Legendary Motorcar is very proud to offer for sale this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Coupe.
The newly designed ‘63 Corvette was flashy, muscular and powerful as this futuristic fiberglass sports car was a symbol of post-WWII America that was craving for individual expression. The radical exterior styling of this Corvette generation was very purposeful, with peaked fenders, a long nose, and a short, bobbed tail. The Quad headlamps were now hidden - the first American car so equipped since the 1942 DeSoto and the 1936-37 Cords. The hood had two simulated air intakes within stylish indentations and the Coupe doors were cut into the roof like a true racing sports car. The Sting Ray's interior carried a new interpretation of the twin-cowl Corvette dash motif used since 1958. A full set of round gauges included a huge speedometer and tachometer, and the center stack was now somewhat slimmer containing the clock and a vertically situated radio. The first-ever production Corvette Coupe had the backbone divided rear window split which was an extremely unusual styling element for its time period. This ‘Split Window” with the glass flowing down the sides and body sweeping artistically into the point at the back of the car adorned by the large round deck fuel-filler flap with the crossed-flags insignia. All 1963 cars had 327cid engines, which made 250HP as standard and optional variants made were 300HP, 340HP and 360HP.
This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window was built in the St. Louis, Missouri Assembly Plant and rolled off the line on Thursday, April 25, 1963. It wears the extremely striking Tuxedo Black exterior very nicely complemented by a Saddle Vinyl interior. Power is created by its numbers matching 327/340HP engine and sent to the rear wheels via the 4-speed manual transmission. The Corvette has benefitted from an extensive frame on restoration that included rebuilding the engine, rebuilding the transmission, a fully detailed undercarriage and much more. The wet and sanded and polished paint shines and shows beautifully, while the interior is in excellent condition. All chrome has been restored and shines beautifully.
This is one of the most desirable mid year Corvettes there is. This ’63 Split Window has its numbers matching 340 Horse engine, increasing the rarity and desirability coupled with the quality restoration make it a truly great addition to any collection.
