Corvette guru Zora Arkus-Duntov reportedly hated designer Larry Shinoda’s split rear window on the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe, which undeniably obstructed the driver’s view. For 1964, the split window was gone and replaced by a single piece of glass. The Corvette’s stylists also removed the faux air intakes from the hood, though the indentations remained, making the 1964 hood unique. The roof vents in the coupe were also redesigned, though only the driver’s side vents were functional, with a three-speed fan to exhaust hot air.
Collectors prefer Shinoda’s original design split window today, which is reflected in prices, but 1964 Corvette buyers still turned out in droves. Sales rose to 22,229 overall, although coupe sales fell 20 percent to 8,304 while convertibles increased to 13,925 from 10,919. Knock-off alloy wheels were actually produced this year – all with three-pointed ears – since the problems with alloy porosity had been solved. A total of 806 buyers ordered them.
The Chevy 327 cubic-inch OHV V-8 remained the only engine, available in stock 250 bhp tune or with 300 bhp, 360 bhp and 375 bhp options available. The highest horsepower L84 engine featured fuel-injection and cost $538 extra. A total of 1,325 buyers opted for fuel-injection which meant 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds and top speed of 138 mph. Convertible buyers could add a factory hardtop for $422, and 7,023 did, with 1,220 of them deleting the soft top. Air conditioning was fitted to only 1,988 cars.
The base transmission was a 3-speed manual gearbox, but only 711 buyers opted for that. The majority (19,050) ordered the $188 4-speed manual, which was available in with wide-ratio and close ratio configurations. A total of 10,538 buyers ordered the wide-ratio 4-speed with the 250 and 300 bhp engines, while 8,496 combined the close-ratio box with the 365 and 375 bhp motors. A further 2,480 buyers paid $199 for a two-speed Powerglide automatic.
When we talk about America, we instinctively talk about cars. Well… at least I do. Maybe it has something to do with me being a huge car enthusiast? I definitely think so. In this article I will dig into the American car culture and find my all-time American dream car. No! It will not be […]
Hennessey Performance Engineering wasted no time getting to work on the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The Texas tuner added a nitrous oxide system to the recently released sports car, then took it out for a top-speed run and achieved a claimed 205.1 mph. That speed was reached at the Continental Tire Proving Ground in […]
The 2020 Corvette, the first mid-engine model in the marque’s 67-year history, has had a difficult start. First, its release was pushed back due to reported development delays regarding its aluminum spaceframe and electrical architecture. Then, production was delayed at least two months due to a strike by the United Auto Workers. Now, the coronavirus has […]
With the Indianapolis 500 postponed until August because of COVID-19, instead of happening later this month, the Pick of the Day celebrates one of the 15 times that Corvette has served as the official pace car. The 1998 Chevrolet Corvette Indianapolis Pace Car convertible is one of the limited-edition factory replicas of the Indy 500 […]
The 2014 C7 Chevrolet Corvette won the Fiberglass Follies by a front clip over pre-race favorite, the 1990 ZR1. The 1978 Indianapolis 500 pace car, the first Corvette to pace at the famed race, finished third. The race was a figment of the imagination designed to fill a void in the real horse racing scheduled […]

Chevrolet produced only 300 examples of its Corvette sports car for the 1953 model year, and according to the dealer in Phoenix advertising the Pick of the Day on ClassicCars.com, this one, the 87th produced, “is one of the most important extant.” And thus the $249,800 asking price for this 1953 Chevrolet Corvette. According to […]
As if a 1967 Chevrolet Corvette isn’t racy enough, the Pick of the Day boosts it up a notch with a “Grand Sport” replica body kit that emulates the race cars that GM sponsored briefly in the 1960s, as originally envisioned by the legendary Corvette guru Zora Arkus Duntov. This wild-looking roadster is a “street […]
The much-anticipated and now rolling-off-the-assembly-line mid-engine C8 edition of the Chevrolet Corvette is one of those cars considered to be an instant classic. But with the engine now located behind rather than in front of the driver, it should be a good time for even long-time Corvette owners to go back to school. Driving school, […]

But he also grew up with a love of Detroit muscle cars and especially Chevrolet Corvettes. His passion for such muscular machines led to the founding 25 years ago of the Vicari Auction Company, […]
