Offered from the estate of Erickson Shirley, a highly experienced vintage racer and collector, this 1964 Chevrolet Corvette carries known ownership dating to the mid-1980s, when this former SCCA racer was spotted in Competition Press/ Autoweek and acquired by Bill Morrison. Racing fans will recognize Morrison’s name as a co-driver with Tony DeLorenzo’s Owens-Corning Corvette team and the 1977 SCCA A-Production National champion. Subsequent owners include Mark Brown, Bill Gagliano, and Tommy Thompson.

Featuring blue and yellow Sunoco-style livery and 1960s Thompson Pontiac sponsorship graphics, this potent vintage racer is powered by a 331 cid Chevy small block built by Shaver Specialties, including CNC-ported GM iron heads, a factory intake, Holley carburetor, roller cam, plain rockers, and electronic ignition. A race-prepped, “S” ratio Super T10 four-speed manual gearbox sends the power via a Quarter Master 7.25 clutch to a 12-bolt, 3.73:1 rear end by Tom’s Differentials, including a stock Corvette 10-bolt housing and billet axles. Brakes are RPO J56-style, with dual-pin calipers and stock rotors. This proven racer has competed at many top venues, including the Coronado Speed Festival, Monterey Historic, Mid-Ohio, Moroso Motorsports Park, and Road America. Featuring great looks and interesting provenance, this 1964 Corvette benefits from the expert attention of Dennison International Motorsports, and is accompanied by numerous spares, and stands ready for its new owner.
