For Sale: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

The pro-touring movement, keenly summarized as mixing wicked performance with classic good looks, began gaining popularity about 30 years ago. And today, with technology that continuously blurs the lines between street beast and track king, transforming a storied classic into a technological tour de force has become one of America's favorite pastimes. A super slick showstopper that was built by Corvette artist Jeff Hayes, this awesome Sting Ray combines picture-perfect aesthetics with serious mechanical prowess. And whether you're looking for invigorating performance, a lust worthy parade queen or just a cool car to own and enjoy, it's a great candidate for your next classic!


When it comes to appeal, modern society operates on a myriad of unspoken rules that ultimately determine the winners and the losers. On the surface, judgements might seem shallow or fickle. But a deeper look reveals a pattern or, 'algorithm' if you will, that highlights the value of basic attributes. Take the iPhone, for example: it's relatable, it's charmingly attractive and it's incredibly engaging. Or Facebook, a service that's easy to use, visually appealing and highly addictive. That 'just right' mindset feels like the perfect way to describe this Corvette's killer appearance. Simply put: the car is a winner. It's handsome without being too traditional. It's fresh without being too outlandish. And it manages to be unique while mastering the art of mass appeal.

The car's solid body, authentic 1963 Corvette fiberglass that was massaged to near perfection by Corvette aficionado Jeff Hayes, looks simply stunning in glossy Platinum Metallic two-stage. At the front of that rich pigment, spotless 'razor blade' bumpers bend around a tasteful stainless grille, which floats between bright amber parking lamps. Behind that grille, a crisp header emblem leads a 1963-exclusive hood, which fronts a tinted greenhouse that's trimmed with polished frames and capped wipers. That glass gets reflected in a classy bowtie mirror, which perfectly complements Satin Black rockers, traditional door handles and throaty side-pipes. And at the back of the car, two more spotless bumpers reflect sporty taillights, a crisp Sting Ray emblem and an ornate fuel filler.


Levitate this coupe's electric bonnet and you'll find 6.2 liters of divine GM small block. Officially known as the Chevrolet Performance LS376/480, that trusty engine twists a respectable 495 horsepower into 473 lb./ft. of pavement-slaying torque! At the top of the block, a satin-finished air box slinks breeze through a proven GM throttle body. Smooth TSP Velocity fuel injection lines a fabricated Velocity intake and rectangular-port L92-style heads. Factory coils fire hot Taylor plug wires. A nodular crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons provide stout 10.7 to 1 compression. A hydraulic roller cam maximizes intake efficiency. Speaking of breathing, that smooth valvetrain funnels spent gases through short stainless headers. There's a beefy aluminum radiator that's slid between a dressed support and a chrome puller fan. A polished Eddie Motorsports serpentine drive spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. And, as you likely deduced from our high-resolution photos, the fresh mill rolls in a satin Platinum Metallic frame that's finished with niceties like trick dipsticks, a familiar Wilwood master cylinder and classy Corvette coil covers.


Park this Sting Ray on a lift and you'll find a full Coffman Corvette chassis that mixes a spry fifth-generation Corvette front suspension with a steady sixth-generation Corvette rear suspension. At the middle of those professionally assembled bones, a smooth automatic transmission deals power to a spry Dana 44 differential that, like the aforementioned rear-clip, was borrowed from a sixth-generation Corvette. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Smooth and solid stops are provided by sixth-generation Corvette Z06 brakes, which squeeze 4 and 6-piston calipers around a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. And torque meets the pavement through seventh-generation Corvette Z06-style blades, which twist chromed spinners inside 235/40R18 Toyo Proxes 4 Plus redlines and 275/35R19 Toyo Proxes 4 Plus redlines.


Swivel this classic's doors and you'll find a tastefully upgraded cockpit that combines timeless second-generation Corvette style with premium touchpoints and modern technology. French-stitched buckets wrap tight leather around big bolsters and modern frames. A leather-trimmed dash centers classy AutoMeter American Muscle telemetry between modern audio and modern air conditioning. A slender console founds a short Lokar shifter in authentic looking carbon fiber. Custom side panels front smooth power windows above clean Daytona Carpet. The driver spins a snazzy Billet Specialties Boost wheel around billet foot pedals and a polished and tilting column. And all that swagger looks great bathed in crisp LED accent lighting!

The goal of this Corvette's build was simple: create a world-class pro-tourer that's the best at everything. The result is a car that, in addition to offering an unforgettable driving experience, wraps timeless, all-American style around effortless athleticism and exceptional detail.
