1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport replica, This car is a finished and sorted example, Built by [email protected] Motor works in 1991, it ran the Pittsburg Grand Prix in 1993, later it was set up to drag race it had a smaller motor in it then but still ran a 11.4, featured in many magazines which I have the issues as well as a binder 7 inches thick of all the receipts and information as well as an appraisal.
In 2005 Hayden Auto rebuilt it, a 540 Merlin Big Block was built 750 HP 700 Lbs of torque, a custom built chassis and lightened body with the car only coming in at 2560 Lbs. The receipts add up too over 50k for the motor and some other upgrades:
Custom Grand sport headlight covers, (some cracks to them) Aluminum grill, be cool radiator and support, elect fans, braided lines, Edlebrock 24 degree heads, Holley 950, edlebrock intake, march pulley system, custom valve covers, Holley elec fuel pump, MSD ignition, jet hotted headers, Mildon low profile oil pan,, powder coated a arms, disc brakes, Hughes built turbo 400, rear mounted cooler, all new wiring, gauges, interior etc. I have the complete motor build if needed.
The car is titled as 1963 Corvette, it runs and drives very well, cooling is not an issue. I will try to answer any questions that pertain to the car, I did not build it but do have a stack of records, photographs etc
