The entire engine assembly has been treated with a 2 stage epoxy process. It will not fade, chip or allow rust to form. The Chevy orange will appear as new for decades.
Gear shifting is accomplished with a rebuilt 1960's HURST Competition Plus shifter specific to the C2 Corvette w/Borg Warner. Extremely rare.
Ignition is handled by a computerized multiple spark discharge controller providing for instantaneous throttle response within the lower rpm range. Also, points have been replaced with a magnetic trigger. Not stock but a noticeable improvement in drivability and performance.
The chassis is original & specific to the 1963 build year with absolutely no rust, cuts or after factory welds. The birdcage frame is rust free with the factory zinc chromate finish intact.
Original body panels with all bonding strips in place.
The engine has been completely rebuilt, blueprinted and balanced utilizing professional machining and racing quality components. Cylinders are bored out .020 over the stock 4.0”. Cylinder heads have been ported & polished for maximum flow, stainless valves, double roller timing chain, roller tipped rocker arms and a modern solid lifter camshaft rated at .495 lift at 282 degrees duration, rpm range 2000-6000, w/matching valve springs & titanium retainers.
ARP bolts & nuts are used to secure the cylinder heads, connecting rods, main journal caps, intake & exhaust manifolds. A forged steel crankshaft rotates under a 11:1 compression ratio utilizing forged aluminum pistons. Engine output has been engineered to produce approx. 360 gross horsepower @ 6000 rpm.
The 2.5” aluminized exhaust system with low back flow aluminized mufflers provide for excellent exhaust scavenging. Stainless steel brake lines, Delco brake components, front & rear suspension, steering linkage, steering box have all been completely rebuilt/replaced with Made in USA Moog components.
TOP RATED UNIROYAL Tiger Paw 205/75R15 whitewall tires provide for excellent handling and the original look.
The clutch pedal is set for short throw and the steering is set for 3.8 turns lock to lock for responsive handling.
