Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is proud to present this
award winning & NCRS registered 1963 Chevrolet Corvette
Convertible. The 63-67 (C2) Corvette was the ultimate sportscar of
the 60s. Nothing said freedom like the thundering roar of a small
block! This '63 convertible was refinished in the original color of
Daytona Blue back in 2004 as part of a restoration. Under the hood
sits a 327CID/340HP V-8 breathing through the added side exit
exhaust and looks the way you want your Corvette to look when you
tilt the hood forward, complete with orange painted block, Chevy
stamped valve covers and a big chrome air cleaner and matching
chrome distributor cover. Lots of guys learned to fear the mighty
327 in the lightweight Nova, and in the Corvette, it becomes a
scalpel compared to the 396's sledgehammer. Linked to a 4-speed
manual transmission, it is ideal for both laid-back motoring and
quick canyon carving where your right foot does all the work. Add
in bright chrome bumpers, correct badges, and shiny rocker trim,
optional color matched hard top or tan soft top and this Corvette
looks ready to hit the road immediately. The interior features
bucket seats that have been reupholstered in an original saddle tan
leather with matching carpeting, door panels, and trim. A Delco
AM/FM radio lives in the center stack, showing off its unique
vertical orientation, although the 4-speed shifter provides better
entertainment! Upgraded dual master cylinder braking, an electronic
ignition system and the Turbine-style 15 wheels utilize three-ear
knockoffs that are mounted on whitewall American Classic 205/75s. A
three-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of instrumentation that
includes a 160-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6,300-rpm
redline and auxiliary gauges that consist of oil pressure, water
temperature, battery voltage and fuel level. The five-digit
odometer shows 66k miles although the true mileage is unknown.
Stylish, vintage, upgraded, all-around fun make this iconic
Corvette a terrific treat for those who enjoy an all-around
impressive classic drop-top! This Corvette is of the highest
"driver quality" type and is ready to be enjoyed.
