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.
1965 Corvette Convertible
A fancy paint job is among the best modifications because it’s not permanent. A patriotic paint job like this on a classic 1965 convertible ‘Vette is sure to draw smiles and waves on the road, and it will win trophies at any car show or cruise-in you can find. Page 8.

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.

1967 Corvette Convertible
This 1967 convertible has been customized in a “race-like” manner, but it’s still a legal street car.

A car like this is great fun at car shows, and performs well on the road, too. Page 12.
