Local car much of its life and was supposedly sold new in Aurora Missouri.
Clear Missouri Title In Hand
This 1963 Corvette is a very good overall presentable car. New repaint in base
coat clear coat in 2016. The paint was overall done well with the exception of
the door jamb areas where they could have spent a little more time on. The
doors line up well and have the original glass in them. The car does run down
the road good and the engine is strong and does not need rebuilding. It appears
to have been done at sometime and still has many correct components such as
intake, oil pan, harmonic balancer, and even the original valve covers with no
seams. The carburetor was replaced with an Edelbrock one with an electric choke
and does have a set of headers on the engine. The exhaust has been replaced.
The engine appears to be the original one and not a typical restamp as most
are these days. I have been around these cars for sometime and the way the
engine pad stamp looks is excellent! The broach marks are just distinct enough
as they should be. That is one of the main reasons that attracted me to this car.
The car has only the hardtop and no softop. The hardtop is complete and was
repainted with the car but was not completely disassembled when done. The
windshield has been replaced at one time. The interior has also been redone
several years ago. It does present itself good but not perfect. We did install a
new set of Al Knock door panels just this past week. It does have the correct
seats, instruments, clock, and shifter, but the console and glovebox door is from
a 1964 and later model. Aftermarket radio that does fit vertically in the same
slot. Seatbelts are replacements. Those items can be found and put back in if
desired. The gauges all are original and not restored and most all work except
the odometer and clock. The actual instrument cluster housing, itself is good
with no pitting around the edges. Tachometer and speedometer do work. The
dash pads are also original ones and have had a few repairs done over the years
and are good driver quality. The headlights do operate and have had rebuilt
motors recently. The hood appears also to be an original one and this car being
a mid production one still has the hood blocks like it should. With the exception
of the added fender flares the car looks original. Those fender flares have been
done along time ago, probably back in the late 70's or early 80's and I will have
to say there are no cracks or places coming up in them. They were done well
for back in the day and have held up. The taillights are stock and have not been
altered with the bumpers still intact and the front parking lights are still there
and have not been shaved off or the headlights glassed in as many were done.
You could put the fenders back stock if desired down the road. The front bumpers
and brackets are missing.
The chassis on the car and engine compartment are not all that bad. You can
clearly see the original fiberglass floors as those are in real good shape. No one
has ever patched them up or undercoated the underside of the car. The frame
is excellent. Not even any real pitting and is fairly nice and smooth. The shocks
and fuel tank have been replaced. Also the car has added front disc brakes.
The wheels and tires on the car are new and they are American Racing Torque
Thrust size 15x8 and tires are BF/Goodrich Radial T/As P255 60/R15.
Most things work on the car but I do know the wipers, clock, emergency brake
and radio are not working. I have not had the time to troubleshoot those things.
I also can give you the two previous owners name and numbers on the car and
I also have copies of those titles.
The Corvette is a nice presentable car that you would not be ashamed of. You
can simply leave it like it is or change a few things to increase its value as it
does have the correct engine and the very sought after and desirable 340 h.p. engine.
