Default 1963 Corvette Grand Sport project video series

Hello everybody, hope you all are doing good and coping with everything going on. I bought myself a new project car and a good friend of mine wanted to do a video series of the whole build. I hope you guys can understand what Iím trying to say since english is only my 3rd language.

Episode 1 - Introduction


Jay

I worked on the restoration of a Real One #5 back in the '80s

Yes, that is #5, and the pictures I posted were Bill Towers old garage that was about to fall in. The Blue car next to the GS was one of the Daytona Speed Record Cars. I haven't talked to Bill in years and hope never to see him again.



I have pictures of the Red SR-2 that is behind the crowd in the Video at home.

Here is the SR-2 and myself at the NCRS Cypress Gardens Nationals (1983?)



and the '57 I bought from Bill ( 1st picture at his house & 2nd at NCRS Cypress Gardens 1985?) Bill had just purchased the SR-2, needed to pay for it, so he sold a few cars. A '67 Tri-Power Convertible was ready to go and Bill got into an accident with a Hit & Run and the car was Totalled. I had the choice of the '57 or a '66 Big Block Coupe.
