The Chevrolet Corvette is unique in automotive history, no other car has ever achieved 57+ years of production or come close to the romantic reputation of this powerful 2-seat sports car.  Launched in 1953, each of the first models came in white fiberglass bodies with red interior, with a 150 horsepower six-cylinder engine and automatic transmission.  It was more of a cruising car than a racing sports car.


The first Z06 was an option package first offered with the 1963 Corvette, developed by lead engineer and racing advocate Zora Arkus-Duntov.

Corvettes ordering the Z06 package were equipped with upgrades such as a thicker front stabilizer bar, larger diameter shock absorbers and springs, dual-circuit master cylinder and vacuum brake booster designed to enhance safety and reduce braking efforts.  Upgraded brake components including sintered-metal brake linings were designed to withstand heat and wear better than conventional braking material used at that time.

J&G now offers brake drums for

1962-63 Corvette Z06 models and

shoes for the 1950s-60's Corvettes

including the Z06.  Visit our blog
