Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1963

Corvette Grand Sport Replica Vintage Road Race Car


This is a replica kit car of the Corvette Grand Sport vintage racecar that was raced from 1963-67.

This car is street legal and is licensed and registered as a 1963 Chevy Replica,2door, color blue. It was inspected by the New York DMV and assigned a VIN number. The VIN# is on the registration. No state title is given for vehicles over ten years old. 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 from D and D Corvette. The frame 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 Suspension: C4 Corvette aluminum upper and lower A-Arms, spindles with 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 Suspension: C-4 Corvette rear end (3:07 gears), polished ½ shafts (cut) 1 ½”: new u-joints, rebuilt wheel spindles housings, 2 upper and lower trailing arms rods with poly bushings, 2 new rotors, calipers and pads.

Non-Corvette parts are the 2 rear Alden Eagle adjustable coil over shocks, custom strut and toe rods.


Transmission: A Corvette 700-R4 was Professionally rebuilt with 2000 RPM stall speed converter, with a manual overdrive switch and a custom transmission cooler. A C-4 driveshaft with new u-joints.

Non-Corvette: B&M Mega shifter and custom transmission mounts.

The standard transmission clutch cross shaft mount is on the frame to convert to a standard transmission. I have the standard clutch and brake pedals for a conversion.


Tires and Wheels: Wheels are American Torque Thrust, 7” in the front and 8 ½”in the rear withB.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 a new reproduction glass windshield and rear window. The third was to move the gas filler area from behind the seats and relocate the racing fuel cell to the rear. 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 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. The following 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 headlight system and clear plastic covers are custom made. The entire weight of the vehicle is 2,540 pounds.


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. 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 window and vent window cranks, locks, and open knobs are Corvette and work. All three wiring harnesses (motor, dash, and rear) are new 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 original 67 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 added roller rockers. The aluminum intake has a 600 CMF Holley and open element air cleaner. The distributor is mechanical tach drive.The valve covers are 84 Corvette. The exhaust manifolds are 2 1/2" and have a custom stainless side exhaust mounted under the body so they will not burn the legs of the passenger or driver upon exit or entry.

A Plainless electric cooling fan with a thermostat relay was installed.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.
