Vehicle Description

About the 1963 Grand Sport:The mid-year Corvettes are beloved vehicles for both their striking styling and thrilling V-8 engines. Making a lightweight sports car with a powerful engine that makes the right sounds is central to the Corvette mystique. The 1963 Corvette Grand Sport represents the pinnacle of this idea perhaps making it the ultimate Corvette. You often hear the term racer for the street but rarely is it true. The engine might make the requisite power but creature comforts usually dictate that any racer must be softened for the street. In the case of the Grand Sport no such concessions were made. The primary goal of this special model was all about weight savings to enhance speed. Steel was swapped for lightweight aluminum in the metal frame birdcage steering box and differential housing. Lightweight fiberglass body panels were used and magnesium wheels replaced the usual steel rollers. The result was startling. The Grand Sport weighed a mere 1900 pounds compared to the stock Corvette's 3250. With only five 1963 Grand Sports produced the values of these cars are now stratospheric.About our car:Absolutely Pristine 1963 Corvette Grand Sport Replica that is Simply Stunning inside and out!
