Tuxedo Black w/Black interior, 327/340hp, 4-spd. manual transmission.
With the introduction of the all-new ’63 Corvette, came the birth of an instant classic! No other sports car, American or otherwise had the unique and forward-thinking design of the 2nd generation Corvette. And for the first time, it was offered in two versions; the Convertible and stunning Coupe. And that split back window was as graceful as it was . . . impractical! But, man it sure was cool! Get behind the wheel and it felt like you were climbing into the cockpit of an aircraft. All business. All performance. And perform it did! The C2 was certainly new on the outside. But underneath, you got 4-wheel independent suspension for the first time along with four different engine and three transmission choices. You could even get factory air conditioning! So, you could build you new Corvette just about any way you wanted it! From cruiser to an all-out performance car that was ready for track duty! So, what was considered the ultimate ’63 Corvette? If you ask most “experts” back then, they would likely say a Split Window Coupe with the RPO L84 360hp fuel injected engine and a 4-spd. manual transmission! And that pretty much stands true today. There were only about 2600 fuelies built in ’63, making it a fairly rare option. But, if you added in the S.W.C. body and painted it Tuxedo Black, you truly ended up for one of the rarest and without a doubt most desirable Corvettes ever built! Which leads us to the car featured here . . .
This stunning example features all of the above mentioned options! Tuxedo Black exterior, Black interior, #’s matching 327/360hp F.I. engine backed up by a 4-spd. It also features early frosted wheel covers wrapped in Whitewall bias ply tires. The car has been beautifully restored and has achieved an N.C.R.S. Top Flight Award to boot!
We’re always on the hunt for outstanding examples, like this one. They’re few, far between and hard to keep in stock, once we’re able to find them! So don’t miss your opportunity to get behind the wheel of this classic and drive her home!
