This 1963 Chevy Corvette Grand Sport 2D Is Very Special and For Sale

This 1963 Chevrolet Grand Sport is a continuation car, built in 2015 and it’s just as authentic as the original. The GM-licensed custom Corvette is looking for a new owner

Social media is often the source of information on some of the most epic cars, ever made. With this in mind, the Facebook group, Exotic Cars For Sale By Owner, currently has a very interesting listing – a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport continuation car, built in 2015, by Duntov Motor Company, which also happens to be a star from an MTV music video.

Continuation car usually implies replica, however, this particular custom Corvette is one of only 17 continuation cars (13, according to some), made by Duntov Motor Company, who was responsible for the original 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport, of which only five were made.

The seller is keen to point out that this is not a resto-mod. Corvette Grand Sport continuation cars were built to GM blueprints and are officially licensed by GM. It even has its own, unique continuation VIN number – this one is #0021.

In addition to being an accurate representation of the original 1963 Corvette Grand Sport, the continuation car was featured in Vette Magazine, issue June 2019, and has been pictured in Alan Sevadjian’s book “Fifty Years of the Corvette Grand Sport”. The car was also featured in an MTV music video, from early 2020, in case it feels like you have seen it somewhere.

The car has plenty of going power, as it’s equipped with a 427 cubic-inch (7.0-liter) small-block V-8 that makes 700 horsepower. Power goes to the rear through a six-speed manual gearbox. The car also features a unique bronze exterior finish, with a black stripe, and a light-brown leather interior, which is in immaculate condition. Not surprising, considering only 3,000 miles were put on it.

In 2018, a professional appraisal was done, by Canadian Appraisal Services Ltd. The custom Corvette, which is located in Crestwood, Kentucky, was valued at $200,000. The car also comes with full documentation, including a detailed build and materials list, as well as all trophies, won at different events and an assortment of literature, relevant to the car.

While the more modern Corvette Grand Sport models are considered, by some to be the sweet spot between adequate power and usability, the classic Grand Sport "Vettes" capture the non-compromising nature of motorsports - something this particular example embodies quite well. It’s also special enough to be uttered in the same sentence as the King Rat Corvette and Richard Smith’s 1968 Beast

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
