1963 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster
1963 was the first year of the second generation (C2) Corvette. With its Sting Ray like styling with hidden headlights, vented coves in the front quarter panel and split chromed bumpers on front and rear, it was quite a departure from the 1950's "Vettes or old.
For consignment a 1963 Corvette Roadster Convertible. This car presents in nice condition with a few faults in the fiberglass, and a previous repair on the back. Bathed in red, and a black convertible, we give you this classic Stingray, with a fuel injected engine.
Duntov was in his radical mode when he designed this car. Sleek lines, thin pointed body panels, and split bumpers lead the way for this beautiful automobile. Hidden headlights and louvers in the hood are cues that this is a 1963 version. In the front quarter is the Corvette cove but stylized to be dual rectangular openings. Wheel wells are flat on the top and their protrusions continue through the car at the mid line with a V crease that runs to the back of the car, creating the pointed rear. A stainless steel side rocker panel is on in lieu of any side pipes, and in back the thin V shaped design houses dual round tail lights framed below with another pair of split bumpers. On top is a very clean and tear free canvas convertible in black. 15-inch chrome Cragar wheels are wrapped in good condition rubber. Noted is a crack in the body at the passenger headlight are stress fractures, and on back a previous repair is revealing itself.
As with these gen 2 models, the dash is now a dual arch version with a center "post" that runs to the hump in the floor. Within this post is a vertical mounted radio, a few knobs and pulls, and a large clock. On the passenger's side is the glovebox, and on the driver's side is the cluster of round instrumentation. A wood rimmed steering wheel is topping the original column. In the center of the hump is the Hurst shifter and an electronic box to control the fuel injection. Seats present nicely in black bomber style. Black tuck and roll and some smooth vinyl is also on the door panels, and black carpeting floods the floors.
Under the hood is a 327ci V8 which has been re-stamped and is not original to this car. It now has Edelbrock electronic fuel injection. On the back is a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission with a 3.70 rear axle. Consigner states he will also include a Rochester Fuel Injection assembly and distributor from the engine, which has been upgraded to the Edelbrock.
All nice and clean with no rust showing under this car. Independent front suspension with coil springs is on the front and full independent rear suspension is showing nicely with no rust. Disc brakes are on all 4 corners.
A quick starter and smooth idle. Pressing the accelerator has this car come to life and on the test track it showed us nice acceleration, good handling and smooth shifting with an easy clutch. The oil gauge was reading low, and consigner states a new oil pump was just put in, so it must be the gauge. Also, the battery gauge was not working at the time of my drive. The odometer and trip odometer are non functional. Lastly, the center of the steering column was loose
A fair condition car with a replacement fuel injected engine, not original to this car, but the engine has an original Rochester fuel injection unit that will come with it. A nice driver, and fun to put the top down and just cruise!!
