The is the first Corvette I drove, when
it was new in 1963 and later bought it in 1970. My cousin drove it for
the first 7 years and the I drove it for about the next six years.
1976: Howard Block, a local painter had a reputation
for excellent work. However this painted lifted down to and including the
primer less than a year later. In 1979 I put this project aside. Today
30 years later it left for another paint and final assembly.
My 1963 coupe was painted 33 years ago by Howard Block. Every Corvette I
ever saw that Howard painted was fabulous. On mine, the paint lifted down
to the primer one year later. After a long hiatus, it left again today Dec
13 for new paint.
