Here we have an absolutely drop dead gorgeous 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Roadster, and this is how it all begun.
Half a century ago Chevrolet Corvette were beginning to proclaim itself one of the top sports cars.
The 1963 Corvette Grand Sport is considered the most valuable and sort after collector Corvette that GM ever developed.
This saga all began in 1962 when Carroll Shelby introduced the new Ford-powered sports car known as the Shelby Cobra.
The Cobra was 1,000 pounds lighter than the soon to be released Sting Ray.
Zora Arkus-Duntov and his team were the brains behind the unique Corvettes.
In order to meet their match with the Cobra, Arkus-Duntov knew him and his team needed to build a lightweight Corvette.
By 1963 the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Roadster was born.
The Grand Sport Roadster was the emblem of its potential with its combination of technical accomplishment and competitive performance.
It was soon to become possible that an American built automobile could beat the legendary sports car marques from Germany, Italy and Britain in endurance racing at Le Mans, Daytona, Targa Florio, Sebring and so forth.
These cars were already legends before ever winning on the racetrack, but once put to the test, they delivered their promise.
Chevrolet only built five of the Grand Sports, classifying these today as exclusive and rare classics.
This car is as nice as they come, it really is stunning and something every collector would love to invest in.
Being one of the most desirable and rarest Corvette cars ever built, it was sold for an enormous $5 million!
