Finally a solution for 1963-64 Corvette owners who want to use 1965-67 power brake dual reservoir master cylinder! Historically the only option 1963-64 owners had when converting to the more efficient power brake dual reservoir master cylinder system was to purchase a 1965-67 hood or cut a piece from their original hood for clearance. Our technicians at Paragon Vintage solved this problem by creating an all new fiberglass insert to modify your original hood, yet retain that factory appearance. Our insert was created by using an original 1965 hood as a mold, giving you a perfect fit. Using the insert as a guide, simple mark off the area on your hood and cut away the insert area. Bond the insert in place and patch up the seam with some minor glass work, now you’re ready to paint! Update your classic ride without suffering any styling.
Most, if not all, of the floor pans of 1963-67 Corvettes are badly cracked and should be repaired, especially before any serious restoration begins. Our illustrated Bulkhead Repair Manual will guide you through the restoration and repair of fractured transmission/drive shaft tunnels. The instructions clearly outline the removal and reinstallation of the metal bulkhead divider panel behind the seats, as well as the fiberglass repair process. The entire strength of the floor area is centered at the rear of the tunnel area (bulkhead) and damage can be easily hidden by the metal divider panel. If you are not sure about the structural integrity of your floor, simply remove the rivets holding the metal divider and have a look. If you see ANY cracks, you need our easy to follow repair guide. This 10 page manual includes step-by-step color photos to walk you through the repair. The manual is available in a printed book or as a PDF digital download. List price is $5.00

- Remove the seat track from seat frame.
- Position the track so that you are looking at the bottom (View A). Slide inner track toward the front, so that you can access the dimple on the outer case. Remove the dimple that is located just inside of the hole by striking with a blunt punch and hammer.
- Turn over the seat track (View B), and slide the inner track toward the rear. Be careful to catch both roller wheels and the old guides as they fall out.
- Slide the inner track all the way to the front and put the roller in place and install the guides into the slots, one on each side.
- Now slide the track back towards the rear, and install the guides and roller at this end.
- Re-punch the dimple so that the roller cannot advance past it.
- Re-install seat track to seat frame.
- While the spring and pawls can be replaced on the car, it is much easier to remove the handle assembly from the car first.
- Remove the stop pin by lining up the stop pin with the access hole and using a flat punch to drive the pin out from the bottom access hole. Do not twist the stop pin to try and remove it or it will break due the knurling on the pin.
- Remove the handle shaft, the old pawls and the spring from their tube.
- Place the new pawls in their slot as per illustration and place the new spring over the tabs as you slide the pawl in place.
- Holding the pawls up, re-insert the handle and tap the stop pin into place.
- Set control rod bell crank (A) in Park position.
- Set control shaft lever (B) in Park position.
- With both the bell crank and lever held in Park position, assemble control rod (C) to lever (B), then adjust clevis on rod (C) for easy entry into lever (A).

A GM Restoration Part is a part no longer being manufactured by GM, but the specs have been licensed to an approved manufacturer of automotive parts. Licensed manufacturers build these parts as close as possible to the original GM specifications, and whenever it is possible, the parts are manufactured using the original factory tooling. GM Restoration Parts include sheet metal, Corvette fiberglass body panels, interior trim, emblems, decals, suspension components, glass, carpet, lenses, belts and hoses, and much more. In an overview, the GM Restoration Parts program has been established because of the demand of car enthusiasts to have high quality reproduction parts that are as close as possible to the factory original.
The parts that GM discontinues and no longer markets, are eligible to become licensed GM Restoration Parts. Since its inception several years ago, the GM Restoration Parts Program has taken a leadership role in serving the needs of automotive enthusiasts, restorers and collectors by licensing many thousands of restoration parts previously unavailable in the marketplace. This program does more than simply seek to license companies that will manufacture and/or market the quality parts. It is also designed to provide an optimum network of licensed companies to provide a wider variety of licensed GM parts to the restoration and enthusiast markets.
Paragon Reproductions was a pioneer in the GM Restoration Parts program, becoming one of the original licensed companies. We offer a wide range of GM licensed products including chrome bumpers, exterior mirrors and engine brackets to name a few. In addition to the large selection of GM Restoration Part’s that Paragon manufactures, we also carry a full line of GM Restoration Part’s produced by other manufacturers. Look for the GM Restoration Parts logo proudly displayed on all officially licensed products, and feel confident that you are purchasing the highest quality and most accurate parts available today.
