Rare 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split window fuelie. This incredible split window Stingray has undergone an extensive frame off restoration and was upgraded in the process with some very tasteful upgrades.
The Corvette body was removed from the frame and sanded down to the gel-coat. The body had great fitment, the bonding strips were all intact and there was no evidence of any accidents. The original color was Sebring Silver but it is not a vibrant shade of silver, so the decision was made to professionally paint the car in House of Kolor’s Orion High Impact silver which makes the car look amazing. It reminds us of a futuristic spaceship that is ready for blast off. The previous owner wanted the rumble of side exhaust, so the decision was made to change the rear valance and upgrade the car with side exhaust.
A freshly painted rear valance with exhaust cutouts and side trim come with the car if you prefer factory rear exhaust. Under the hood looks factory original with a correct 327/360hp rebuilt, replacement block, topped off with a fuel injection setup and less than 500 break in miles. According the NCRS standards, this replacement block could be re-stamped to match the original vin # if the next owner choses to.
The Borg Warner 4-speed was upgraded to a more durable Muncie 4-Speed transmission with a Hurst shifter for better shifting with less synchro noise. The black bucket seat interior is a very nice mix of new and very well preserved original. The dash cluster, gauges, clock and radio were professional refurbished and refaced by CGR Restoration in South Carolina, they look factory correct and new with the correct 6500 redline tach.
This stunning silver Corvette is set off by brand new chrome turbine style US Mag with performance radials and looks amazing. We have the original 1963 steel wheels, Michelin white walls and and wheel covers that can be exchanged if you prefer the stock look and want to save the cost of the Ramblers.
