1963 CHEVROLET CORVETTE GRAND SPORT RE-CREATION
This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette coupe is a professionally built re-creation of the Zora Arkus-Duntov Grand Sport. Power is provided by a GM Lingenfelter LS6 5.7-liter engine with polished aluminum dress mated to a GM 6-speed manual transmission. It was built on a dimensionally correct 4-inch tube chassis finished to the original Grand Sport engineering specifications and modified to adapt the lightweight alloy late-model Corvette drivetrain, front and rear suspension. It is equipped with power disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors, coilover front independent mono-leaf rear suspension, power windows, power rack & pinion steering, alloy wheels, Ididit steering column, Vintage Air and a stainless-steel fuel tank. This re-creation features a Grand Sport Daytona hood and body flairs with rear quarter air-exit slots, multiple holes in the rear fascia to facilitate air exit, brake fluid door on the driver's side front fender, relocation of the fuel filler situated behind the seats, redesign of the door handles, and large rear functional brake cooling air intakes located on each side of the rear deck. In addition, there is a small trunk and a Plexiglas rear window with no split, which increases rear visibility for the driver.
