This car was one of the most dominating Corvettes in auto racing history. Grady Davis Gulf Oil Racing purchased the Corvette in 1962 from Yenko Chevrolet. The car was campaigned by 'The Flying Dentist,' Dr. Dick Thompson, in the 1962 SCCA-A Production Class. In 14 races, the Gulf Oil 62 Corvette finished first in class 12 times including wins at Daytona and Sebring and captured the 1962 A-Production Championship. It was one of 246 1962 Corvettes equipped with the RPO 687 package, which included heavy-duty suspension and brakes and, in this car's case, a large 37-gallon fuel tank.

The car was sold to Tony Denman at the end of the 1962 season. He raced it throughout 1963, finishing second in class at Daytona while battling against newer Corvettes, Ferrari GTOs and Porsches. At the end of the 1963 season, Denman removed most of the high performance racing parts in order to sell the car as a typical street Corvette. Almost 20 years later, the Corvette was discovered by Rev. Mike Ernst who found the car, now painted red and being driven by a college student as a daily driver. In researching the Corvette, Ernst found the car came with the rare and highly sought after RPO 687 package, which includes the heavy duty brakes, suspension and steering. The Corvette also had a 37-gallon fuel tank, which was common for RPO 687 Corvettes that were raced at the time.

Ernst tracked down the parts Denman had removed from the car and reunited them with the Corvette in May of 1985. The current owner just completed a restoration in 2009, with the original livery of 1962.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing details

Although A4, A3 and A2 formats are very common, I faced the reality of how difficult it can actually be, to frame a print for a reasonable cost. Assuming that‘s what you want to do with a poster you‘ve purchased, right? Have it framed and on display!

So our posters are 30x40cm, 40x50cm and 50x70cm, formats that it's easy to find frames for, in a fair price. However we can also print a larger or custom size (if you already have a frame) at special request. Please email for details.

Care instructions

For the maximum protection of your art, the product is shipped rolled in cardboard tubes. They should not be forced out, to avoid damaging the print.
Once the print is removed from the cardboard tube, find a large, flat and cleared of debris surface, to uncurl them.
Place heavy objects on each corner of the print and let it sit overnight. For best results, leave the print in between the two buffer pieces of paper that it was shipped with inside the tube.
In Revolicius we use pigment inks, that means your artwork' s colours are going to last for a lifetime. However we recommend that you don't expose your poster directly to the sun light for many hours, everyday.
