Goodguys Fuel Curve Top 10 of 2020 – #2 Rick Cox 1963 Corvette
Editor’s Note: No matter how you look at it, 2020 was a year that nobody expected, nor wished for. Event postponements, cancellations, social distancing, and more had old car enthusiasts out of sorts. Our scene revolves around gathering at events and showing off with others. We’re a community, even if don’t live near each other.
Thankfully, hot rodding is all about overcoming obstacles and making things better. Goodguys and Fuel Curve worked hard in 2020 to cover the altered landscape of the vintage car and truck scene, bringing you fresh and creative content every week – over 400 stories in total. We’re using the last few days of the year to revisit the Top 10 stories of the year. We hope you’ll enjoy this look back as we start to prepare for better times in 2021.
#2 – Rick Cox’s Kindig-It 1963 Corvette Stingray
When the Kindig Crew cruised Rick Cox’s 1963 Corvette Stingray into the showgrounds at the PPG Nationals back in 2019 we knew it was going to be a huge hit. So, there’s no surprise that when the feature on Rick’s Corvette for being a Goodguys 2019 Griot’s Garage Muscle Machine of the Year finalist hit FuelCurve.com on April 8, 2020 it took off and continued to climb.
When it comes to the styling of the first year Corvette Stingray body there’s not much to update or improve upon. Understanding the car’s iconic stature, the crew at Kindig-It Design knew that most of the work on this 1963 Corvette coupe would be in the chassis and driveline, along with some subtle details and a first-rate finish on this classic American sports car.
