1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split-Window

A genuine 1963 Chevrolet Corvette coupe always gets enthusiasts excited. After all, it's a one-year only, split window car. And so when you can find one that has been restored in the right places (like the refreshed original color) while staying original in the best places (like the ultra-desirable numbers-matching L76 motor,) then you know you're looking at a true rare gem up for grabs. A first-year C2 Corvette is a car that always gets people talking. That's... why we love to see this icon so complete. All the original design elements are still there, from the chrome vents in the hood to the ribbed rocker panels. The chrome bumpers are proper shining art. You even get true 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 for this stylish touch. What really has us hooked is the factory-correct code 941 Sebring Silver color. It not only has a great name directly linking this to the Corvette's racing history, but also it seems a bit distinct over the more popular colors of the year like red and blue. The coupe was given a respray a few years ago. The result is that ideal situation where it has a shining silvery clear coat glow in the sunlight, but nothing about it makes you nervous to take this one out on the road and enjoy it properly. In fact, when we get into the mechanical details in a moment, you'll see this truly a great one for driving. The dark blue interior has that ideal performance look similar to black but with a little added distinction. Against the exterior silver, it has an almost European level of color coordination. Not only is this the factory-correct color, but much of it is believed to be original. This one has such a high degree of originality that the AM radio is still cranking out tunes. Even the clock works â€" it's just currently unplugged so it doesn't drain the battery. Plus, some of these factory amenities make it a nice place to spend some time thanks to power windows and power steering. But what you'll love the most is the ideal classic car experience this can deliver. That's why you have bucket seats, a grippy three-spoke steering wheel, and a gearshift that just feels like it's in perfect position for your right hand. Under the hood is the original, numbers-matching L76 V8. This had the highest compression available for the year and it was advertised 340 hp rating â€" the highest of any carbureted Corvette in '63. So it's always going to be quite sought-after by collectors. The owner had the motor and the numbers-matching Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission professionally rebuilt as well having the dash wiring and dual exhaust replaced. And so the way this valuable engine fires up makes it the ideal balance of collector's machine and driver's car. Plus, 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 sale comes complete with the right paperwork, including the owner's manual, maintenance records, service manuals, and build receipts. You already know a numbers-matching L76 split-window Sting Ray will always be coveted, so this is true dream car. Call now!
