Comments
One of only 618 "396" coupes built. This is a true survivor with original paint, interior, engine block, heads and transmission. The car was fitted at the factory with a 3.70 rear axle ratio, M20 close-ration 4-speed transmission and was shipped to Shellworth Motors (San Jose, CA) as a radio and heater delete example. Due to a customer request, Shellworth Motors installed a radio.

This car was originally sold through Chevrolet Support and Shellworth Motors (San Jose, CA) to Bob Graham of Palo Alto, CA. All of the cars purchased via Chevrolet Support were expected to be raced and equipped accordingly, but this one never made it to the track. Mr. Graham drove the car 41,622 miles until 1975 when he retired it due to a slipping clutch.

In October of 1995, Paige Jones, Randy Jones and Tupper Robinson purchased the car as it was parked 20 earlier. Between 1995 and 1997 a frame on restoration was spearheaded by Dave and Pete at Herlinger's Corvette Repair in Mountain View, CA. This restoration included suspension, engine bay, fuel system, brake system and differential. The original numbers matching engine was rebuilt by John and Bruno at Reggie Jackson's Engine Service. On the dyno, the engine made 435 horsepower and 425 ft. lbs. of torque. The M20 transmission was rebuilt by Randy Jones of HiPerSoar Racing.

In 1997 this car was invited to race at at the Steamboat Springs Vintage Corvette Celebration where it completed the on-track events after receiving 2nd in class at the Concours. In 2002 the car was accepted at the Monterey Historics at Laguna Seca.
