For Sale: 1963 Chevrolet Corvette in Burlington, Washington

Vehicle Description

1963 Corvette Coupe Split Window DGC8499 VIN 30837S108499 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray coupe is in "excellent" condition, and has been used "strictly for car shows and good-weather pleasure drives." Under the hood is a "L75"-code 300-horsepower 327-cu.in. V-8 engine. Powerglide automatic transmission. Factory-style knockoff wheels. Manual steering and power-assisted drum brakes. Little explanation is needed for the classic 1963 Corvette Sting Ray and the dramatic styling of the iconic split-window coupe. It's rolling sculpture. The example offered here is in Ermine White over red. According to the last owner it is said to have been purchased in its current condition and is believed to be largely original, down to the 36,400 miles on the odometer. The details of previous restoration work are unknown. The previous owner describes this is believed to be original, although a rebuild history is unknown. Carter aluminum four-barrel carburetor, the engine is said to "start easily with a few pumps of the gas pedal," with no smoke and no leaks, according to the previous owner. Its complementing two-speed automatic is also reported to "shift perfectly." The cooling system has been upgraded to include a thicker aluminum radiator and an electric fan. This Sting Ray's Ermine White paintwork matches the "936" code on the interior-mounted trim tag. The history of the paintwork is unknown, but the previous owner notes its condition as "95 percent," with no blemishes and no reported swirl marks. The exterior trim and chrome, including the 1963-only aluminum simulated hood grilles, appear to be in very good condition, with no pitting in the chrome bumpers. The body lines and panel gaps also appear to be in very good shape. Dressed in red, this Corvette's cockpit casts a striking contrast to the white exterior. The previous owner reports the cabin is in "excellent" condition, with some age-related wear evident in the seat covers, but no holes or rips. Additionally, the carpet and headliner are said to be in "excellent" condition, while the gauges are reported as functional. The same goes for the radio, which is a later cassette unit from Custom Autosound. There is some visible wear in some of the interior trim, along with a small crack visible in the wood-rimmed steering wheel, but the overall presentation of the interior seems very good. The previous owner asserts the suspension and chassis components are in good condition, with no known issues or needs, and have been maintained to stock specifications. No known rust in the chassis, either. Equipment includes manual steering and power-assisted drum brakes, both of which are said to work well. The car rolls on "like-new" radial tires mounted on factory-style knockoff wheels. The tires are said to be in "excellent" condition and show virtually all of their remaining tread, while the wheels are said to be in "very good" condition. This is an early Corvette as it has under seat storage for both seats. We have been very impressed with the overall condition. It looks almost new on the underside. Excellent Corvette.
