Lately we''ve been getting a lot of mid-year Corvettes coming through our showrooms, but this 1964 roadster stands out as one the finest one we''ve ever had. No, it''s not matching-numbers, but if quality matters more to you than abstract serial numbers, then this is your next Corvette. This car has the kind of quality that you see as you''re walking up to it, and almost everyone says, "Wow, that''s a nice car!" when they see it for the first time. Something about the depth of the paint, the alignment of the bodywork, and the overall presentation that gets all the details right makes it stand above the rest. And quite honestly, there''s a lot of competition for your eyes in our showroom! I have to imagine that several hundred hours went into the prep work, getting the fiberglass substrate as smooth and blemish-free as possible. Every gap looks like it was drawn with a pencil, exactly the same width and laser-straight. The headlight doors fit flush and operate smoothly, the chrome bumpers hug the body shell so tightly there''s barely room for a piece of paper between them, and all the little pieces were either polished, plated, or replaced to make it sparkle. Photos just don''t do this one justice. The bright red interior is equally dazzling, restored to stock specifications using the utmost care and precision. Beautiful bucket seats show only very, very minor signs of use (after all, who could resist taking a spin now and then?), and with clear floor mats protecting the carpets, everything else looks like new. The door panels are nicely detailed with lots of chrome hardware and blend into a dashboard full of gauges with crisp, bright markings. The wood-rimmed steering wheel and chrome knob for the 4-speed gearbox are your primary interfaces with the car, and the twin cockpit interior provides a fantastic place to go about the business of driving. There''s an AM/FM radio in the center stack and even the clock keeps time, suggesting that no detail has been left unattended. The white convertible top fits well and offers a crystal clear rear window, and a matching red hardtop is included with the sale. The engine is a 327 cubic inch V8 (what else?) rebuilt to L76 specifications. That means a very stout 365 horsepower thanks to a 4-barrel carb under that chrome air cleaner and one heck of a big camshaft. Nevertheless, it''s docile enough for street use, providing the perfect compromise between all-out performance and daily driver comfort, a balance for which Corvettes were justifiably famous. It''s nicely finished, with Chevy Orange paint on the block, cast aluminum valve covers, and bright trim in all the right places, plus gear like the blue-stripe hoses and tower hose clamps, refinished exhaust manifolds, and correct fasteners throughout. The chassis is very neatly finished, including a cackling chambered exhaust system that really sets the tone (no pun intended). Beautiful knock-off wheels were finally available in 1964, with this car wearing appropriate 205/75/15 gold-line radials. It''s funny how so many enthusiasts get hung up on numbers and miss the fact that these are machines built to be driven. If that''s how you like to use your hardware, this Corvette is ready to blow you away. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
