This 1963 Corvette Split Window was created by the Roadster Shop of Mundelein, Illinois and was featured at the SEMA Auto Show in 2017. It took over two and a half years to complete and is one of the most amazing cars to be created by the Roadster Shop to date.
It started with an all original 1963 Corvette Split Window automobile and was moulded into the raging beast it is today. The detail on this car is amazing and most of the parts and pieces were custom CNC’d in house by the Roadster Shop.
