Description for Chevrolet Corvette 1964

Custom 1964 Corvette

In 1964 I purchased from an insurance company, a 1964 Chevrolet Corvette convertible that had been stolen and had its engine and transmission removed. (Vin# 40867S103144) There was also considerable body damage. My father owned a very prestigious auto body repair shop where I worked. Over the next five years I installed the following:

Chevrolet 409 engine

High performance cam with solid lifters

High performance intake manifold

Twin carburetors

Custom exhaust system with cutouts

Aluminum four speed transmission

Custom dashboard

Custom upholstery

Custom seats

Custom steering wheel

Custom body

I converted the body from a convertible to a hardtop with a removable roof. The roof when not installed fits behind the seats. The body was completely custom built and not a kit body. There are no other vehicles like this one. I retained all of the Corvette inner panels and door mechanisms. The steering, suspension, windshield, drivetrain are all standard Corvette and parts are readily available.

I built the automobile to be driven on the street and not a show car. I did however enter it in several shows where I took first place. Because of work related issues I drove the vehicle less than 300 miles when I parked it in a barn and it has not been driven for the last 50 years.

The car will require work to be driven. The body is in excellent condition but has some paint chips. The tires are dry rotted and several have blown out. The aluminum wheels are pitted. There is some upholstery mouse damage. The rubber items like radiator and break hoses will have to be replaced. Battery is missing. The driver door glass is cracked. I have no idea of what the engine will require.

The vehicle is located on a farm 40 miles North of Pittsburgh Pa. Moving it will require a flatbed tow truck. Contact me if you have any questions.
