1963 Chevrolet Corvette Restomod Show Winner

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to present one of the hottest cars in our inventory! We all know mid-year Corvettes are some of the most popular and in demand collector cars on the planet. And when a well-done pro-touring build adds modern ergonomics and world class performance, “in demand" becomes “irresistible". Wrapping GM's impressive Ram Jet 350 in a custom chassis and swaths of silver leather, this incredible roadster is a fully sorted road warrior that's both “sinister" AND “irresistible". And best of all, you can have all that presence and performance without sacrificing any old school style!

Built to be shown and driven, this stunning Sting Ray was completely disassembled, carefully modified and professionally restored by Masterworks Automotive in Madison Heights, Michigan. As you can tell from our high resolution photos, the car is razor-straight, no doubt requiring minimal work to present better-than-new aesthetics. Once its body was stripped and sufficiently prepped, layers of Jet Black base were sealed in clear, detailed with a silver stinger stripe and carefully buffed to a brilliant shine. And today, this top notch Corvette features a great combination of skilled workmanship, modern amenities, and first-rate finishing that sets it apart in a crowded segment of extremely nice cars.

The second generation of America's favorite sports car debuted a much more assertive demeanor thanks to GM's renewed dedication to motorsports. That newfound aggression is especially prevalent in this classic's edgy detailing. The car opens with a 1-piece front clip, which tucks a stainless-trimmed grille behind a colorful header emblem, ‘razor blade' bumpers and bright, bullet-style parking lamps. Above that grille, a familiar Stinger Hood, which looks downright evil, leads the eye to bright stainless trim, lightly tinted glass and a black Stayfast top. At the sides of that hood, a clean profile hangs '67-exclusive heat extractors in front of chrome door handles, red-detailed bowtie mirrors, and chambered and shielded side pipes. And behind those pipes, a '67 Corvette tail section centers a classy Sing Ray emblem and cross-flag-branded fuel cap above traditional taillights and two more ‘razor blade' bumpers.

Check this custom's color-keyed engine bay and you'll find a mean GM Performance Parts Ram Jet 350 that's good for 350 horsepower and 400 lb./ft. of tire-twisting torque. At that top of that Jet Black small block, a center-mount air cleaner forces wind in to a red-detailed intake. At the back of that intake, a chrome-capped ignition swirls fire around polished and Chevrolet-branded valve covers. At the base of those valve covers, Vortec heads and aluminum rockers combine with a hydraulic cam, an iron crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons to create stout 9 to 1 compression. That compression exits through ram's horn-style exhaust manifolds. In front of those manifolds, a modern serpentine system spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. And in front of those ancillaries, a beefy Be Cool radiator founds a large electric puller fan. Aesthetically, both the monochromatic mill and its assortment of bright accessories seem right at home in front of a smoothed, color-keyed firewall. And details like braided fluid lines and bowtie-branded breathers ensure this Chevy runs every bit as good as it looks.

Park this Vette on a lift and you'll find a custom Jamison's chassis that's been bolted to modified and undercoated floor tubs. Behind the stout small block, a reliable Tremec 5-speed twists torque through a tough hydraulic clutch and big, 3.73 gears. That first class drivetrain rolls on a fourth generation Corvette independent suspension that's fitted with high quality coil-overs and Vette Brake Products strut rods. Turns come courtesy of modern power rack-and-pinion steering. Confident stops are provided by color-keyed and power-assisted discs. Exhaust rolls from the previously mentioned manifolds to the aforementioned side pipes. Power flows through Argent American Racing wheels, which spin 245/45ZR17 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports around polished lips and industrial center caps. And everything from this Chevy's brake lines to its fuel filter is professionally finished, superbly detailed and ready for action.

Pop the car's lightweight doors and you'll find an insulated, leather interior that's complete, tasteful and classic. Front and center, a pair of supple buckets anchor supportive headrests between rare shoulder belts. In front of those buckets, a black and silver dual-cowl dash hangs a correct Delco AM/FM radio below rebuilt Corvette gauges. At the sides of that dash, monochromatic door panels center stylish chrome hardware between sculpted armrests and tasteful stainless trim. At the bottom of those panels, clean carpet features stain-free shading thanks to color-keyed floor mats. At the center of that carpet, a full-length console frames a small shifter and chrome power window switches. In front of the driver, a satin-spoke steering wheel spins around a tilting column. And behind the passengers, a small storage compartment displays few signs of use.
