Car description

This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette convertible is a first year Sting Ray with a numbers-matching, fuel-injected V8. So yes, you're looking at the ultimate collectable Vette...and its red.Before we get into all of the hardware that will make you drool over this Chevrolet, take a moment to appreciate the concours-worthy body. The factory-correct Riverside Red might have been named after a racetrack, but the over $10K invested in new paintwork will have your eyes thinking this shade is about how light cascades over the amazing body. In fact, the laser-straight panels are a telltale sign that this car was professionally restored, because the factory never got the fiberglass this nice. Your heart rate will continue to increase as you realize that all the hard to get chrome and stainless trim is present, and pristine.Open the door, and it feels like 1963 all over again. There's a sea of red on the carpets, vinyl bucket seats, and dash. Just about the only thing that breaks up this festival of scarlet is the brand new white folding roof. The rest of the interior is factory-correct from the AM/FM radio to the heat/defrost controls... even the clock is still ticking away. Sitting in the driver's seat is an experience with the grippy three-spoke steering wheel that is truly worthy of a vintage sports car. Beyond that is a full set of gauges, including the 6,500 rpm redline tach an indication of something special under the hood. While this is a stellar Sting Ray, what makes this the star of every car show is its engine bay. Every Corvette had a 327 cubic-inch V8 in 1963, but they were far from being equal. Few people were willing to pay for the pricy L84 option that added Rochester fuel injection, which makes this 360 hp Sting Ray a rare member of Corvette royalty. But what makes this motor irresistible is that it's the exact powerplant this convertible had when it left the St. Louis factory 52 years ago. It only gets better when paired with the Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. The power then goes to the optional 3.55 rear end with Positraction, which provides a good mix of fast off the line and calm cruising. It's these kinds of options that make us hope you'll drive this Corvette to its fullest. After all, the pictures show you that all the mechanical elements, from the engine bay to the suspension, are amazingly immaculate, but it would be a shame if this ultimate '63 just lived the life of a trailer queen.To understand how rare this Corvette is, there were only 2,610 fuel-injected cars built in 1963. Since then, the roadsters have often been harvested to help restore the split-window coupes. So you're looking at an opportunity that might never come around again. Call now!!
