1963 Chevrolet Corvette
Car for sale by RM Auctions Inc in Auburn, Indiana 46706
The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!
The ZR-1's production run from 1990-95 was one of the most exciting times for Corvette enthusiasts in recent memory. In the mid-1980s, rumors of a "King of the Hill" Corvette began to leak out of Detroit and into America's speed shops and dealerships.
Classic Car Overview
- Immaculate restoration; detailed as-new
- NCRS Top Flight Award winner; includes judging sheets
- 360-horsepower fuel-injected engine and four-speed T-10 gearbox
- An exceptional example, ready to show and go
The Elkhart Collections split-window Sting Ray was built in St. Louis in April 1963, finished in the striking and popular Riverside Red, as denoted by its trim tag. The block with casting number 3782870 was completed in Tonawanda in April 1962, while the engine number suffix decodes to the 360 bhp engine with high-lift hydraulic camshaft and fuel injection, as presented today. Interested bidders are encouraged to thoroughly inspect said numbers for authenticity. The transmission is the correct four-speed Borg-Warner T-10 wide-ratio gearbox, built on 6 February 1963. Obviously the car was built for performance, as it has manual steering, brakes, and windows there are very few additional accessories other than what is needed to go very, very fast.
Recipient of a fresh body-off restoration, the Corvette is finished to the current NCRS judging standards, including door jambs done in a flat finish rather than being over-restored. Both the paint and brightwork are simply beautiful down to the windshield frame and the hubcaps, which are in excellent condition. The level of detail throughout extends to all the proper finishes and hardware under the hood, which have the correct and like-new appearance. The window glass is correct Libby-Owens-Ford and unmarked. A Top Flight Award winner in 2015, the Corvette continues to present in excellent condition and includes the NCRS judging sheets and blue ribbon.
Like many of the cars in this collection, this is a sterling example of its type, beautifully and correctly presented to the very highest standards.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/el20.
