Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1963 ASM Corvette Grand Sport Tribute!!! In 1963 a team lead by Zora Arkus-Duntov aka “the Father of the Corvette” decided to take a swing at the mighty Shelby Cobra on the track and that……is when a legend was born. Under the codename “Project Lightweight” the Grand Sport came to fruition with raw potential and under GM’s nose. Weighing in around 1900lbs the original grand sports had an exceptional power to weight ratio. It wasn’t long before GM management took notice, hard not to when a car your company built hit the headlines when it started dominating at the track. With only 5 built at the time, GM ordered the immediate destruction of the cars. Duntov would not let that happen, so they quickly found their way into private hands. With only 5 built many wanted to get their hands on one but simply couldn’t so it didn’t take long for kits to emerge. That is what we have here. This kit, by D&D was to bring about a lot of originality to the Grand Sports original design. The kit is assembled on D&D tube chassis as well with a roll bar. The blue paint and silver/red stripes are certainly a through back and overall, in good shape with a nice shine. The black and gray leather interior looks sharp and in good order as well.

Now for what you have been waiting for. What could be taking up residency under that iconic hood? As you hit the releases and lift the hood your pulse quickens, and you crack a smile as you draw a deep breath. That smile turns to a rather large grin as your gaze passes over all the aluminum and read the letters, M-E-R-L-I-N! There certainly is no replacement for displacement. Powering this corvette, harking to its legacy and bringing it up to modern times is an aluminum Merlin 572ci V8 with a stated 931 horsepower! That’s naturally aspirated power folks!!! Helping the rear axle understand the colossal requests that the motor is making a Rockland 6-speed manual transmission was selected to put it down! None of this matters if you can’t translate that power to the ground. For this Michelin Pilot Sport 335/35Zr17 sit on the back 275/40ZR17 help grip in the front. She is sporting a Dana 44 rear end and 3:08 gear ratio. Couple that with the 6-speed and this powerhouse can still be a fun cruiser.

Current owner acquired the kit around 16 years ago and build was finally completed in 2015. Only 4k miles has elapsed since the assembly was completed. Since the car is an assembled kit the car is assigned a vin and title issued for the year completed. This Corvette is titled as a 2015 Assembled (ASM) Corvette. The title is clean and clear and ready to be transferred into your name now. Every kit is slighty unique but that is an understatement for this one. When you are behind the wheel of this car you feel unstoppable, and it evokes a nostalgia you can’t possibly replicate! Options on this Corvette are: A/C, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Leather Interior, Rear Camera, Power Windows/Mirrors, Seat Belts, Posi Traction, and Racing Wheels. This 1963 ASM Corvette Grand Sport Tribute is offered by our Louisville Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
