For sale is a 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Coupe, 4spd, Frame Off Restoration, Very Fast, 2 Owner Florida Car.
You are viewing an investment-quality classic American muscle car that is sure to appreciate in value in the upcoming years. This Corvette had a complete frame-off restoration about 2 years ago, and $81,000 was invested in the car and its restoration. This Corvette has a mint condition body and frame. The restorer's notes show that when the car was stripped down to the fiberglass, there were ZERO body repairs. Removing the frame showed NO RUST of any kind, not even surface rust.
The 327 V8 was completely rebuilt, giving it the kind of horsepower the car never knew in 1964. Power is estimated at 400hp. Highlights include: Engine bored .030 over with new TRW pistons 10:1 compression Duntov 30-30 solid cam Eagle Rods Balanced steel crank ARP head studs New Aluminum heads, 205 super duty stainless intake valves Custom intake (fits the height of the runners on the heads) Harland Sharp roller rockers 780 double-pumper Holley carb 140 gallon mechanical fuel pump New electronic ignition with mechanical tach drive 1 7/8 inch x 4 inch side pipes Double Dynomax 3 inch mufflers Original 4 speed transmission with Hays clutch 330 rear end with a new Posi unit, heavy-duty axles.
Other work includes new headlight motors (not rebuilt), an all new brake system, and all of the door parts have been replaced (latches, cranks, rollers and tracks). Everything on the car works.
The odometer reads 25,999, and it is believed the miles are correct. The restorer notes that there was no wear on the cylinder heads and that the block looked brand new after it was hot tanked. The rubber on the brake and clutch had no wear, and the tag that was on the car when he acquired it had expired in 1972.
This is an exceptional 1964 Corvette that has been done right. It looks fantastic, runs VERY strong, and rides solid (no rattles at all). Whether you're looking for a top-shelf classic Corvette to take to shows, an investment for the future, or just a great ride, this 'Vette will fill the bill.
