This 1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe features its believed to be born with 327ci Fuel Injected V8 power plant, and 4-Speed manual Borg Warner transmission. Manufactured in October 1962, early in the Corvette C2 production cycle, it was sold new by Gene Fieldler Chevrolet in West Seattle, and remained in Washington State until the current owners purchase in 2016. Prior ownership by Mr. L. Mitson spans forty-three years, back to 1973. During this period, Mr. Mitson registered a documented 23,402 miles on the odometer, and states that the recorded mileage of 65,054 at the time of his sale is deemed to be accurate since new.
Sympathetically restored by the marque specialists at Corvette Mike in Anaheim, CA, the car currently presents in both concours show, and driven event ready condition. Since its purchase from long-term prior ownership this spectacular Fuel Injected SWC has been subject to a documented restoration with accompanying invoices exceeding $82,000. Every mechanical component has been addressed, including concours preparation of the entire chassis, suspension, underside, and engine compartment presentation. As expected, the body was showing some age related cosmetic wear to the paint, and was taken down to the gelcoat and refinished in its original Ermine White. During this photo documented process, much care was taken to prepare each step of the paint process, allowing maximum time for curing, and being mindful of original factory finish levels throughout. During reassembly, the original glass was refitted with new rubber trim and door felt, and the door and window mechanisms rebuilt for flawless operation. The interior is largely original and in stunning condition, although the faded original carpets have been replaced. Wheels have been painted to match the body, and fitted with expensive track worthy Avon CR6ZZ performance tires, giving a period racecar appearance, while enhancing the over-all driving experience.
Supplied with its original keys, a spare wheel and tire that remain unused since new, plus supporting historical and restoration documentation, this exceptional example of the iconic Split Window Fuelie is in need of nothing but a new caretaker.
