[The Restoration of Corvette Grans Sport #004]

Acknowledgement

The following is a documentary of Corvette Grand Sport #004's restoration. The information presented here is intended to offer the reader some insight as to the amount of research and physical labor required to perform a truly authentic restoration.

The author/restorer truly considered it an honor to be able to work on such a significant racecar and in some small way help to perpetuate the efforts of the people who REALLY deserve the accolades: the men who originally designed, built, owned and raced the Corvette Grand Sports.

The author wishes to offer special thanks to the individuals who provided information used during this restoration: notably the late Zora Duntov and the ever energetic Delmo Johnson/Dave Morgan duo, who offered not only their recollections but also their vintage photos and paper documents. Additional thanks go out to Grand Sport owner Jim Jaeger, who availed GS#002 for reference and comparative analysis.

Last but not least, special thanks to Miles Collier and Scott George for being such good stewards of automotive history…and for allowing GS#004 to undergo a transformation back to its "most significant point in time".
