1963 Split Window Corvette. Matching #’s. 327/300 h.p.

Early 80's frame-up restoration. Same owner since. Garage find.



In 1983, a full frame-up restoration was completed on this rust-free, accident-free, California Split Window Corvette. That is when the current owner purchased it. For the next 40 years he put just a few thousand miles on his pride and joy. In fact, he used it so little that it began to suffer from such limited use. 

From 2014 to 2017 he commissioned a second restoration of the car. This included repainting the car its original Daytona Blue color, and redoing all of the upholstery including door panels. New carpets were also installed. All chrome was either polished or replaced. New tires were also mounted.

The original matching numbers engine was also refreshed in 2015 due to lack of use, and reinstalled. The manual 4 speed was still in excellent condition and remained untouched. 

Thereafter the owner expected to use the Corvette more often. However, due to life circumstances, and getting older, he found himself still not using the car except for running it up and down the road every couple of months just to keep all systems operational. He has finally decided to dust the car off, take it out of the garage into the sunlight, and find a new home for it.
