According to the accompanying NCRS/GM Shipping Data Report, this 1963 Chevrolet
Corvette Z06 Tanker Split Window Coupe was produced on February 18th, 1963
and delivered new by Kardon Chevrolet of Mt. Holly, New Jersey, one of a mere
199 built before GM halted its production to comply with the industry-wide self-
imposed ban on racing activities. This Sebring Silver-on-Black Z06 was delivered
with the exceptionally rare N03 36 gallon fuel tank, requisite L84 solid-lifter
327/360 HP fuel injected small block V-8, 4-speed manual transmission and 4.10
Positraction rear end. In addition to its Z06-specification heavy duty brakes and
special heavy duty suspension, it is equipped with power brakes, radio delete,
aluminized off road exhaust, Soft Ray tinted glass and 6.70-15 Blackwall tires with
full-size wheel covers.

Significantly, the car was owned in the 1970's by noted Corvette Z06 historian and
restorer Eric Gill, and was the subject of a body-off professional restoration by the
Naber Brothers of Houston, Texas maintaining a high standard of correctness. It
has received numerous highly coveted honors including Bloomington Gold Certification
in June 2012, multiple regional NCRS Top Flight Awards in October 2012 and January
2013 and Best in Class Awards at both the Santa Fe Concorso in September 2012
and the Hilton Head Concours d'Elegance in November 2012. In 2013 it was also
displayed at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The car
has been the subject of feature and editorial articles as far back as 1977 and is
documented with volumes of research and show data, owner history, photographs
dating back to the late Sixties and $138,000 in restoration receipts. All show awards,
certificates, judging sheets and a letter of appreciation from the National Corvette
Museum accompany this exceptional offering of Zora Arkus Duntovs masterpiece.
