Harry Mann Chevrolet was the largest Corvette dealer in America when the new 1963 Sting Ray Z06 made its race debut at the October 1962 Times Grand Prix in Riverside, CA. However, driver Gary Pickens was relegated to the sidelines, as Chevrolet had released only six RPO Z06 competition Corvettes and none would be available to the Mann dealership until December. Undaunted, Mann and Pickens took a regular 1963 Corvette Split-Window coupe with the L84 fuel-injected 360-hp engine and built their own Z06-spec coupe to campaign the following year. The car received numerous modifications including a roll cage, comprehensive weight-reduction…

This beautifully restored second-year ’Vette has covered fewer than 34,000 miles with three different owners in the 60 years since it rolled off the line in St. Louis. Its original owner kept the car only briefly and drove it sparingly before its second owner acquired it in 1958 with a mere 2,000 miles on the register. It was a carefully loved and well-maintained car, and only 29,000 miles were driven in the subsequent 48 years. The current owner purchased the car in fall of 2006 as a nicely preserved, original car. In January 2010, a careful and thorough two-year restoration…

For the 1996 model year, Chevrolet decided that a very special Corvette was needed to commemorate the end of the highly successful C4 generation. Dubbed the Grand Sport, this special car was named after the famous lightweight factory Corvette racers of the early ’60s. Echoing the original, the new Grand Sport featured a special Admiral Blue exterior with an Arctic White stripe over the hood and rear deck, two red hash-mark stripes over the left front fender, black-spoke ZR-1-style wheels, chrome badging, and GS embroidery on the headrests. But what really made the car so special was the one-year-only LT4…
