The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette coupe is the car of dreams. It is the one to truly earn its Sting Ray name as a genuine one-year only, split-window car. So when one of these rare classics with perpetual desirability is available, you need to act fast.
They weren\'t sneaking around when they painted this one Riverside Red, but when you\'re driving one of the most fantastic shapes of all time, why not draw a crowd? In reality, a Corvette in a correct shade of red always makes us happy because that\'s the iconic color, and this Sting Ray is one of the most iconic shapes in the Corvette\'s nearly 70-year history. The restoration may have changed this coupe to a slick red, but they also made sure to keep a careful eye on making sure such a significant coupe still appeared stock. It has all the right details, like the chrome vents in the hood, ribbed rocker panels, and an overall quality fit to the body panels. Plus, the bumpers appear brand new and shine like mirrors. 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.
The \'63 Corvette interior was every bit a style revolution as the bodywork was, and so it\'s great to have it in a red just as bold as the exterior. Plush carpeting, a smooth dash, clean bucket seats, and an excellent headliner really give this a quality feel. A full array of gauges keeps a comprehensive eye on the engine, and their bright stainless faces and slender needles are miniature works of art. The four-speed Hurst shifter falls easily to hand, just inches away from the three-spoke sports steering wheel. The center stack running in-between the twin cowls of the dash has a slender design, so it\'s nice to see the correct-style Delco AM/FM radio still cranking out the tunes. And Corvette fans will notice that this has air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) It\'s believed to be a factory feature, which would make this one of only 278 - one of the rarest features of this special year!
Under the hood is a very stock and correct presentation of an era-correct block. And while you\'ll admire the tidiness of the full engine bay, right down to the belt and hoses, it also shows the right signs of proper maintenance. So the 327 cubic-inch V8 fires up eagerly and runs strong. You get to make the most out of it all thanks to the control of the four-speed manual transmission. The car\'s level of care and restoration is also seen in the undercarriage photos. It has the clean look of a car that you can confidently take on the road. So it\'s perfect for both enjoying at shows and enjoying the drive home. After all, the \'63 Corvette coupe not only has the distinctive split window, but it was also the first one to have a fully independent sports suspension.
This is one of the most sought-after coupes of all time, and this one has the shine and rarity to be a true star. So if you\'re ready to join the upper class of Corvette society, give us a call today!
