Skip’s C8 Convertible
In 1967 I had saved $4,000 for 4 years of college (yes! $1000/year Canisius College, Buffalo NY). I was fortunate to receive a full 4 year scholarship, so purchased a base 327/300 Marina Blue convertible February 1967…. list $4,600…. paid $3925! Sold the C2 in 1976 (I know mistake now, but then could not buy without selling). I since have bought/sold (had to sell to buy) 10 Corvettes including C2s, C3s, C4’s, C6s and C7s. Currently owner of a 2017 C7 coupe and C8 above, which was manufactured in September 2020…. first month of C8 HTC production. At 77 years of age, my last, but far and away, the best!
This amazing “Tanker” was completely restored around ’12. Very little was known at the time about the car, so AutoAncestry.com was brought in to do a search for all previous owners and information on the car. The N.C.R.S. Shipping Data Report was also ordered and found that the car had been built on May 19, 1964, and delivered to Guaranty Chevrolet in San Diego, California. Search results showed it was ordered by a gentleman in the Navy, who must have had some racing in mind. The car is equipped with not only the N03, 36.5-gallon gas tank option, but also transistor ignition (offered for the first time in 1964), the L84 fuel injected engine, J56 vented metallic racing brakes, F40 suspension, and quick take off wheels. In other words, all the 1963 Z06 package options. The color combo of Tuxedo Black exterior with a White leather interior and Black carpets is also quite unique and very rare. No racing history has been found, but the original owner was transferred to Ft. Carson, Colorado in the late ‘60s. He then drove or moved the car, in the early ‘70s, to Cincinnati, Ohio and sold it to his father for $6100, it appears. The car then sat outside his father’s house for several years before a man bought it. It had been advertised in the local paper as needing an engine. Apparently, the original engine had been blown. It was sold for $1300 to another man in 1975, who installed a 350ci small block in it to move the car to his garage, as his plan was to restore it someday and work on it.
A local Cincinnati Corvette lover and businessman saw the car, as well as the Trim Tag, and various parts in boxes. He also noticed the original jacking sticker under the carpet put over the tank cover. That sticker indicated it originally came with factory knock-off wheels.
He spent the next 20 years trying to buy it and finally succeeded in 2004. At the time, it had been painted Resale Red, but the original White leather interior was still in the car, but very dirty. The T.I. and J56 brake parts were in boxes, along with much of the F.I. parts.
Knowing it would take a great deal of money and time to restore the car back to original, the owner sold it to D&A Corvettes, who spent several years pulling the body and restoring everything, including repainting it in lacquer and installing original ’64 vintage knock-offs and ’64 vintage bias ply tires. He also installed a restoration L84 engine with all proper date codes and a pad stamp that only lost 25 points in N.C.R.S. National judging, due to the “RX” suffix not being typical factory production.
After the current owner purchased the car, he had the F.I. unit refreshed, worked on the brakes, and made sure all N.C.R.S. judging items were correct and operated properly. He then drove it to Cars and Coffee events and a couple of car shows, and then started it through N.C.R.S. Flight judging.
The originality and condition are high on this car, it scored 96.5 at the Texas Regional in 2017, and then at the N.C.R.S. National Convention in Las Vegas in 2018, where it scored a 97.1. It was also taken to the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals in ’22, along with his entire C2 tanker collection for the “Corvette Legends” display, sponsored by none other than Corvette Mike.
This is a truly a unique Corvette. And most likely one of one. The car runs and operates very well. The car currently has American Mags and radials on it for driving purposes, but the original tires and wheels are included for show and judging.
Here is a ’65 fuel injected Coupe with a matching #’s engine that really makes quite a first impression. As well as a second one!
The meticulously done frame-off restoration was completed around ’20 and still looks ultra fresh! The paint is show-quality and it’s equipped with some highly desirable options, such as, side exhaust system, knock off wheels wrapped in Gold line bias ply tires.
Fantastic looking and driving ’65!
This beautiful Black Coupe has spent its life right here in sunny
