1964 CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE (365 HP)


UNDER CONTRACT

THE STORY

General Motors designer Harley Earl is credited with convincing GM to build a two-seat sports car for the American market.

Launched in 1953, the resulting Chevrolet Corvette quickly earned the mantle of “America’s Sport’s Car” and the model is still produced today.

1964 was the second year of the Corvette “Stingray” and second year for the C2 generation of cars.

Subtle changes were made to that year including deleting the faux hood vents, adding more sound insulation, revised transmission mounts and the introduction of the fabled 4 speed Muncie manual transmission.

The 1964 Corvette completed the quarter-mile run in 14.2 seconds at a speed of 161kmph and a 0-100kmph time of just 5.6 seconds.

THE CAR

This gorgeous red on red convertible Corvette Stingray has a 365HP, solid lifter NOM 327ci Chevrolet V8 engine boasting the highest horse-power rating for the non-fuel injected model.

The engine has solid lifters, large 4-barrel Holley carburettor (specific to the 365HP model), special cam and 11.25:1 compression ratio. It is an extremely smooth and powerful unit.

Recently finished in beautiful factory Riverside Red duco (in Glasurit paint) with white soft top, the car retains its 4-speed close ratio manual Muncie transmission, posi-traction rear end, power boosted brakes with disc brake front end and 4-wheel independent suspension.

This car has its factory red interior with new seat trims, new carpet when restored, original working radio, new knock off wheels and near-new white wall tyres. New chrome bumper bars and an alternator have also been fitted. The car has its original jack.

With comfortable seats, outstanding handling and bags of power, this is a beautiful car that is an absolute blast to drive.
