Car history:
Posted 05/11/2017
This 1963 Split-Window FUELIE Corvette in a very desirable color combination
of Daytona blue with vinyl saddle tan interior was the lucky recipient of a full
ground-up restoration some years ago and has been enjoyed sparingly since.
Numbers show that this is one of approximately 1,200 Split-Window Corvette
Coupes that left the factory with the rare 360hp Fuel injected engine option in
1963. This particular car has an NCRS certificate showing it was originally
delivered from the factory to Don Steves Chevrolet in La Habra California.

Over the past year the owner has replaced common service components found
to be incorrect date coded with ones that now display the proper dates. Items
like the Alternator, radiator, brake master, starter, regulator and oil filter canister,
have all been replaced with correct date coded units for a June of 1963 production car.

In addition to correcting some minor deficiencies the motor and Muncie transmission
were professionally rebuilt. The original block was unfortunately damaged
beyond repair but has been retained if the new owner would like it as part of
the sale. The replacement block, essentially identical to the original block in
every way has all the correct castings #s (3782870) and date codes for a June
8th 1963 production 327 fuelie and has the proper broach marks and re-stamped
matching numbers as found on the original block. We felt it was important to
be completely honest and disclose that the motor has been replaced. It is however
both internally and externally identical to the original block.

Everything on the car works as it was designed with the exception of the radio
and clock which need rebuilding. It starts easily, shift smoothly and tracks well
going down the road. The brakes, suspension and steering all feel good. The
level of restoration includes such details as factory hand markings on the side
of the frame and other locations as were seen originally when the car was new.
The paint shows a few age blemishes under close scrutiny but is overall still
exceptionally nice in appearance.

The interior also appears to be in good condition and supports the fact that the
car has been well stored since the restoration was completed sometime in the

The Kelsey Hayes Alloy Wheels with 3-eared Knock-offs are original, period
correct for 1963 and in excellent condition.

This car is well sorted and ready for immediate use.

Records of the two previous owners dating back to 1999 will be provided to the buyer.
