1963 Chevrolet Corvette

2Dr Coupe

Please Inquire

A true Corvette Sting Ray Split Window! This 2nd generation of Chevrolet’s most famous sports car is equipped with a 340 HP NOM V-8 and 4-speed manual transmission.

Notable exterior features besides the split window fastback design include: doors cut into the roof for ease of entry/exit and hideaway quad headlamps incorporated into the front end so as not to disrupt the sharp leading edge. Simulated air intakes were included on both the hood and rear pillars, though the hood units would be a 1963 model year exclusive. Even the large emblem on the rear decklid was functional and served as a hinged cover for the fuel filler neck. The unmistakable design of the C2 originated from some of GM’s most brilliant engineers. and was the near perfect cross of both artistic interpretation and aerodynamic design. Both the convertible and coupe body styles were subjected to wind tunnel testing – a first for the Corvette. Thinner fiberglass outer panels were implemented over the previous generation, but these helped offset the weight of the additional steel support in the central chassis. The steel structure helped reinforce the vehicle and surprisingly didn’t hamper passenger room in the interior.

Corvette passengers were greeted by a new interpretation of the familiar twin-cowl cockpit design that was divided by a center console housing both a clock and vertically-oriented radio. A large speedometer and tachometer gauge, as well as improved luggage space were also and the inclusion of a glove box improved convenience. Less visible features, but equally convenient were a cowl-ventilation system and improved heater.

Mechanically there were several changes: an improved recirculating ball steering system helped with maneuverability, while wider drum brakes were fitted as standard and helped bring the car to a stop. Power assist braking was also an option at the time and is present on this vehicle. C2 Corvettes also benefited from an aluminum clutch housing, efficient alternator, positive crankcase ventilation and a smaller flywheel. Underneath this Sting Ray is open rear end, independent rear suspension and A-arms with coil springs in the front. Several different 327 V-8 options were available along with the choice of a standard 3-speed manual, optional 4-speed manual or 2-speed automatic transmission.
