LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Fuel Injection.
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.
