Classic Car Overview

The legendary 1963 Corvette Split-Window coupe is one of those rare exceptions to the rule that if the top goes down, the price goes up. There arent many guys with a pulse who arent secretly wishing for a split window coupe in the Christmas stocking this year, and this gorgeous Riverside Red coupe is just the thing to make even a grown man dance in the streets on Christmas morning. Featuring a numbers-matching 327/250HP V8, a rare automatic transmission, and a frame-off restoration that attended to every single nut-and-bolt on this C2, this is an incredibly special, blue-chip classic. Yeah, the Sting Ray is an absolute slam-dunk, 50 years of Corvette fans have pretty much proven that. Imagine youre walking down the street in late 1962, and this thing is idling at a red light, twin pipes burbling, and that astounding shape making you stop in your tracks and just stare until it disappears over the horizon. Thats what the split-window coupe is all about. And if you have one, you need to do it right, because theres just too much history here to do half-hearted. Code 941 Sebring Silver was this Vettes factory color, but this beauty was faithfully changed to Code 923 Riverside Red an upgrade in anyones book. Seriously, who doesnt love a Lil Red Corvette. The paint change went on a few years back and it still looks great today, with no remnants of the original color anywhere to be found. In fact, the finish look fantastic from every angle, with only very minor imperfections to speak of here and there, but certainly nothing that would get in the way of showing this Splittie off with great pride. The fiberglass is in top-notch condition with crisp details, sharp lines, and no signs of body stress in the usual locations. All the chrome was shined up at the time of the restoration, the stainless was polished too, and the result is a high-quality piece thats ready to be drive and enjoyed without worry. And thats a good thing, because if I had a Split-Window Corvette, Id want the whole world to see me driving it. Out back, the Sting Ray badge debuted, ushering in a new era of American motoring that made these cars legends. And yes, thats Sting Ray with a space, they werent called Stingrays until 1969 through 1976. The 63 Corvette interior was every bit as ground-breaking as the bodywork, although it tends to get a bit lost in the commotion. Handsome black seat covers have been fitted to the original buckets, and the twin-cockpit design is something thats still echoing in todays C7. A full array of crisp gauges keep a comprehensive eye on the engine, and their bright stainless faces and slender needles are miniature works of art. Although that 8-ball topped shifter might look like it manages a 4-speed, it actually controls a rather rare, Powerglide automatic below. Just inches away is whats likely the original 3-spoke steering wheel thats very familiar in its design, with a large-diameter rim that works perfectly with the power steering system under the hood. A vertical Delco AM/FM/Cassette radio is a welcome addition and looks cool with its inverted orientation, although it will need service before it pumps tunes into the cabin again. Simple and stylistic, the black interior is exactly what belongs in a red Corvette, and the very nice set-up inside this cabin is a perfect complement for this bright red Splittie. Power comes from the original, numbers-matching SC-code 327/250 horsepower 4-barrel carbureted engine, which was the most common engine found in the 1963 Corvette. Chevrolet Orange engine enamel on the block and matching valve covers looks 100% stock, further complemented by the original dual-snorkel, chrome-topped air cleaner that gives the engine bay its authentic look. The rams horn exhaust manifolds are in great order, and they feed into a mellow yet throaty off-road dual exhaust system that gives the potent small block a nice bark. The rear end offers highway-friendly gears and the C2 all-independent suspension definitely lives up to the billing of improved handling and a great ride, further improved by the power brake and power steering systems that make this Splittie a joy to drive. The car carries knock-off wheels, and while experts will note that they were not available from the factory in 1963, you cant argue with how right they look (they practically defined the GM mid-year era), especially wrapped in 205/75/15 whitewall radials. Hard-to-find, numbers matching, and exceptionally pretty, dont let this blue-chip investment split-window Corvette become the ghost of Christmas Past. Call today!
