Racing Edge is pleased to offer this highly-sought 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe B Production race car for sale.
This racer is steeped in rich performance history both on the open road and competitive racetracks all over the world. It is one of the most desired classic race cars for vintage racing events.
The Chevrolet Corvette is known for its durability, great looks and reasonable track costs. This model has a full, extensive service history including a past restoration to vintage specifications by Herlinger Corvette. All detailed Herlinger invoices have been retained with the car and show detailed mechanical and cosmetic work performed throughout the early 1990s.
The Chevrolet Corvette went on to compete in HMSA, CSRG and SVRA events as documented in two logbooks that come with its sale.
This incredible machine has been well maintained by experts in vintage race cars over the past 30 years. It currently features an Armstrong-built 327 cubic inch V8 engine built in 2009 with 4-speed Muncie transmission, original type front suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. A set of America Racing magnesium wheels and Good Year Blue Streak racing tires complete the racing set up.
When completed, the engine for this Chevrolet Corvette was dyno-tested putting out numbers in the mid-to-high 400 hp. Although the engine still runs, it tends to run hot and thus will need to be freshened prior to running in the 2020 season.
A new fire suppression system was installed in 2013, as well as a brake and differential service, fuel cell service and a new oil cooler. More recently, the limited slip rear end, differential, and transmission were rebuilt, and the clutch replaced.
The condition of this beautiful Chevrolet Corvette is good and consistent with a durable race car that has seen track time. There is no evidence of significant damage. The blue paint is glossy, and the body panels are well-aligned.
The aggressive flat black side pipes deliver a menacing sound, coupled with the yellow American Racing mag wheels. Inside, a Recaro driver’s racing seat (installed in 2013) has been fitted along with a newer roll bar, fitted in the 1990s.
The Chevrolet Corvette comes with the 3:08 ring and pinion, an original driver’s seat, and several miscellaneous Corvette parts removed from the car when it was converted to race configuration. Also included is a 3-inch file folder, filled with receipts dating back to the early 1990s, reference specifications, dyno and build sheets from engine currently installed in the car, suspension setting information, SCCA logbooks dating back to 1990, and a spare set of American Racing mag wheels.
