Car description

Justboughta 63 SWC for my next project; so I'm selling my 63 convertible pro-touring to make room. Build was completed insummer 2016 andhas ~500 miles on it now.Everything on this car is well engineered and top quality, not some cheap LS swap.I’ve had many resto-mods with OEM frames and upgraded suspension components, but they can’tbe compared to this build. It really is like driving a brand new 2016 sports car. If you watched Barrett Jackson - Scottsdale recently, you saw comparable cars going for $250K and up The only difference between this car and those is that they are more show-car oriented, and this was intended to be driven and enjoyed; so I didn't add all the little bells & whistles andpointless shiny things in places that don't get seen. This is a great value for anyone looking for a real driver’s pro-touring car that needs absolutely nothing.
• Body:
o Original ’63 body with clear title
o GTS Customs widened rear quarters
o New Porsche Anthracite Brown paint
o All chrome newly re-plated
o All stainless trim straightened & polished
o New Detroit Speed headlight motor kit (much better than OEM motors)
o This car has a removable hard-top only, but the next owner can add a soft-top if desired. If you're handy and can do the work yourself, figure ~$3,500 in parts and a couple ofweekendsof work.Will require a little fiberglass work tonotch the tubbedrear wheel wells to clear the soft-top frame.
o I have some new repro emblems for the nose, deck and front fenders that I’ll include if you want them. I prefer the clean look with no emblems; so I left them off.
• Chassis:
o SRIII frame powder coated satin black
o C6 Corvette suspension (front and rear)
o QA1 single-adjustable shocks and Hypercoil springs
o Newly rebuilt C4 (’84-87) Corvette steering rack
o New C6 Z06 brakes (13”-6 piston front; 12”-4 piston rear)
 New Hydroboost brake booster
 New Wilwood 1 1/8” bore MC with adjustable proportioning block
 All new stainless steel brakes lines throughout
o C6 Z06 polished aluminum split-spoke wheels (OEM Speedlines / 18” front; 19” rear)
o New Nitto Invo tires (275-35 front; 325-30 rear)
• Drivetrain:
o New LS 376/480 GM crate engine with ~16 months of warrantee remaining (GM rates it at 495HP/473 lb-ft torque; has not been on a dyno)
 New GM engine harness & controller with OEM tune for this crate engine’s specs
 New GM Corvette-style accessory drive kit
 New DeWitts LS-swap radiator with 16" dia. SPAL electric puller fan (The engine and fan thermostats are both 195 degree units. With the AC on a 100+ degree Texas summer day, it wants to run at about 205-210; so it's allgood)
 Exhaust:
• Stainless Works LS headers for side pipes
• Custom bent 4” dia. turn-out tubes mated with Hooker 4” polished stainless side pipes (all polished stainless) with STS spiral baffles
 Custom cold air intake routed through the FI hole in the OEM radiator support
 New Rock Valley stainless steel gas tank with internal fuel pump
o New TKO600RR 5-speed transmission (.82:1 5th gear ratio) with~4 months of warrantee remaining
 New Hydramax hydraulic clutch kit and new clutch rated for 525HP
o New Gen 3 Viper DANA44HD differential with 3.55:1 gear set (matched with this transmission, gives 10.2:1 final drive ratio in 1st gear)
o New custom-built half shafts from The Driveshaft Shop rated for 1200HP
• Interior:
o Almost everything in the interior is new reproduction
o C5 Z06 seats with new all-leather seat covers (headrest embroidery omitted; the pattern matches well with 63/64 door panel design and looks like they belong)
o New Dakota Digital VHX Direct-Fit gauges with black alloy face and white back-lighting
 Dakota Digital dimmer switch in place of lighter on dash
 Dakota Digital BIM-01 unit included for reading engine diagnostics from ODBII port mounted under dash.
o New Vintage Air system with polished aluminum 3 dial controller mounted on center console (looks like it could have come that way)
o Dash center shaved for a clean appearance
o No stereo system; can be added by next owner if desired, but when the exhaust sounds so good, who wants to hear music?!
