RARE SPLIT WINDOW, NEW GM PERF 350 V8, 4 SPD, PWR WINDOWS, POWER BRAKES, NICE.
Here's one of the most interesting 1963 Chevrolet Corvette coupes you'll ever lay eyes on. It's a genuine one-year only, split window car with a GM Performance 350 under the hood that's so new, you still have a warranty. Arguably one of the most desirable Corvette years ever, this one is ready for a new home.
They weren't sneaking around when they painted this one Riverside Red, but when you're driving one of the most fantastic shapes of all time, why not draw a crowd? In reality, a Corvette in a correct shade of red always makes us happy because that's the iconic color, and this Sting Ray is one of the most iconic shapes in the over 60 years worth of history. Finish work is quite good, which tells you this is not one of those "lost" cars, but rather instead a coupe that was cherished by careful owners. Of course all the original design elements are still there, from the chrome vents in the hood to the ribbed rocker panels. You even get the factory knock-off hubcaps. 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.
The '63 Corvette interior was every bit a style revolution as the bodywork was. The black vinyl bucket seats look nearly new. A full array of gauges keeps a comprehensive eye on the engine, and their bright stainless faces and slender needles are miniature works of art. The four-speed shifter falls easily to hand, just inches away from the wood-rimed three-spoke steering wheel that's very European in its design. Running down the middle of the car are the original heat/defrost controls, and the large factory clock that's still ticking away. This coupe even has power windows!
When you first glance under the hood, the engine bay appears to have all the right pieces, like the chrome air cleaner, big orange block, chrome ignition cover, and the Corvette finned valve covers. But with a little time you'll start to see the upgrades. This is 350 cubic-inch V8 fresh from GM Performance. It's so new that you still have the balance of the one-year warranty beginning on 11/15. It makes a wicked roar through long tube headers and a dual exhaust. But the improvements don't end there. You can get the most out of this new motor because there was also a short-throw four-speed manual transmission with a fresh clutch and pressure plate setup installed at the same time. So now you get the best of both worlds with a great looking car that has new components to let you reliably hit the backroads whenever you want.
After you think about whats been done, you'll realize this is the perfect coupe that's not completely stock (although looks like it) and has a heartbeat as fresh as it could be. Instead, it hits a midpoint sweet spot for those who like sought-after high-end classics that can perform as good as they look. Call today!!
