327 L75 V8
This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette is a first-year Sting Ray coming off of long-term ownership. So not only does it have its numbers-matching V8 and four-on-the-floor, but you\'ll also see the overall quality of a car that has been under the same care for almost half its life.
This first-year C2 Corvette has been under the same ownership for about 26 years. It also received a makeover around the time it went to its last owner. So the factory-correct Silver Blue has the same look it did when the car was new. What this one will really impress you with its level of quality in the details. The way the headlights line up, doors close with authority, and everything Is complete (right down to the ribbed rockers,) reminds you of the difference that comes from long-term care. And since it\'s the debut year for this now-iconic dual bumper design, it just seems even nicer to have them clean and straight like they are here. This comes with a white folding soft top that looks nice against the silvery blue - almost like an ocean wave at first light. And there\'s even the color-matched hardtop, too, for when you want a coupe-like profile. You even have a third distinct look when you take the top down.
While both roof choices seem to harmonize with the exterior color, the factory-correct black interior gives a distinct and handsome contrast. Just like the exterior, the impression of the interior is a little age and a lot of care. It\'s a driver\'s environment with bucket seats, a thin/grippy sports steering wheel, and all the right gauges, including the large speedo and tach. And because this is the kind of classic you\'ll want to drive, the radio has even been upgraded to an AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette and upgraded speakers.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch L75 V8. It looks quite correct with Chevy orange on the block, matching valve covers, shiny pie dish air cleaner, and bright ignition shield. It has the tidy look of good care, and we even have a receipt for a recent tune-up. This is the debut year of the fully independent suspension Corvette, and so that makes it a great one for the road. In fact, you really do get proper control thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. There was even an investment in newer bushings to give you a confident feeling while this Corvette keep you in-tune with the road.
The sale comes complete with owner\'s manual, build receipts, service manuals, and restoration photos. This is a significant Corvette presented with well-respected quality. So if you\'re looking for true Corvette history, don\'t let this Sting Ray pass you by. Call today!!!
