Purchased in Hawaii in 2009, our split window coupe has a 327 fuel injected engine and the very rare Heater Delete option. Our Corvette was restored over a 4 year period using original 1963 components. Modifications were limited to those popular in the late 1960's. Our vision... Period Correct/Era Modified.

Protecting the tools and toys.
Exhausting the fumes through the doggie door.
I had to use an old siphon paint gun to spray up in the wheel wells. A gravity gun, one with the paint canister on top, couldn't reach.
These photos were over exposed in order to show the detail in the wheel wells. The car is still green.
Only the wheel wells were painted in 1963. The rest of the fiberglass under body was left unpainted.
The engine compartment turned out exceptionally nice.
