This 1964 Corvette is a nice one. This description will be long and lengthy but needs to be told as this corvette
has had a lot of restoration work done. We have owned this corvette before back in 2000 when the restoration was
done. We sold this actual car in 2001 and have just purchased it back from that same owner for all of these past 15
years. That owner kept the car always inside and preserved well as you can see from the chassis in the photos. It
has been driven regularly (fair weather only) and serviced whether it needed it or not. Only approx. 2,000 miles
have been put on the car since sold back in 2001. The miles shows now 67,458 and although possibly could be actual,
we cannot guarantee them. The corvette is finished in correct riverside red with black interior. The trim tag shows
this as well unlike most cars were they were silver or blue and then changed into red. The car was repainted at the
time of the restoration and was done in base coat clear coat finish. The paint still shines well and is very
presentable. The bonding strips are intact on the car. The trim was all removed when painted. The doors open and
close with ease and shut nicely. The windshield was replaced and all of the stainless trim was polished out nicely.
The windshield rubber was replaced along with the wiper arms. The overall car was done right and still looks as
good as the day it was finished.
Many new correct parts were replaced on the car from Long Island Corvette. This includes new GM front and rear
bumpers, new tail lights, new license plate bezel, license plate light restored, new gas door lid, new rocker
moldings, new door handles, new outside mirror, new emblems, new deck lid latches, new wiper arms, grill was
removed and polished, all bumper brackets were refinished and new hardware installed, new correct Dewitt dated
coded radiator and overflow tank installed in the car, new hoses and correct clamps, heater box removed and
correctly refinished, new heater core, new heater hoses, engine totally stripped down to bare and refinished, new
correct ignition shielding, fan shroud refinished along with all of the pulleys and fan blade, new fan clutch,
radiator support removed and painted, valve covers refinished, all suspension removed and rebuilt on the car
including new tie rod ends, new shocks, a-arms completely removed refinished glossy as they should be and new
bushings installed, new half shafts, driveshaft and rear leaf spring all refinished, new correct gas tank from
Quanta with a new sending unit, rear trailing arms all removed and rebuilt, new brakes, lines, all drum brake
assemblies removed and not only rebuilt but restored nicely, drums blasted and painted, front sway bar refinished,
spare tire compartment restored, all new correct aluminized exhaust system from corvette central with all hangers,
clamps, and heat shields like the originals, new exhaust bezels and extensions, rear end assembly painted a cast
blast to prevent from rusting, new shifter and linkage, oil pan and entire block repainted, just about everything
was refinished on the car to make it look like it does in the photos. The frame was repainted in semi-gloss black
and inspection markings put back on it like from the factory. Underbody has never been undercoated and you can see
just how nice the bare fiberglass floors are in the photos. When the car was restored it was the goal to do it
right with markings and labels. The car does drive nice and tight and shifts smoothly. Plenty of power and the
engine runs out smoothly.
The interior on the car is very nice. The seat covers, carpet, and door panels are all new from Al Knock when
restored. The carpet is fitted like it should with little to no wrinkles, the dash pads are near perfect originals
only redyed to match the rest of the interior, also no evidence of cracks or repairs on them, the console was
restored along with the glovebox door, new glovebox liner and the light does still work, new ash tray and shifter
boot, clock restored with quartz movement, original am/fm radio still works, new rear jack board, new reproduction
style seat belts, instruments all work and are original, gauges are not perfectly fresh but are very presentable
and the odometer still does work, the steering wheel is extremely nice with no splits or cracks, new horn button,
and the list goes on. The convertible softop is white vinyl and does present itself well. The back window is no
discolored and the softop does fit good with the window glass up. The softop however is not perfect and has been on
the car for the past 15 plus years. I personally would not install a new top on the car because it is to good to
redo, however I do have a new softop from Al Knock still in the box that is included with the sale of the car.
There was about $16,000 spent on the car back then not counting the paint job or any labor on the car.
This corvette is restored nicely. No perfect but after looking at what is for sale out there I believe you could
not get one into this condition for what my reserve is. At todays cost and labor to restore a car like this could
easily cost you $50,000 plus the cost of the corvette. You are better off to buy one like this one than to buy a
project car and never see it finished and when you do you end up having $100,000 in it!

The corvette is a nice example of a 1964 model convertible. Very presentable not only on the top side but
underneath as well. Something that you can show and drive as well. We have driven it about 100 miles since we
purchased the car back. Included with the sale is a portfolio of the car with restoration photos and receipts
showing the chassis dismantled. There is also some title history dating back about 20 years where the car has been
in the southwest part of Missouri the entire time, assembly manual and shop manual, sales brochure, owners manual,
spare tire lock, jack and lead hammer for KO Wheels, new softop still in the box, nice indoor car cover, and some
other information pertaining to this corvette over the past 15+years.

If you're burnt out on musings about the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll want to go ahead and skip this post. Motor Trend reports General Motors is hard at work on a low-cost version of the seventh-generation sports car for 2015. Rumored to be called the Corvette Coupe, the car will forgo the Stingray and skip the 450-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine in favor of a 5.3-liter V8 with under 400 ponies. If you're keeping track, that's a shade of the same engine found behind the headlights of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The report also suggests the Coupe will receive a number of aesthetic tweaks to separate it from the Stingray, including different front and rear fascias as well as new front fenders and a rear diffuser. Motor Trend says the point of all this is to cut the car's price tag, which means we may see a Corvette on showroom floors for less than $50,000 if this car comes to fruition.
How would you react if someone just showed up at your place of work with a new, 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, complete with all the trimmings? While a lot of us would likely be flipping out over the still rare sports car, it's a fair bet many more of us would be responding like Pattie here, whose boyfriend stopped by her work to show her her new C7.
Speechless and shocked as she seems, she does end up taking it out for a drive, despite claiming she wasn't really outfitted to handle the car's seven-speed manual transmission at the time. From the sound of the video, we got the impression that she knew the car was coming, just not that it was anywhere near ready for delivery. It also, as Pattie says, seems like her boyfriend is more excited about the car than she (which, can we blame him?). Take a look down below for the full video of this C7 Stingray delivery.
Recently discovered General Motors trademark applications for LT4, LT5, LT88 and LTX have observers wondering what kind of high-performance offerings could be on their way. A new LT4 would mark a return of the engine designation first used on the Corvette Grand Sport, SLP Pontiac Firehawk and SLP Chevrolet Camaro SS from 1996 and 1997. Supposition at Corvette Forum - which provided advance intel on the C7 like these leaked images - believes a new LT4 could go into the high-performance trim of the next-gen, 2015 Camaro that would be more powerful than the 580-horsepower Camaro ZL1.
Seeing an LT5 again would also be déjà vu - in its former life it was a 5.7-liter V8 for the C4 Corvette ZR-1 from 1990-1994 designed by Lotus, producing from 370 hp to 405 hp. A mix of rumor and hope is that the new LT5 will be a supercharged evolution of the 6.2-liter LT1 (pictured) placed in the new C7 Corvette, and that it will go into the C7 version of the ZR1 pumping out something like 700 hp.
The LTX trademark is, as with that last letter, a complete mystery. If the "X" isn't a generic way to denote the whole LT family, it's wondered if it LTX could refer to a crate motor offering like the LSX.
