1964 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible - 327ci V8 - 4 Speed Manual Transmission - Red Over Red Interior - Red Hard Top Garage Kept Motors is very excited to feature this 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible. Honestly, it doesnt get any more extraordinary then a red-on-red 60s era Corvette convertible. Think about it, there was a TV show about a similar Corvette, ok Route 66 was filmed in black and white, but most people are certain it was a red Vette! And there have been so many songs written about red Corvettes, again at least thats what people see in their minds when they listen to these tunes. There is Shut Down by the Beach Boys, Deadmans Curve by Jan & Dean, David Balls Riding with Private Malone, George Straights the Best Day and of course Princes Little Red Corvette! We probably should not have told Jimmy our high school intern and lot hand to Google the meaning behind that song, he just keeps playing Prince on repeat in the wash bay and giggling. The point is, in the car as well as pop culture the high-water mark for cool cars is hands down the Little Red Corvette, and this one certainly fits the bill. This Corvette was subjected to an older cosmetic restoration and still shows very well. The Riverside Red paint has been well applied and polished has been well maintained and shines with a deep luster, though there are a few minor nicks here in there, it presents very well. The white convertible top still functions as designed but the there is some minor wear starting to show and this car comes with the red hardtop. Additionally, this car is equipped with the highly desirable aluminum knock off wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires that greatly enhance the road manners of this American classic. Underneath the car is clean and well maintained. The power steering has been recently replaced including all new hoses. The front and rear shocks have also been recently replaced along with the front stabilizer links and new rear spring. The brakes have been recently serviced including a new master cylinder and power brake booster. Inside the cabin of this red rocket the red interior shows well with no rips or tears and only some light sun fading. The dash features full factory instrumentation, simulated wood rim steering wheel, factory floor mats and AM/FM radio. Under the hood sits the 327 V8 with 4bbl carburetor. The engine compartment is well detailed and maintained. Corvettes of this era where some of the first cars to come dressed for performance with a chrome air cleaner, factory aluminum intake, finned aluminum Corvette valve covers and chrome ignition shielding. There really is no greater thrill then driving a manual shifted side pipe car. The factory side exhaust exits just behind the doors and tickle your ears as the high revving small block raises and falls as you work your way through the gears. Drive this car and you begin to understand what all the fuss is about when it comes to Corvettes and why the American Astronauts choose to drive these cars when they werent strapped to rockets. Finding a curvy backroad is what owning a Corvette is all about. Unfortunately, in trying to preserve the legacy and reputation of this American sports car many enthusiasts over restore these cars which means these cars never see more then a well-groomed show field and an enclosed trailer. This is not that car! This car presents well as an original car and will shine at the local cruise in or car show, but its not so perfect you will be afraid to drive this car. This car is the perfect weekend cruiser to jump in and get away and drive and enjoy. Please call if interested or e-mail with any specific questions. Thank you for looking.
