Corvette Restoration Guide, 1963-1967
When Chevrolet unveiled the all-new Corvette Sting Ray in the fall of 1962, its St. Louis plant couldn't build them fast enough. At the time, GM did not realize that it had just given birth to a legend. Today, whether it is one of the ground-breaking, split-window 'Vettes of 1963 or a monster L-88, no other American sports car evokes the emotional response or commands as much respect as one of the sleek and swooping "midyear" Corvettes of 1963 through 1967.
A perfectly restored Corvette should be exactly the same as when it rolled off the Chevrolet production line. "Corvette Restoration Guide 1963-1967" gives you all the data and information necessary to complete your project to a factory-fresh appearance. Hundreds of archival photos, line drawings, and views of award-winning restored cars show the variations in the midyear Sting Rays, both major and subtle.
Whether you are restoring your own Sting Ray or are simply a "Corvette-spotter, " this book is your key to understanding all of the key elements that make the Corvettes of 1963-1967 timeless classics in American sports car history.
