DESCRIPTIONChevrolet's chief engineer Zora Duntov understood that buyers were still going to use their Corvettes as racing platforms despite Chevrolet's racing ban, and thus created the RPO Z06 as a special performance equipment package available for the Corvette. 1963 was the first year that the Z06 was available for purchase, however it came with a hefty price tag. This '63 Z06 was originally ordered by Harry Mann Chevrolet in Los Angeles, CA with an original production date of May 7th, 1963. 25 years later the Corvette received a complete nut and bolt restoration that restored it to its former glory. Since the restoration, the Corvette has been meticulously cared for and received an NCRS regional Top Flight award with a score of 99%. Today the body sits in a correct coat of Riverside red and looks as good as it did when it rolled out of the factory bound for L.A. The design for the C2 body was greatly influenced by the design of the Mako Shark concept car which offered a sportiness look that had never been seen before. Tilt the hood forward and you'll reveal a detailed engine bay housing a period correct 360hp 327ci FI V8. Open the driver's door and you'll be greeted by a completely restored standard black vinyl interior. The seats, door panels, chrome trim look excellent and the black carpet looks extremely fresh. In front of the driver, a three spoke steering wheel houses the iconic cross flags logo in the center. Behind the steering wheel sits the dash that houses the large tachometer and 160mph speedometer with smaller gauges on either side. Of the 199 Z06s, roughly 124 were ordered without a radio, however in the waterfall console resides the original radio. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information
