handles and locks, side view mirror, rear emblem, gas door lid, parking and taillight lenses, license plate bezel and light, and Grand Sport emblems.The entire vehicle weight 2540lbs.
The headlight system and clear plastic covers are custom made.
Interior: The instrument cluster is 1965-67 Corvette that was restored and the gauges were re-screened. The tach red line at 6000 RPM and the oil pressure gauge is 80 lbs.
The steering column is from a 1965-66 Corvette, with a new horn button and a custom steering wheel.The door panels are new 67 Al Knock deluxe door panels and custom Al Knock carpet with new 63-67 Corvette carpet pads and center cushion. The door vent window crank, locks, and open knobs are Corvette. All three wiring harnesses (motor, dash, and rear) are 66-67 Corvette wiring harnesses. All gauges and instruments (wiper, headlight, lighter, ignition) work. The door weather-strip is new and so are the coupe window felts. The door and vent window are Corvette. The seat belts are racing harnesses and a two-piece roll bar is mounted to the frame. The seats are adjustable cloth/vinyl.
Motor: 350 Chevy 4-bolt main with new Corvette aluminum head with roller rockers. The intake is aluminum with a 600 CMF Holley and open element air cleaner. The distributor is a mechanical tach drive with 2 Â½" exhaust manifold and a custom stainless side exhaust under the body so they will not burn the legs of the passenger or driver upon exit or entry.
The radiator has a Plainless electric cooling fan with a thermostat relay. The valve covers are 84 Corvette.
The power brake booster is a reproduction for 63-67 Corvette with a dual master cylinder and custom brake and fuel lines.
I have numerous photos and a notebook ofreciepts at all stages of the construction of the vehicle from the bare frame to completion.
