The car’s originality and condition were recognized and appreciated by the NCRS judges who in October 2009 awarded the car a Top Flight Certificate and Blue Ribbon, with a score of 96.3, which is an excellent score for a 46 year old original / unrestored Survivor Corvette.

The car has not been restored; but, instead has been properly maintained to preserve its originality. In 2008 a Master Corvette Restorer / Mechanic rebuilt the chassis to enhance the drivability of the car, without compromising the car’s factory originality. The original gage cluster and radio have been refurbished professionally. The car has a new correct Dewitt’s radiator, a NOS left muffler, new plugs and wires, tires and a replacement soft top, which is in excellent condition. This 1963 Corvette is absolutely “turn key”, needing nothing other then a new home, with a automobile enthusiast, who desires an original unrestored Corvette and welcomes the opportunity to take over stewardship of this amazing Survivor.
