The word "Survivor" is a car that is loosely used a lot in the
collector car world to describe cars that remain highly original.
It is in fact a trademark of Bloomington Gold founder David
Burroughs. For years, Burroughs encouraged the owners of excellent
original Corvettes to forego their restoration and carefully
preserve the original integrity of the vehicle. Cars that are
awarded the Bloomington Gold Survivor Award are only the extreme
originals that serve as educational benchmarks for Corvette
restorers. A very small percentage of Corvettes ave been preserved
for that very purpose and have received Survivor status. The 1964
Corvette offered here is one of those cars, receiving the
Bloomington Gold Survivor certification in 2007.
Gr Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this certified Survivor, 1964 Corvette Roadster. Built in June of 1964, the car is one of 3454 finished in popular Daytona Blue matched with a black interior. At just over 58000 miles, the car retains its factory original paint and original interior both with wonderful patina. The 327 / 250 hp engine and engine by remain remarkably complete and original retaining all its original ignition shielding, original air cleaner, carb, alternator....the water pump was replaced out of necessity, however the original part is still with the car. Other highlights include simulated Walnut steering wheel, Am / FM radio, spinner wheel covers on Firestone bias-ply tires. Mechanically, the car is wonderful to drive as it has never been taken apart and re-assembled.
When it comes to investing in cars, things matter. Original cars are highly sought after around the globe for the obvious reason, they're only original once. The Corvette offered here is exactly what Mr. Burroughs conceived when creating the Bloomington Gold Survivor Award and will remain a template for years to come.
