1963 Corvette Electronic Components

In this post, multiple 1963 Corvette electronic components are refurbished and installed.  We  installed the gauge cluster and all of its components in the 1963 corvette.  We blasted and painted the jack and handle.  After the jack and Handle were refurbished, the team installed the radio, defroster duct, radio speaker, speaker grill, and voltage regulator into the 1963 Corvette.

Here is the speaker grill after repainting and installation.

The original headlight switch (correct) after a little walnut shell blasting to clean it up.  We found that one of the terminals on the switch was broken so we disassembled the switch, cleaned all the terminals, fixed the broken terminal, and re-zinced the metal cover plate.

Here is the headlight switch after the rebuild.

The original cigarette lighter was found to be dated and contained an original 63′ mark.

The element was crusty and rusted, which was then bead blasted.  The element was then checked to see if it functioned properly for the PV.

We disassembled and repainted the head light switch.
