hey Patrick

Good history on the C2's

However, I gotta ask the question, as a C2 owner, how come the C1 history lesson gets to be a sticky thread and not the C2 ???

Us C2 owners don't want to feel left out here!!!

Sure Patrick - pick on the new guy - make him do all the work!!

OK -Done - Now we have equality for the C1 & C2 history lessons.

By the way, if any of the C1 & C2 lovers on the forum have any other information to add to the histories that Patrick has started, lets hear about it.

That's a goof! Here's a good chance to try out your moderator powers and making that a "sticky" thread. Have at it!

A good report Patrick there is also some information that corvette people might not know is on the 1964 corvette. Is how do you tell the early 64 from the later 64 at a clance. The early 64 had a raised pad for the door handle to mount the later one's didn't, also the early 64s had two different coloured shocks front being grey and the rear shocks being black. Just a little more info.

Good Info Ray

Also, the hood on the '64's was different from the '63's. The "pieplate" inserts in the '63 hood were eliminated in '64.

Other running changes during the year:
- early '64 hubcaps were polished - later ones had frosted paint applied.
- early '64 sill plates had 4 hold down screws, the later ones had 6 screws.

One of the interesting things about the mid-year vettes was the constant changes that were implimented, even within a model year.

Ya gotta love em !!!!

:D :D

There is another thing that most pass by on and that is on the early 64 inside on the passenger side the hand hold on the dash early 64s had six screws to hold the molded piece on and the later ones only had four, a little more info.;)
Ray,
I know that you really know your stuff, and that the above statment is just a mix up.

Early '64 grab bar inserts had 4 screws, later '64 and all 65-67's had 6 screws.

That's what you meant isn't it??

:D :D
