1963 CHEVROLET CORVETTE ROADSTER! FULL RESTORATION STARTED IN 2011, FINISHED IN 2013! MIRROR FINISH PAINT, ALL NEW, FRONT TO BACK! BEAUTIFUL & FUN TO DRIVE! FRESHLY BUILT 327 & FOUR SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION!

This Corvette under went a very lengthy as well as costly restoration back in 2011 - 2013. The entire car was completely tore down and gone through. The drive train, the suspension, interior, body, paint, chrome, stainless, everything was gone through. The finishing work of the car was clearly done by someone who knows their way around around these C2's. The fit and finish work are absolutely superb. The one area of this Corvette, which I still have a hard time understanding, is the body and paint work. Every C1, C2, & C3 that GM ever produced, came from the factory practically waving at you. Whoever did the body and paint work on this car were beyond meticulous. It truly has a mirror finish to it (please refer to photos and video located below). I've never seen a C2 with as nice of a body and paint. I personally would have been devastated when they handed me the bill. The rear frame rails appear to be completely original and solid. I don't believe they have ever been through any kind of repair work. I believe this Vet has spent the bulk of its life, tucked away indoors.

The motor and transmission were completely gone through. I believe it is a factory 327 with a four speed Muncie. Both of which operate exceptionally well. The motor does not leak, smoke, or burn an excess amount of fluid. It is quite powerful but is not extreme. It still runs on regular premium pump gas. The four speed shifts smoothly through all of its gears with out any hesitation. The dual exhaust setup sound surreal. The video located below, truly does not do this Vet any kind of justice. The steering setup is exceptional. It does not have a lot of play and still feels like it did the day it came off of the factory. It is not a sloppy mess. The brake setup is all new on the Vet and it works very well. It does not squeal, shake, or shimmy when stopping.

The interior of the Corvette has been completely redone. The instrument panel appears to be all new as does the carpet and door panels. The seats I believe were redone in real leather. They also did an excellent job in this regard.

Hurst Edition Trans Am proves the Screaming Chicken will rise from the ashes

Wed, 31 Oct 2012 14:39:00 EST

It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.
It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.

Read This: Auto Extremist advocates for Corvette as brand with multiple models [w/poll]

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.
Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible headed for Geneva debut

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 17:29:00 EST

While most of the world is still coming down from all the hype surrounding the debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month, we're already looking to the future. And according to Autoweek, the next chapter in the C7 story will unfold at the Geneva Motor Show in March. That's right, General Motors is reportedly using the Swiss stage as its venue to debut the Corvette Stingray convertible.
If this strikes you as odd, you aren't alone. After all, with a car that's such an American icon, we'd fully expect Chevrolet to unveil it here on our shores in either Chicago or New York. But according to Autoweek, GM is looking to boost export sales of its halo car, and since the C7 was engineered to compete with the world's best and brightest, showing it off in Geneva is somewhat of a smart move. What's more, those with sharp memories will recall that GM used the Geneva expo to debut the sixth-generation C6 Corvette convertible back in March 2004, so there's also a precedent.
Details surrounding the Corvette Stingray convertible are still slim, though we fully expect the 6.2-liter V8 and choice of either six-speed automatic or seven-speed manual transmissions to carry over unchanged. Prototypes spotted on the road showed the car fitted with a cloth convertible roof, as well.
