This 1963 Corvette Convertible has had a recent total body off restoration. It was refinished in the correct trim tag color (936) Ermine White with a (490M) Red interior.Read this description carefully if you intend to purchase this car. I am including everything I know about the car including any flaws. I realize it is difficult to buy a car from photos and description. Please contact me through the ebay system with any questions. If you can see it personally, I will be pleased to show it to you. Body: Excellent quality BC/CC PPG Ermine White paint. Body lines are as good or better than factory, except rears of doors are a little low where they line up with the quarter panels (see photos). Also, there is a small stress crack at the corner of the left headlight door. (photo)All the plating is new, stainless is polished. Gas cap is incorrect , from a 1965 or 1966 model. Most 1963 type reproductions have tool marks: I was waiting to get a good one. Glass is all the factory installed LOF, most likely all original glass in very good condition. Some very small chips in windshield - no wiper marks. Windows, vent windows open and close smoothly. Wheel covers are polished with new reproduction spinners. The 6 bars on each hubcap have light pitting on some of them. Tires are American Classic radials 1" WW - with very low miles on them. Spare tire is used but very good WW. I do not have the jack, but that is an easy item to locate because it was also used on the Corvair. All lights, headlight doors, wiper, washers, etc. operate as normal. Hardtop & Soft Top: Hardtop has been restored with new headliner, fasteners, and weatherstripping. (See photo) Soft top vinyl is new. Soft top frame is clean, painted and like new. Interior: All soft trim, weatherstripping, everything is fresh and new. Gas gauge is not working correctly - may need recalibrated. Moving float in tank moves the gauge but not full range. This isn' t a big problem because it' s easy to look down into the tank to see the amount of fuel in it. Everything else in the dash works correctly. Speedometer was recalibrated, but odometer miles were left alone at about 48, 000. There is no way of knowing what the true miles are. Radio is a new reproduction Wonderbar AM/FM still under warranty. Engine: The 327 motor is correct for the car, but is not the original motor. The motor in the car is a rare 1968 Nova L79 Hi-po motor- one of only 1274 made that year. Casting #3914678- Stamped V0523EP. Engine was built before I purchased the car. It is cammed with roller rockers, Edelbrook Torker II, etc. I changed the valve covers and the heads, rockers, etc. were very clean - fresh build. Runs strong, more power than I need at 70 years of age. It sounds great running through factory type mufflers and pipes. Original Delco tach distributor. Chromed water pump and alternator are shiny but not show chrome. Correctly dated reproduction coolant tank, battery cables, hoses, ignition shielding, etc.. Chassis: Everything under the car is repainted, new or refurbished. New trailing arms, shocks, coils, brakes, exhaust system, etc. (see photos) There is a dent in the lower frame rail down low on the frame near the rear wheel. (see photo) This car once had side pipes on it. It appears the side pipe was hit near the rear wheel and the pipe pushed into the frame rail, which put a dent in the frame rail. The damage was below the body, so there was no body damage. The frame was not damaged and never needed straightened. It is just a superficial dent that I want the buyer to know about. Transmission: The 4 speed transmission shifts as designed and has the factory Corvette shifter in place. On 2 occasions in the past, when going down a hill in a lower gear (2nd or 3rd, I don' t remember) it came out of gear. I have since adjusted the linkage and it hasn' t happened since. Not sure what' s going on there. At the worst it may need a synchro at some time in the future.Shipping: Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. I will help where I can to coordinate pick up by your transportation company.
