A red Corvette convertible is something we all love, so it's great to see this one is fantastically rosy inside and out. But more than just looks, this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette convertible has been given the right upgrades – from fuel-injection to four-wheel discs – so that it can be the first-year Sting Ray you've always wanted.
This car is a true iconic American. A red Sting Ray gives every one of us the fantasy of cruising a car hop for late night burgers, and then parting the midnight air with the sounds of breaking in fresh asphalt. And '63 is one of the most desirable body styles. After all, it was the first year for the C2. It carries plenty of shining brightwork on the two-piece bumpers, rocker trim, window surrounds, and faux hood louvers (a hallmark of the early C2s.) We all love the look of the correct reproduction knock-off wheels. The black roof looks crisp, so this Sting Ray even looks good with the top in place.
While we like the look of the black roof, nothing beats the style that comes from putting the top down. After all, this is a factory-correct red on red package. There's a sea of scarlet on the carpets, bucket seats, and dash. It's even color-matched on the grippy three-spoke steering wheel that is truly worthy of a vintage sports car. This a great classic feeling everywhere from the large speedo and tach, to the grasp of the stick shift. So you instantly know this is a driver's classic the moment you slip behind the wheel.
Under the hood is a true legend. It's the 327 cubic-inch V8 with the unmistakable look of a Rochester fuel injection unit on top. This was not born a fuelie, but instead upgraded about a decade ago when this car was restored. It means you can get the look and feel of a proper FI Sting Ray while saving thousands $$$$. As you look over the car, you're also going to see an upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes - something that wasn't available until later C2s. So you really get the best of everything the C2 had to offer in this desirable first-year package. Remember, you're looking at the first year the Corvette offered the fully independent sports suspension. Plus, the V8 has muscle to spare, and the four-speed manual transmission put you in complete control of the power and great dual exhaust soundtrack.
The right colors, the right upgrades, and the right price – you know you don't want to let this Sting Ray slip away. Call now!
