A genuine 1963 Chevrolet Corvette coupe always gets enthusiasts excited. After all, it's a one-year only, split window car. And so when you can find one that has been restored in the right places (like the shining silver paint) while staying original in the best places (like the desirable numbers-matching L75 motor,) then you know you're looking at a true rare gem up for grabs.
A first-year C2 Corvette is a car that always gets people talking. That's why we love to see this icon so complete. All the original design elements are still there, from the chrome vents in the hood to the ribbed rocker panels. And the chrome bumpers are proper shining art. But, of course, what makes these forever valuable is the genuine split rear window that only lasted one year before function took over for this stylish touch. What really has us hooked is the factory-correct code-941 Sebring Silver color. It not only has a great name directly linking this to the Corvette's racing history, but also it seems a bit distinct over the more popular colors of the year like red and blue. The coupe was given a respray a few years ago. The result is that ideal situation where it has a shining silvery clearcoat glow. So you'll love taking it out for a sunny day cruise and showing it off at the events.
The dark blue interior has that ideal performance look. It's similar to black but with a little added distinction. And against the exterior silver, it has an almost European level of color coordination. This the factory-correct color, and just like the exterior, there has been the right care to make sure this remains a Sting Ray of distinction. As you look over the interior, you'll discover some subtle upgrades, like the retro-style AM/FM stereo that now features Bluetooth and the glossy wood-rimmed three-spoke sports steering wheel (the original also comes with the sale.) But what you'll really love is how this one delivers the ideal classic car experience. That's why you have the driver-oriented feeling of bucket seats, full gauge package, and a gearshift that just feels like it's in perfect position for your right hand.
Under the hood is the original, numbers-matching L75 V8. This is an optional upgrade, and today it still breathes through a correct Carter four-barrel carburetor. So this authentic first-year Sting Ray is still a correct powerhouse with its advertised 300 hp rating. And since you'll want to show this V8 off, it has the bright block, matching valve covers w/callouts, bright distributor shield, and pie dish air cleaner. The dual exhaust still makes that perfect snarl as you row through the four forward gears. So while this is a great one to talk about, it's even more fun to drive. After all, don't forget this debuted the Corvette's new fully independent suspension. Plus, you have power steering and the optional Positraction rear end.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and a proper car cover. You already know a numbers-matching L75 split-window Sting Ray will always be coveted, so this is true dream car. Call today!!!
