Chevrolet Corvette grand sport 1963

Font size

The Grand Sport replica was built on a a custom fabricated tube-frame steel chassis from the fourth generation Corvette, but with design elements similar to the Grand Sport launched back in the ’60s. By paying special attention to every detail, Mongoose managed to obtain a perfect replica of the sports car.
The car features a GS frame designed by Altair engineering - one of the largest aircraft-engineering firms in the country - and a suspension from 88-96MY Corvettes with fully adjustable front and rear coil over shocks. The hood, doors, and deck lid are all custom made and seem to fit perfectly with the overall scheme of the car.


Mongoose Motors couldn’t hold anything back when deciding on the engine for this bad boy, after all, the movie is called Fast Five. So to live up to the name, they placed a 502-cubic-inch GM big-block V8 rated at 502 hp. It’s not as impressive as the original engine used in the Grand Sport model, but it’s close enough to be just as awesome. Back in 1963, Chevrolet was using a 377 cubic inch displacement, all-aluminum, small block with four Weber side-draft carburetors, rated at 550 HP.
