1963 CHEVROLET CORVETTE GRAND SPORT: General Motors needed a new car to challenge the dominating Ford Cobras of Carrol Shelby. In early 1962, Zora Arkus Duntov took it upon himself to lead a design and engineering team to produce five Corvette Grand Sport lightweights (approximately 1000 lbs. lighter than a production car). GM management had a ban on racing, so the cars were “sold” to private parties to sort out and race. In November 1963, equipped with a specially tuned 377 cu. in. all-aluminum, 90-degree, V8 engine, furnished with four 58mm DCOE Weber carburetors (the largest available) three cars went to the Bahamas Speed Week and dominated their class. To quote a writer of the event, “Gone were the quiet Corvettes.”
