For Sale at Auction: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

Of the many great Corvettes produced through eight generations since 1953, this black-on-black, 4-speed Fuelie is fine example of these legendary performers. Featuring the landmark 1963-only Split-Window body design with the color combination of Code-900 Tuxedo Black paint over black vinyl upholstery - both matching the vehicle's original Trim Tag - this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette coupe benefits from an older but well-preserved body-off restoration. It is one of just 2,610 Corvettes powered by the matching numbers top RPO L84 327ci V8 engine, developing 360hp with Rochester Ramjet fuel injection and sold new at a $430 option cost, mated to a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission. Additional features include a signal-seeking Delco AM radio and dash-mounted clock. Integrity is maintained with the Sting Ray's correct Rochester Ramjet FI unit, and mostly original interior. The Split-Window Sting Ray coupe would be a one-year-only body design for 1963, and today it stands as one of the finest designs from the legendary Bill Mitchell-led GM styling studios. Heavily influenced by Mitchell's 1960 SCCA championship-winning Sting Ray race car, the new-for-1963 Corvette Sting Ray was the product of the top designers and engineers of the era at GM, including its new independent rear suspension developed by Zora Arkus-Duntov. Groomed to production reality by Larry Shinoda, the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray was rooted in the XP-75 "Q-Corvette" concept and early sketches penned in 1957 by a young Peter Brock.
