1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe, 340 HP
Chelsea, AL 35043
PRIVATELY OWNED: Seriously for sale, private listing. This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Hardtop Coupe, Recent Professional High End Restoration. 25 Year present Owner. High End professional and full restoration completed, replacing anything that needed replacing with the correct replacements. The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe is the “Icon” of the Corvettes. This is your opportunity to own this “Icon”. 1963 Corvette brought a brand-new style and the unique, special rear “Split Windows” Hardtop. It’s one-year run is because a Chevrolet Ivory Tower Executive (some say Zoro Arkus Dutov agreed) said “no” to the Split Windows for the 1964 forward. Why? He said it was a safety hazard trying to see out the rear window. Like any older, special collectable cars, they aren’t being made anymore. Engine choices for the 1963 Corvette was the base 327-250 HP, 327-300 HP, 327-340 HP, 327-360 Fuel Injected HP. They didn’t make many 340 HP (less than 6,000 which includes both Hardtops and Convertibles) and even fewer Fuel Injected. Like many Corvettes 1963 was about 50%/50% Coupes/Convertibles. There were many convertibles, (which also looked similar to their newer counterparts) for the next few years. But not the Split Window Coupe. It is not mistaken by Collectors, Investors and Enthusiasts. Only made for One Year, 1963. This is why it is the "Icon or Holy Grail" of Corvettes.
This car has been owned by the same owner for over 25 years. He was fully involved with the Professional California Restorer, totally restored correctly with what it needed. Documentation of the Restoration Process is available. The frame is “Powder Coated”. It is as nice underside as it is on the Exterior. This car has been on the cover and in a number of Automotive Publications as well as having photos in other publications. This would certainly be a “Top Flight” NCRS, if entered for scoring, but this owner bought and restored it to drive occasionally, not to be keep it stored or let it be a "Trailer Queen".
