Fastback Coupe
Delmo Johnson, who owns Johnson Chevrolet in Dallas, Texas, received a call from Zora Duntov offering a special '427' Heavy Duty engine for the 1965 Sebring 12 Hour race. Delmo's plans were to run Grand Sport Number Three with co-drivers David Morgan and Ed Sevadjian.

Zora Duntov smuggled the engine out of the experimental department and motor room of the Chevrolet Engineering Center in Warren, Michigan and sent it to the St. Louis Corvette assembly plant. It was then installed in a 1965 Chevrolet Convertible '396'. It was then shipped directly to Johnson Chevrolet in March of 1965.

Duntov instructed Johnson to remove the development engine from the Corvette Roadster and install it in the Grand Sport Coupe. This all took place one week before the Sebring 12 Hour. This basic '396' engine was already over-bored and then enlarged to 427 cubic-inches with a large 4-barrel carburetor and prototype side mounted open headers. Now, only 2 days remained for testing and running.

The Corvette roared down the Sebring back straight at better than 180 mph. This is the earliest known Mark IV '427' engine to be mated with the first M22 transmission in a vehicle test situation.
