1963 Corvette Drive Shaft Original

Ray Drive Shaft combinedDrive shaft before restoration. Clearly in this picture you can see the original drive shaft after it was partially cleaned. The original drive shaft in this car was coated with a tar looking substance that obviously dripped and ran when applied at the factory. The clean shiny areas on the drive shaft were coated with this substance before we ran this part through our parts cleaner. Clearly debunking the NCRS idea that the drive shaft was left bare metal when delivered from the St. Louis assembly plant! This shaft may have been installed in bare metal, but before final assembly it was coated with a black coating. This is part of a restoration we are doing in our own shop and only pictured here for documentation only. Not for Sale
