Used 1964 Chevrolet Corvette
1964 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Coupe 6.0L LS2 V8Built between 1963 and 1967, the C2 Corvette was a massive departure in design from the car's first generation and ushered in a hardtop coupe for the first time in the model's history. It was also the first Corvette to feature a fully independent rear suspension which made it handle like a true sports car and put it squarely up against anything the Europeans had to offer. This 1964 Corvette has been painstakingly modified to include some of the greatest hits of C2 design features, paired with modern performance and a stunning interior to create a truly one of a kind automobile.The exterior of a C2 coupe is undeniably one of the most stunning designs to ever make it to production- with its exaggerated pontoon fenders and a roofline that sloped down to the rear of the car, ending in a sharp point. Each year of C2 production saw the design altered slightly, with different side vents, unique hoods and the addition of side exhausts. Although this car started life as a 1964, a 1967 style hood with the now infamous stinger hood scoop sits atop the car, giving it a much more aggressive look than what was available in 1964. A set of side exhausts have also been added which not only look outstanding but give the car an outstanding burble at idle and fulfill all of your 1960s muscle car dreams at full throttle. The black paint on this car is absolutely immaculate and considerable time was clearly spent getting it looking just right- not a single wave or anomaly is present. Replacing the C2's standard 15 wheels is a stunning custom set of 18 5-spoke Forgelines that are wrapped in Hankook Evo2 high performance tires with specially finished red lines on the tires- just like the car would have worn when new.During the C2's original run, Chevrolet offered numerous engine options that included both small blocks and big blocks as well as carburetors or fuel injection for certain years. A 4-Speed manual was the standard gearbox but an automatic was also available with some engine choices. Much like the exterior of this car, everything underneath the car has been completely rebuilt to make it faster, more reliable and significantly better to drive. Replacing the original engine is a fuel injected LS2 V8 producing around 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. An engine cover by American Hydrocarbon and polished ancillaries give the engine bay an outstandingly put together look and will make any owner proud to open the hood at a car show and put it on display. This engine is backed by a 5-Speed Tremec automatic transmission that offers quick shifts but thanks to an overdrive gear, can also provide relaxed highway cruising. 1965 was the first year that offered standard 4-wheel disc brakes on a Corvette but this car's original brakes have been replaced with modern discs and calipers at all four wheels and a Wilwood master cylinder under the hood confidence inspiring performance.Although the exterior and mechanical updates to this car are significant, perhaps the most impressive part is when you open the door and get inside the car. The C2's unique cockpit like interior has been taken to the extreme by Corvette specialists Anderson Interiors. Starting with a pair of modern bucket seats, Anderson Interiors hand stitched high quality red leather seat covers with centers that match the original design. Additionally, Anderson Interiors hand stitched custom red carpeting and door panels for the car- both of which look like they could be original but the quality is miles beyond anything that was put in a car at that time. Photos of this interior do not do it justice- the workmanship is truly spectacular. A set of Dakota Digital gauges sit in front of the driver and are designed to look like slightly updated versions of the originals, and a Bluetooth capable stereo with a hidden subwoofer allows you to enjoy your favorite music with clear sound while out on a drive. Crucially, Vintage Air has also been installed so you can enjoy this black car on even the hottest days.The C2 Corvette is without a doubt one of the high points in the model's history- great looks and world beating performance have helped it secure a spot as one of the most beloved Corvettes. This example takes everything that people love about the C2 and turns the knob all the way up- with absolute top quality work from nose to tail, it is clear whoever undertook this project, was passionate about building the best Corvette possible. With just shakedown miles since the ground up restoration was completed, all of the bugs have been worked out and it is now time for you to just get in and enjoy everything that makes this car great.*Watch a Walk Around and Driving Video Here...**View Undercarriage Photos Here...*Features * Chevrolet 6.0L LS2 V8 * 5-Speed Tremec Manual Transmission * Independent Rear Suspension * Digital and Analog Gauge Cluster * Wraparound Rear Window * Front Side Vent Windows * Stainless Interior Trim * Three Spoke Sport Steering Wheel * Two Bucket SeatsFor more information on this 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Custom Coupe or any of our 150+ High-Performance, Exotic, Luxury, and Special Interest Cars always in stock, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants or feel free to drop by our 40,000+ sq ft of Indoor Showrooms in Bellevue, WA - Home of an Exciting Inventory of Luxury, Exotic, High Performance and Collectible Automobiles.
