SOLD --- One of the most unique Corvette's made. This Split window coupe is in fabulous condition and drives AMAZING. These split windows were only made in 1963 and are hard to find in a good condition like this.

Exterior:

The Corvette coupe is known for its amazing rear view with this one being in this magnificent silver paint. The paint is in very good condition, and so is the Chrome. This car in particular differentiates itself from other coupe's as it was the only year the model was made with 2 windows in the back.  

Interior:

The black, leather interior is in new condition, and do not show any signs of rips, tears or stains. Also the carpets look perfect. 

Mechanics:

This Corvette is a really good driver, that is powered by a 327cu V8 that produced an astonishing 340 horsepower. It comes with power windows (which is rare), power brakes, and the front lights turn upwards mechanically (see video).

History:

The 1963 Corvette Sting Ray not only had a new design, but also newfound handling prowess. The Sting Ray was also a somewhat lighter Corvette, so acceleration improved despite unchanged horsepower. For the 1963 model year, 21,513 units would be built, which was up 50 percent from the record-setting 1962 version. Production was divided almost evenly between the convertible and the new coupe - 10,919 and 10,594, respectively - and more than half the convertibles were ordered with the optional lift-off hardtop. Nevertheless, the coupe wouldn't sell as well again throughout the Sting Ray years. The closed Corvette did not outsell the open one until 1969, by which time the coupe came with a T-top featuring removable roof panels.[16] Equipment installations for 1963 began reflecting the market's demand for more civility in sporting cars. The power brake option went into 15 percent of production, power steering into 12 percent. On the other hand, only 278 buyers specified the $421.80 air conditioning; leather upholstery - a mere $80.70 - was ordered on only 1,114 cars. The cast aluminum knock-off wheels, manufactured for Chevy by Kelsey-Hayes, cost $322.80 a set, but few buyers checked off that option. However, almost 18,000 Sting Rays left St. Louis with the four-speed manual gearbox - better than four out of every five.
