All hope is not lost if you’ve been itching to add a 1963 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport to your garage. Florida-based replica and restomod specialist Superformance will build you a Corvette Grand Sport with all the original car’s fury, noise, and classical trimmings. The process starts with a factory-assembled rolling chassis equipped with rack and pinion power steering, an aluminum radiator and oil cooler, four-wheel vented disc brakes, and independent front and rear suspension (with Bilstein progressive coilover dampers and H&R springs). Meanwhile, the body shell receives a coat of premium, show-quality PPG paint to turn heads wherever you go.
The entire thing starts at about $115,000 without an engine and driveline. Superformance has a few engine choices ranging from a vintage-inspired, all-aluminum 377 cubic inch small block with updated 48 mm Weber carburetors to an aluminum LS9 with supercharging and fuel injection. All told, prepare to spend about $200,000 for a Superformance Corvette Grand Sport, enormous figures for a vintage sports car. However, Superformance adds that the engines have a two-year, 50,000-mile warranty and are serviceable through local Chevrolet dealerships, perhaps a ray of sunshine bursting through the financial clouds of owning a Grand Sport restomod.
Additional upgrades like cowhide upholstery, power windows, air conditioning, a removable/roofless body (fancy a Superformance Grand Sport Roadster?), and custom livery would hike the price even more, but nobody said vintage restomods come cheap.
