1964 Chevrolet Corvette
In 1963 following the popularity of the C1 corvette the C2 series was introduced and it was time for a total redesign. Inspiration was drawn from the 1957 Q Corvette and Bill Mitchell's racing Sting Ray. These cars had thin long wedge like noses and rear with peaked fenders. It was quite a unique look and they used the name as well with this generation being the first to wear the "Sting Ray" name. This was when we also saw the first introduction of the Corvette Coupe with its long fastback body. This very nice 1964 Corvette is a roadster with both a removable hard top and White cloth top. It has had a repainted in the past in a Silver Blue metallic with a single, pinstripe flanked, White center stripe. It really looks good and the stripe runs across the roofline and on the body underneath so that with the top not in place it still looks right. The car wears all of its original style trim, emblems, and bumpers which all have a very nice shine. The glass is all good throughout with no issues. The original hubcaps with knock off style center caps are nicely mounted in place and it has Hankook thin white wall tires.
Mechanical the car just received a complete overhaul where everything was gone through. Around $10K was invested to have everything refreshed and/or rebuilt. It has a 350 V8 motor that runs great and sounds just as good through its dual side pipes. It has been dressed up with chrome Chevrolet valve covers and a Chevrolet Racing air cleaner. The carburetor was rebuilt, cooling system flushed, has a new water pump, new gas tank, etc. The motor is paired with a 4 speed transmission that shifts smoothly and makes the car a real blast to cruise around in. All of the electrical is working throughout with no issues. It has both power steering and power brakes which all work great. It is also a factory AC car which is a nice option but that system is the only thing not working correctly on the car.
The interior is done in Blue and is a unique original order feature. It is in good shape throughout. The dash has an all stock appearance and all the gauges, including the clock, work. In front of the driver sits its original woodgrain 3 spoke steering wheel which is in good condition.
If you are in the market for a cool Corvette that you can enjoy and drive without worries, look no further.
Make it yours for the very reasonable price of $59,500.00!
