In 1963 the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport racers rocked the sports car world;
thirty-three years later the fourth generation Corvette was taking its bow by
commemorating the original Grand Sport with a special model. Only five originals
were built and 1,000 1996 Grand Sports issued, both facts certainly noted by the
builder of this 1963 Corvette convertible that has been freshly Resto Modded using
all-1996 vintage underpinnings. The key to the latter-day Grand Sport was its superb
powerplant, the LT4, a traditional pushrod small block V-8 that delivered 330 HP in
stock tune and a stout 400 HP in this application, where it is used in conjunction with
a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission and heavy duty Dana 44 rear end. Beneath the
attractive Sting Ray body is a 1963 Grand Sport specification tube chassis from
Mid America Industries, the perfect host for the 1996 Grand Sport all independent
front and rear suspension complemented with Alden Eagle springs and coilover
shock absorbers. C4 Grand Sport disc brakes are also employed, the Red calipers
and vented discs visible behind 18x9.5-inch front and 18x12-inch rear C6 Z06
aluminum wheels wearing Nitto NT555 rubber. With all that performance on tap,
the builder made the most of the Sting Rays vintage appeal, finishing the car in
new White paint with a Black Stinger on the big block hood and a Black soft top,
finalizing the look with GM factory style side exhaust. The interior is pure stock
with the thoughtful exception of a Flaming River tilt column, billet steering wheel
and 1967 headrest seats from interior king Al Knoch.
