This is one of the legendary 1963 Corvette Grand Sports. Just five of these cars were modified in secret by Zora Arkus-Duntov for racing purposes. This one was driven by Bob Bondurant. Today, a proven original 1963 Grand Sport sells for $6 million to $10 million. The first Grand Sport used a 327 cubic inch engine, but later cars were gifted with a 377 cubic inch engine producing 485 horsepower. Page 3.
1967 Corvette Convertible
This 1967 convertible has been customized in a “race-like” manner, but it’s still a legal street car. If you look closely, you can see the American-flag painted cover on the engine, which would never appear on a real vintage race car. A car like this is great fun at car shows, and performs well on the road, too. Page 12.

Vintage Racing Corvette
Vintage racing is home to many Corvettes that once languished as neglected barn finds. This 1969 C3 427 convertible is owned by Eric Dolson and campaigned in vintage racing events in the Pacific Northwest. Vintage racing organizations are very strict about originality, so this car uses its original engine, transmission, suspension, and brake designs. Page 13.

SCCA Racing Corvette
This C5 is legal to race in SCCA's GT-1 class or in Trans-Am pro racing. You can see here that the bodywork is made to be a “silhouette” approximation of the original C5 Corvette. But as far removed from a street car as this is, it’s still a Corvette and still shares much of the street car’s DNA. Page 6.
Classic Rally Corvette
This C2 ‘Vette is another race-inspired road car. Shown here preparing to compete in the Monte Shelton Northwest Classic Rally, the car features modern steel racing wheels, a cut-down windshield, and a track-ready roll bar. There may be more valuable Corvettes out there, but this one could be the most fun. Page 5.

Corvettes are among the most frequently modified sports cars in the world. Modifying your 'Vette for the street can range from custom one-off body designs commissioned by Chevy as auto show concept cars to simple adding a body kit or wheel package.

What follows is an image gallery of modified Corvettes, ranging from mild to wild.

1962 Custom Corvette
A popular modern modification plan is to take a basket case C1 or C2 Corvette and restore it using all modern underpinnings and drivetrain. The result is a “resto-mod” car that costs well over $100,000 to complete, but which offers a new car driving experience. You can usually tell these cars from original restorations by examining the wheels and brakes, or by checking under the hood. Page 4.

Corvette Summer
For the ultimate tribute to modified ‘Vettes, go and get a copy of Mark Hamill’s 1978 fun movie “Corvette Summer.” The nominal co-star is Annie Potts, who won an Oscar for her performance, but the real star of the show is the most intensely modified Corvette in history. Switched to right-hand drive, this car is the perfect expression of the axiom “it ain’t done until it’s overdone.” The car chase scenes alone are worth the price of the DVD. Page 14.
