The floor is yours my friend and there was never an argument, I thought your puncuation expression was funny. Where can you come up with all these pictures that fit every question or situation?
Do you remember a few days ago I had a good question and of course at one time the answer and i would give it to someone and then I forgot the answer, I have looked up everything I can think of, googled until my google finger is worn out. Why don't you offer it as a bonus question to yours with the understanding that we don't know the answer unless you do and if not maybe someone out there in hotrod forum will.

OOPS, I forgot to give you the bonus question that I don't remember the answer to.
How many parts does a gen1 Chevy smallblock consist of including block, manifolds etc.

Sure Boothboy I consider myself a not very good student of Corvette history.

Ok, I'll bite Mr Corvette. Where do I come up with the photos, by googling it with the right key words.



Don't go google it now, what is different from the 63 Glove box door from the 64-67?

Trivia thread

I started typing a reply at 1:20 this morning and was almost complete when my computer locked up, everything would not even turn off so I pulled the plug and let the battery run down. Then I wasn't logged in and using numbers the forum had issued me at one time, wouldn't work, used up my five attemps and applied for a new pasword that would not work, five more attempts and now on my third password of the night/morning HE'S BACK.
I owned a beautifull gold with a black stinger, factory fuel injection 63 split window coupe when it was only four years old with around 15,000 miles on it. Fortunately I took pictures of most of the really nice or fast cars I owned because as many of you know because of numerous strokes I suffered total memory loss but thanks to my younger brother with the excelant memory he fills in the facts. My 63 had a four speed, saddle tan leather, original tires and 3-bar spinner hubcaps which had on them Corvette fuel injected. He said that I worried I had too much mony tied up in it because people were leary of fuel injection I had traded with cash involved and had $1,100.00 in the Vette!

Yes Bothboy I would love to have the pictures
Don't remember the glove compartment but some Corvettes did not have doors on the compartment but my guess is that the 63's door did not lock and the 64,65 did.

OK Garrell here you go.
http://www.thelingenfeltercollection...arged-corvette

Poke around his site a little. He's got a lot of interesting cars as well as a crap load of money!

Here's one with a lot of info on Paxton/McCulloch superchargers with lots of pics of early instillation including a 351 Windsor mounted in a airplane!

There is a very distinct difference with the 63 glove box door, much more than if it had a lock or not.

I had a 64 Coupe, never even got to drive it. I bought it as a basket case and had collected all the parts needed when I went through a divorce and lost the car. What sucks is it was WAY better than the wife, should have worked harder at saving the car and loosing the wife instead of the other way around.

Nothing teaches you about a car than buying a basket case and collecting parts. And this was before the net, crap it would be SOOOOOO much easier now. I was blown away at how little some of the Corvette "specialists" know about these cars! I would be looking for something that was 64 only and they wouldn't know this! Bizarre, I guess it's all about passion. I remember one of the parts that I had been searching for were the roof scoop grilles that are on the B pillar right behind the door. I had came up with a couple of them but needed the upper ones on both sides. (they are all different) When this Datsun 240Z comes into the shop with these grilles stuck in the little "door" at the rear corners of the hood! I don't know if you know these little cars but they have this flip open little door for access to the battery and the other side......I forget what for. But this Z had the grilles I needed stuck in these doors where someone had cut a hole. I told the owner I had been looking for them and he said if I replaced the doors with stockers I could have the grilles, and so I did. I REALLY like those cars, closest you can get to a WWII fighter plane if you ask me.

Maybe a 63 still had a fiberglass door and 64-65 had metal doors.

You won, absolutely!

I couldn't find a good photo though, darn it. The 63 had a fiberglass/plastic(?) that had a clear resin look with the emblem buried in the resin as I remember.

The 64-67 had a pot metal three piece door with a brushed stainless (I assume it's stainless) middle section.

It's your floor!

What is the rarest and most desirable Corvette ever built. It could be ordered from any dealer and was a standard factory production car. What year and how many were ordered?

The very first thing that popped in my head was the L-88. With a quick google they made 20.

But a non-production I would say the Grand Sport and only about 6 or something were made.

A friend had one, I remember the flaps. I think the other flap had the windshield washer container/pump there, but I could be wrong.

No guesses, it is a designation that is used on another car today, but you have got to get the car, year and total built, it was not a special order anyone could buy one.
Going to a car show with my hotrod truck until this afternoon, have a good day.
