COOL RESTOMOD W/ ZZ4 350 V8, 4 SPD, PWR DISC BRAKES, PS, GREAT PAINT! BOTH TOPS!

If you're a Corvette purist that wants his Sting Ray to look and behave the exact way it did when it left the factory in Bowling Green, then this amazing '63 resto-mod likely won't be your cup of tea. It isn't stock and was never intended to be. Instead, it's a distillation of all that's great about the Corvette legend: powerful small block motors, a quick-shifting 4-speed gearbox, all-day comfortable interior, and the incomparable, knock-out good looks of the Mid-Year Corvette. It takes guts to turn an icon into a resto-mod, but this droptop gets everything right, and it's the most exciting Corvette we've featured in quite some time.

They weren't sneaking around when they painted this one Tuxedo Black, but when you're driving one of the most fantastic shapes of all time, why not draw a crowd? Finish work is excellent top driver-quality, not like a concourse car with its “perfectly imperfect” flaws, but really, really straight and shiny. Quite frankly, for a black classic car that's actually been driven a bit and washed and waxed with great pride over the last several years, it doesn't get much better than this. All the original design elements are still there, from the chrome vents in the ... Please ask for the full description.

COOL RESTOMOD W/ ZZ4 350 V8, 4 SPD, PWR DISC BRAKES, PS, GREAT PAINT! BOTH TOPS!

If you're a Corvette purist that wants his Sting Ray to look and behave the exact way it did when it left the factory in Bowling Green, then this amazing '63 resto-mod likely won't be your cup of tea. It isn't stock and was never intended to be. Instead, it's a distillation of all that's great about the Corvette legend: powerful small block motors, a quick-shifting 4-speed gearbox, all-day comfortable interior, and the incomparable, knock-out good looks of the Mid-Year Corvette. It takes guts to turn an icon into a resto-mod, but this droptop gets everything right, and it's the most exciting Corvette we've featured in quite some time.

They weren't sneaking around when they painted this one Tuxedo Black, but when you're driving one of the most fantastic shapes of all time, why not draw a crowd? Finish work is excellent top driver-quality, not like a concourse car with its "perfectly imperfect" flaws, but really, really straight and shiny. Quite frankly, for a black classic car that's actually been driven a bit and washed and waxed with great pride over the last several years, it doesn't get much better than this. All the original design elements are still there, from the chrome vents in the hood to the ribbed rocker panels to the beautifully sculpted rear end, a look that has defined Corvettes for five generations. A white vinyl stripe on the stinger portion of the hood adds a nice contrast, matching the elegant white convertible top, and the side-pipes at the profiles were added to turn this baby up to 11. Gaps are very good and nothing was shaved or removed during the build, so even with the couple added flashy bits, they did respect the original design and it still looks like a vintage 'Vette through-and-through. Modern two-stage urethane paint has a brilliant shine that's appropriate for a valuable icon like this, and all the chrome has been restored to sparkle against that dark paint. Again, it's not a perfect show car, but it's about as close as you'll get for a classic roadster that you still want to drive and if it's attention that you're after, you'll be swimming in it.

The bright white interior definitely has a correct look to it, with sculpted bucket seats wearing reproduction seat covers that are spot-on. In addition to the seat covers, the carpets and door panels are newer, too, and they all stick to the original formula because looking at those door panels, what else are you really going to do to make them look better? The factory gauges were restored and calibrated to work with the small block V8 up front, and by using a three-spoke steering wheel with a sporty black rim, they've given this car a sophisticated flair that's often lost in old Corvettes with upgraded hardware. A custom retro-style AM/FM/AUX radio in the dash works with the unusual factory vertical orientation so they could keep the stock dashboard intact and you'll be thrilled to see that chrome shifter for the 4-speed manual gearbox that makes it a ton of fun to drive. There's also a matching white convertible top and a black auxiliary hardtop that comes with the car, so if you have the audacity to drive this car in the rain, it's up for it.

The engine is rather tame by current resto-mod standards (and that's a good thing if you ask this writer), but you can't argue with the smart-running ZZ4 350 cubic inch crate motor under the hood that's rated at 350HP. It's reported to only have 15k miles on it, just enough to get things sorted out and warmed-over, and they did it right with upgrades like a big Demon 4-barrel carburetor, aluminum heads, an aluminum intake manifold, ceramic-coated headers, and plenty of chrome throughout to dress it up. Other upgrades include a power 4-wheel disc brakes with a chromed-out dual master cylinder and booster, power steering, fresh wiring, and a big aluminum radiator with electric fan to keep things nice and cool. Underneath, it's incredibly tidy with the new side-pipe exhaust system stealing the show, but you'll also find offset trailing arms, a fiberglass leaf spring in back, and newer hardware and bushings throughout. The stance isn't crazy low, just raked enough to look great over those 17-inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels and staggered 225/50/17 front and 255/50/17 rear performance radials.

Offered with an array of build receipts from the full-blown 2011 restoration, maintenance receipts from 2021, and a thumb drive full of restoration photos that spell out this incredibly cool build. It's not stock, but it's also not radical, so if you like the idea of an early Sting Ray with a few sensible upgrades, perhaps this resto-mod is what you've been waiting for. Call today!
