1967 needs repainting I have a 1967 that needs to be repainted. Anyone know of a paint shop they could recommend in the Wash, DC area or Northern VA? Stu 5/17/2021 1:40:26 PM2
Voltage regulator problem? On my 1967 327/350 I recently upgraded from original points distributor to new direct replacement electronic with matching coil. Alternator is correct brand new 63 amp replacement from Corvette supplier. Now when running, ammeter indicates charging rate pegged at 40+ amps which I'm sure is incorrect. Do I need a specific voltage regulator for the electronic distributor or can the regulator be adjusted accordingly? Voltage regulator is relatively new also but appeared to function normally with the original distributor. Thank you. Richard Barkholz 8/8/2020 7:23:15 AM0
1967 coupe-327/300 poor brakes This car is new to me, I purchased it and drove it home from Ohio to VT. The brakes are quite poor, high pedal effort and long stopping distances. The Calipers are from Lonestar Caliper Company and so is the master cylinder. All parts have Stainless steel sleeves. I do not know what Pads are in the calipers. The pedal stays firm but is just doesn't stop well. I bled the master cylinder & I have pressure bled the system and Gravity bled the system with no improvement. I can't get the brakes to lock up on dry ground. Jack Mosley 1/5/2019 10:40:06 AM6
1965 4Speed Transmission Leak My 4 speed transmission is leaking oil between the transmission and the bellhousing. I understand that its probably the shaft seal underneath the input shaft. Does anyone know how to fix this without pulling the transmission out. I understand it can be done! Andy Andy Bedoian 1/22/2018 6:40:18 PM6

retractable headlights 1990 Coupe Why do the retractable headlights on my 1990 Corvette work perfectly in cold weather and become balky in hot weather. By hot weather I mean Arizona HOT! Philip Kiraly 11/15/2011 8:13:06 AM2
Heat insulation for '67 Corvette 427/400 side pipes, etc. I have just wrapped my side pipes in "header wrap" and it has been very effective so far. Does anybody know if this can cause any longterm problems due to keeping the heat in or anything else? I am also thinking of using some type of "padding" under the carpeting and under the console...any suggestions? Thanks a lot!! Randy Randy 7/21/2011 6:26:12 PM1
Clutch pedal shaft Any info or tips on replacing the clutch pedal shaft on my '64. The replacement part says it is a weld on fix. I removed the clutch pedal but have left the shaft in the brake pedal. Any thing I need to know or little tricks would be greatly appreciated. I haven"t ordered any parts yet but can see I will need to order shaft and four bushings, is that all or am I missing something else. Thanks Mike Porter 1/6/2011 4:23:03 PM1
C2 suspension I have a '65. I am considering doing a VBP suspension upgrade. I want to improve handling, but ride improvement will be just as important. I am looking for feedback from anyone who has done a suspension upgrade. Did you use VBP or another brand? Was the upgrade worth it, or would it have been better to stay with the stock suspension?

vibration I have a problem in that the inside rear view mirror on my 66 Coupe vibrates at speeds upwards of 75 mph. How do I resolve this problem. Wheel balance is not the problem, loose screws are not the problem. Help..... Larry Townsend 2/23/2010 4:27:22 PM1

Where can I find the VIN on a C2 frame/body? I am restoring a '65 Vette that is missing the VIN plate (plate should be under the glove compartment). Need to find the VIN (on the frame/body) so it can be verified and vehicle registered with the DMV. Philip Soloman 8/12/2008 11:59:43 PM2

Reproduction KO Wheels I am looking to put some everyday driving wheels on my 64. I have found Bolt-On KO reproductions from several people in the $1,800 range. I have also found a much nicer looking repro set on for $2900. I have not seen that set sold anywhere else. Does anyone have any experience with these or have recommendations?
