Presenting this amazingly accurate Exoto diecast of the 1963 Grand Sport Coupe #65 as raced during Nassau Speed Week in 1963 by drivers Jim Hall, Augie Pabst, and John Cannon.

Exoto has recently retired this model and no more will ever be built!  Since retirement, this model has already appreciated in value over 300% and will undoubtedly continue to climb.  If you like the Corvette Grand Sport, don't miss this great investment opportunity.....

This Exoto diecast Corvette Grand Sport is an award winning miniature replica in 1:18 scale. No less than 250 precision parts are required to hand assemble this gem. Superb features include a highly detailed V8 small block that's fully wired and plumbed with an authenticly designed suspension on an independent diecast tubular chassis.  It also has a beautifully detailed interior with real carpeting, a highly detailed instrument cluster and genuine fabric seat-belts.  Additional features include, authentic Halibrand Mags, photo-etched windshield wipers, side grills, aluminum rear fender extensions, exclusive Firestone tires, roof antenna, rear window glass with vent openings, and much, much more!

This is master modeling at its best.

Like its two teammates, Corvette Grand Sport 003 was painted in the Mecom Racing Team's typical Cadillac Blue metallic paint. This Corvette Grand Sport, #65, had a black stripe on the hood and no black outline on the number targets.  Chassis 003 saw lots of action during the 1963 Nassau Speed Week. This car was driven by Jim Hall in the 5 lap GT qualifying race in which he finished third behind Thompson's #80. Hall's machine suffered the same overheating differential problems that plagued Thompson, leading to his retirement from the Nassau Tourist Trophy Race. Modified with an external oil cooler, #65 was driven by Augie Pabst in his only Corvette Grand Sport ride to a fourth place finish in the Governor's Cup race later in the week. Then, newcomer John Cannon drove this Corvette Grand Sport to 8th place in the final event of the Nassau Speed Week, the Nassau Trophy race.

Donít miss this opportunity to own a piece of history!
