      Here's a pic of a '63 Roadster with a code correct Sebring Silver exterior that I missed out on.
      I just loved the year specific hood and knock-off wheels.

        Awesome Steve, awesome. I like the yellow, just always had a thing for it. Maybe its cuz of the Butternut 68 Camaro that my dad wouldn't let me buy when I was 14...

        Anyway, congrats on the acquisition. May it bring you much pleasure and satisfaction.

          Hey, good for you! That body style is one of my all time favorites. If I ever buy a vette, that's what it'll be. Only down side is bigger guys like me are a little cramped inside, but it's worth it!

            Arild, that is not a "Stinger" hood, rather it's the special "Power Blister" hood (a funnel-shaped air scoop),
            that 1965 Corvettes with the newly optional 396-cid "big-block" V-8 came with.
            ... but still classy !!
            ;)

            Here is an example of a "Stinger" hood (a large front-opening air scoop over the center bulge),
            that was released in 1967 for Big-block cars, instead of the previous power blister.

              Keep the yellowish cream colour, one of my favorite colours for a 60's car for some reason. Not really a fan of either of the blues or the silver. Black is nice but I still like the yellow better.

                    Yep, that '66 with the BB 427ci is sporting the "Power Blister" hood, very nice ride.
                    Is it yours ?

                        Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement everyone !


                        91Bird, I have never been one for the flashy "look at me" paint schemes.
                        Would like to stick with an original color and so far I am thinking Sebring Silver or Marina Blue.
                        Still contemplating though.
                        You got any ideas ?
                        I have never been a fan of Butternut...reminds me of puss....I like Sebring Silver...or black...can never go wrond witha black vette....

                          I so badly want a Stinger hood with an all aluminum 406ci SBC hanging off a 5 or 6-speed manual, with my Hurst shifter bangin' the gears !!!



                          Here is one that I had considered buying, but it had some damage and they wanted $1,200 for it.

                              in this case - the silver is less " look at me" than the marina blue - but I love blue - so - that's my favorite.

                              i say a wheel similar to the wheels on the silver 63 you missed out on would be very huge improvement over the caps and still keep a very original look to the overall package.
                              There's always something new to learn.

                                I agree John, those are aftermarket, bolt on "knock-off" wheels.

                                I know everyone has heard of Redlines (mostly due to Hot Wheels).
                                ... but has anyone else heard of "Goldline" tires ?
                                I think Goldlines & bolt on "knock-off" wheels would look great on my car.
