1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Color: Riverside Red
Drivetrain: 327 Fuelie/4-speed manual
Finished: November 2019
Story: Our customer purchased this Corvette from another shop and it was in need of repairs and finishing. It honestly drove well but not like we thought it should. After diagnosis, we rebuilt the Fuelie system and found that it had the wrong distributor installed. With the fuel delivery and ignition problems solved, the fuel injected 327 ran like God and Chevrolet intended.
Next, we turned our attention to the electrical system. The problems we found were minor but numerous. After sorting them out, we were pleased with how the car's electrical equipment performed and found the little red Corvette to be much more reliable.
A new set of tires and some suspension adjustments rounded out the job. Overall, we started with a solid project that just needed sorting and love our customer for brining it in.
