Restore An Old Corvette

As the all-American sports car, Corvettes are in a category all their own. There is no other production car that comes close to it in terms of enthusiast interest, collectability, and iconic status.

C2 and C3 Corvette Brake System

Patterned after the Grand Sport Corvette race cars of the early sixties, four-wheel disc brakes were standard equipment on 1965 through 1982 Corvettes (although some early 1965 models were sold with drum brakes).

Corvette Power Steering System

Power steering was an option on Corvettes from 1963 to 1976, and became standard equipment in 1977. Although the pumps and gearboxes changed several times, the power steering control valve and cylinder remained pretty much the same.

Early Eighties Corvettes

Although not as valuable nor as fast as a C2 or early C3, early '80's Corvettes are fun and affordable, and if you restore one to factory stock, it will increase in value.
