1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split-Window Additional Info:

The one-year only 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split-window coupe is the classic that tops most dream car wish lists. So to find a nicely detailed one that includes the numbers-matching L76 V8, four-on-the-floor, and great color combo, means this is a rare opportunity at true classic car distinction. Silver Blue is the factory-correct color, and it makes for an elegant shade worthy of a Corvette that stands out. And because this one was given a thorough restoration, the factory-correct... color has a hard shine to go with its delicate luster. The C2's artful split chrome bumpers front and rear have a mirror-like shine to coordinate well with the paintwork. Plus, all the original design elements are still there, from the bright vents in the hood to the ribbed rocker panels. It makes for a stylish total package. You even get the factory knock-off wheels. But of course, what makes these forever valuable is the genuine split rear window that only lasted one year before function took over. This solidified the '63 Sting Ray a forever in-demand coupe. The dark blue interior mixes with the light blue exterior to deliver the kind of color-coordination you'd almost expect in a classic European sports car. That's what gives this coupe added distinction beyond just the split window. This is a terrific vintage total package with bucket seats, plush carpeting, and just a hint of patina on the brightwork trim to let people know that you are keeping this significant Corvette quite traditional. Even the vertical-style AM/FM radio is still cranking out tunes. This has a great driver's machine feel with the grippy three-spoke sports steering wheel, and beyond that, the full gauge package with large speedo and tach do a terrific performance dance. And that bright shifter is just calling out to your right hand. Under the hood is the original, numbers-matching L76 V8. This had the highest compression available for the year. It was advertised with a 340 hp rating, and that's the most powerful of any carbureted Corvette in '63. So it's always going to be quite sought-after by collectors. The motor has been maintained correctly, so it fires up nicely and makes a nicely rumble out of the dual exhaust. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission gives you control of it all. And since the Sting Ray was also the debut of the fully independent sports suspension, you know you want to enjoy this classic on the open road. The right year, the right colors, and the right motor. This is the coupe we all dream about, and if you're quick enough, it can be your reality. Call now!
