Noland Adams: 1933 – 2017
Last Wednesday (01/18) was a sad day for Corvette enthusiasts.
This was posted on Noland Adam’s official Facebook page.
We are deeply saddened about the news of Mr. Adams passing. He was a very important figure to the Corvette community. Noland Adams of course wrote the ultimate restoration guide for C1 and C2 Corvettes. He was also inducted into the Corvette Museum Hall of Fame in 2003. Below is a video from The National Corvette Museum featuring Mr. Noland Adams after his induction.
After the body was installed back on the chassis and Ed had finished up his tasks, the 1966 made its way over to the body shop for Corey, Sam, and Tyler to start working on. The guys wasted no time and started by repairing spots they noticed on the doors. Steve walked around the car and took measurements and made sure the vehicle was level and even. Once the doors were repaired, they turned their attention to the rear quarter panels. Upon removal of the rear quarter panels, they located old damage on the rear deck on the driver side. Corey fabricated a bonding strip and bonded it to the backside of the damaged area. After the epoxy had cured, he then cleaned up the area so the repair was not as noticeable.
The 1964 Corvette has received it’s first coat of primer and has now moved over to the mechanical shop to have it’s frame swapped out. Ed and Mike got the vehicle in the air and quickly disconnected the body from the chassis. Upon removal of the old chassis, we discovered the vehicle had once had it’s fuel tank replaced with a original GM replacement tank. Once the chassis was removed, they started to clean the underside and engine compartment to remove all of the old crusty baked on grease from the years. After scrubbing the underside and engine compartment, Ed and Jordan completely blacked out the areas. Ed drilled out the door hinges to install oversized door pins and bushings, while Mike installed the new fender dust shields with staples.

We found another post from another Corvette Forum member advocating our front and rear fender flares for mid-year (C2) Corvettes!
