Buying a highly sought-after car in pristine condition is a pretty sound investment when it comes to car collecting, especially when the vehicle is as rare as this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport.
Unlike this replica, this C2 Corvette is a genuine Grand Sport model. It has undergone a complete restoration, and features an original Jim Jones TRACO engine rated at nearly 500hp. This particular Corvette has been the victor of big-time races such as the Goodwood and LeMans Classic.
While being street-legal in the U.S. wouldn’t be a notable point, it seems to be worth mentioning for those who live where the car will be sold – Germany. Documents of authenticity will come with the car, which is valued at 390,000 euros. That’s about $434,000 USD.
We show you tons of cars from various auctions, and always walk that line between the values of form and function. And here we are again, looking at a purpose-built race car that has been fully restored to now be a show piece. You know we’re just itching to take this legendary Corvette for a spin.
