We purchased this Corvette from a gentleman in Michigan who
was a engineer for General Motors. He purchased the
car in 2002 and soon after completed the restoration.
The body was removed from the the frame. The chassis
was completely restored mechanically and cosmetically, the
car was painted in the correct original color, and the
original numbers matching engine was rebuilt. The car
was restored to very nice driver quality standards, has been
used sparingly since, and still looks great today.
Please peruse all of the photos and numbers below to get a
true scene of how nice, clean, and original this car really
As a side note, this Corvette is not a dealer auction vehicle.
We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our
Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone
that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.
We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the
car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each
picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so
you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a
question about the Corvette, just give us a call.
Please note when checking the numbers that not only do the correct
stampings and casting numbers appear on the parts, but all of the
dates are also chronologically correct. This means that all of
the parts were made and assembled in the correct order. For
example, all of the dates for the individual engine components and
the engine casting date should obviously precede the assembly date
of the engine because the parts had to be produced before they could
be assembled. All of the parts I checked follow this rule and
are dated correctly.

The chrome and other brightwork on the car is in great driver condition with a nice
shine and no notable pitting or rust. The front bumpers do
show some age and have a few blemishes, which are visible in

There are some very faint scratches, thin spots, and marks in the paint that
were much too small to show up in photos, but nothing that is

The wheels are in nice condition

The Black interior
of the Corvette is also in terrific condition.
The seats look just in person just as
they do in the photos with no excessive wear. We
have included photos of the areas most prone to
deterioration. Please note that the majority of the
interior including the dash, door panels, gauge cluster, and
most of the seats appear to be original, which is amazing

noticeable. The dash is in great condition with no

While not technically a correct
term, this Corvette is what some would call "Radio Delete"
in that it came from the factory new with no radio.

The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles well.
Since the engine was completely
rebuilt the car has seen limited use. There is no smoke
when staring or driving the car. The car drives terrifically; it
is tight on the road and at highway speeds.
There are no
strange noises or vibrations.
The clutch feels good, the shifter is tight, and the car does
not pop out of gear. The brakes are
responsive. Please keep in mind the car has drum brakes so they
do not feel like a modern Corvette and could be adjusted.
The parking brake works properly as does the indicator light on
the dash. This
Corvette has plenty of power and is quite fast.

on this era Corvette.

Overall this 1964 Corvette convertible is
in marvelous condition.
It is an excellent
value for a mid year and we have priced it to sell. Numbers matching is extremely
important in Corvette pricing, especially for the mid-years, and the convertible body style
always draws a large premium. While this is not a
Bloomington Gold or NCRS Top Flight restoration, it is a very
high quality driver that is very correct. The originality, the beautiful and desirable color combo, and the great
extent to which the numbers match make this car especially
important. This convertible is the right choice as an automotive investment in
the short and long term.
The "mid year"
Corvettes from 1963-1967 are truly iconic and some of the valued
America cars ever made. One could enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for
more than the purchase price.
