The 1963 Corvette was one of the best cars of its heyday, with a number of interesting features for the people of the era. It carried a completely updated look, making it a pioneer of the iconic split-window design.
The Corvette Coupe made its elegant debut that year, introducing its new kind of appearance. For a model that brought major changes, it was unquestionably a big success, since it represented almost 50 percent of the total production run, in addition to selling much better than its predecessor.
General Motors made about 21,500 Corvettes for the 1963 model year, 10,900 of which left the factory in convertible form.
We’ve seen how the 1962 C10 Pickup makes a comeback in a new form, but this time, it’s the 1963 Corvette that pops up on eBay. We almost fell in love with it at first sight thanks to its convincing, original look without obvious extra touches that change it a lot.
But if you’re interested in this thing, you wouldn’t want to skip a thorough check. According to seller castlebarct, the old machine has recently come out of storage after sitting there collecting dust for more than a couple of decades.
That’s a long time lime, which actually tells you a little about the condition of the car, i.e., of course it’s not as good as new. And the most interesting and risky thing to know is the health of the engine.
The 1963 Corvette retains its original heart, although its current condition is uncertain. This part is not tested at all by the seller, leaving the potential buyer with whatever consequences they may face regarding the unit beneath the hood; whether it needs a major repair or not.
If you’re a classic car lover, you’ll probably love to have this Corvette, especially since it still looks strong without any noticeable damage. But again, you better do a thorough inspection to make sure that all the parts are intact and in place, as well as to estimate the cost that may be required for a full restoration in case you’re buying a dead Chevy.
At the end of the day, it’s nice to see a legendary vehicle reappear in the present, although the price tag indicates it’s only for an enthusiast who is ready to pay quite a bit. The car is way more expensive than the average new Chevy that works perfectly right off the dealer lot. You need to shell out $90,000 if you want to bring this piece of history home.
