It is with a heavy heart that we are letting you know that Ken Naber passed away unexpectedly last week. Ken was a long time Bloomington Gold Judge and part owner of the renowned Naber Brothers Restoration shop of Houston Tx.
The Naber Brother’s started working on Corvettes at the ripe young age of 10 and 18, back in 1957. Ken was the oldest of the two brothers but from the beginning they both took care of other people’s Corvettes. In 1963, Ken Naber bought a Gulf service station and simultaneously bought a 1963 Corvette coupe with a damaged left quarter panel, officially starting their Corvette repair business.
The business flourished from a general repair shop to one exclusively for Corvettes, servicing thousands of cars over the years. In 1986, the Naber Brother’s decided to change their focus again and focused on doing world-class Corvette restorations. Although not exclusively, that focus became especially associated with 1967’s. Some of their highlights include the Delmo Johnson 1963 Z-06 race car, the DeLorenzo 1967 L-88 race car, the yellow 1969 ZL-1, plus dozens of other award winning Corvettes.
Ken is survived by his wife Marian; his children Kimm and Michael, and his younger brother and business partner Gary.
