Car history:
Crevier Classic Cars is pleased to offer this 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe, a true American Icon. Few Corvettes have achieved such notoriety as the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray, which launched the second generation of America s Sports Car with a sexy aerodynamic design by Bill Mitchell and Larry Shinoda, riding a thoroughly redesigned chassis with Corvette s first four-wheel independent suspension, developed by Zora Arkus Duntov. Also new was the first-ever production Corvette Coupe, immediately recognized by its split rear window. While the basic design of the coupe would last until 1967, the split-window would not, and it is the signature identifying feature of closed 1963 Corvettes today. The all-new Corvette generated immediate acclaim, with Motor Trend testers remarking, We thought the old model cornered darn well, but there s no comparing it to this new one. Road & Track stated that the 1963 Corvette will know few peers. The model has become something of a design classic, renowned for its combination of European-inspired high style and American brawn, and it remains coveted by Corvette collectors as a landmark in the history of what may be Chevrolet s most important model. This year, the model celebrates its 50th anniversary. Of the four 327 V-8 engines available, the top carbureted mill was the 340-horsepower L76 with solid lifters, propelling the Corvette to 60 mph in under six seconds performance that remains exhilarating, even today. Naturally, that engine is what can be found under the hood of the car we are offering here. Finished in Daytona Blue with a blue interior, exactly as it was built in March 1963, as can be verified by the correct trim tag. The car was the recipient of an older complete professional restoration and has been carefully maintained since showing light signs of use and wear. With the exception of some chips that have been touched up on its nose, the paint shows extremely well. With less than 505 miles since a thorough rebuild on the motor and recently gone through mechanically to ensure that it remains an excellent driving example. The car is equipped with the signal seeking AM radio, clock, heater, L76 327/340hp solid lifter V8, as well as the four-speed manual transmission, 3.70 positraction rear axle, and four knock-off aluminum wheels. Thanks to its thorough restoration, it is clean, tidy, and in very correct condition, showing 77,779 miles. The car is complete with its original owner s manual and sales brochure, its knock-off hammer and shop manual. It is a numbers matching example. The 1963 Corvette is a car that every enthusiast of American performance cars needs to own. Fifty years after the Sting Ray first began to appear at the stoplights of America, this would be a wonderful time to fill that gap in one s collection, and this example numbers-matching, well presented, well-optioned, and packing a punch, would be a wonderful way to do it. Nothing says happy anniversary like the growl of V-8 power. 77,779 miles from the odometer. Color codes from the trim plate. Motor pad says T0312RE. $94,900. January 18, 2014.
