  • Corvette Grand Sport

    I had a street Carrera Corvette and wanted to build a SCCA car that might get entered into a proxy. So many cars to decide from, Lotus, Ferrari Corvette. So I thought I would build a few and then decide on mailing day which one goes

    The Car was stripped of paint and the body mods done t turn this street corvette into a race track version This included flaring the fenders and cutting openings in the hood to allow the cooling fins to protrude

    Based on a Roger Penske driven car with a BARC flavour

    Laser printed decals

    Scratch built inline Brass frame

    Cox Mag Lotus wheels

    Independent front wheels

    FF50 motor

    Cooling fins were re-purposed from PC CHIP cooling fins

    Under the close up I see the clear coat has caused the red stripe to bleed so this will require a touch up.

    Other car under consideration are Scratchbuilt Lotus 23C that I made from my own master, a Lotus 30, and maybe a Ferrari 250SWB

    Your Corvette looks really nice! I like the rust on the exhaust pipe.

                        They said "you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" … you did it! … Good job.
