Fake Big Block Corvettes
As many of you know it is becoming more and more popular for "some" people to "build fake" 1967 Corvette Big Block cars....well if anyone knows of Noel Grace of Performance Plus Corvettes in Hamilton Ohio they recently went out of business because they went bankrupt but they have opened another dealership in another name with someone else as a front man. They are calling themselves Factory Hot Rods and a rumor is ......when they left the old building alot of "extra trim tags" and putty bars for restamping blocks, transmissions, intakes etc....were found. I have heard through the grapevine the Noel Grace has been faking big block corvettes for a long time. Supposedly He has connections and has been purchasing original sheeting for GM paperwork that he gives with his cars so that the customers think they are getting real paperwork which includes POP's, tank stickers. I have also been told he is being sued by at least one former customer and most of these cars had an NCRS Top Flight Award (his cars are so good even NCRS judges didn't figure it out). I am just letting everyone know what I heard because the more these fake cars are sold the less valueable the real ones become. There are ways of telling if your car is fake if you know what to look for. If anyone has any information to add please feel free to contact me.
