1963 Corvette Grand Sport #003
Zora Arkus-Duntov and his engineers began a mission to meet the challenge of the purpose built sports racers of Europe and the Shelby Cobra in the U.S. The Grand Sport was already on the drawing board at Chevrolet, a built-for-racing specialty car using all lightweight materials, 4-wheel disc brakes, 4-wheel independent suspension and a large displacement American V8 engine. GM still respected a 1957 AMA ban on direct involvement in racing. The planned production of 125 cars would be sold to amateur race teams outside GM to skirt the ban. Word of the project reached GM's Chairman and the word came down that all racing efforts were to be stopped. While all factory racing efforts were officially dead, 3 of the 5 coupes (#003, 004, and 005) were shipped to Nassau for the annual Speed Week for John Mecon heading the 'private' team entry. After a good result at Nassau the engineers began to solve problems discovered at events. Two of the Grand Sport Coupes (#001 & 002) roofs were removed to reduce their profile and special hoods were added to all to relieve an engine compartment pressure problem. The success at Nassau and the publicity that followed again brought the Grand Sport project to the attention of GM executives who ordered that the cars be destroyed. Insiders at Chevrolet immediately got the coupes into private hands while the roadsters remained hidden until sold to Penske in 1966.
