1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe. I am a private individual who loves Corvettes and just happened to stumble upon the 63. I purchased it not really knowing too much about the numbers correct stuff - I just loved the car. The seller owned the car for over 30 plus years and told me the car was virtually unmolested with the exception of a paint color change sometime in the 1980's. Upon purchasing it, I had a professional Corvette shop go through it to find out it was all numbers correct on the engine and transmission, however it had a different newer rear in it. The also checked the body and bonding strips and could not find any remnants of any body damage. They believe it was never hit. They checked the frame and suspension and felt the car was in remarkable condition for its age. The block casting numbers are 3782870 and the pad is stamped with the partial VIN as shown in the pic.
The car has the highly sought after 4 speed 340 horsepower drivetrain. It runs and drives amazing for its age. It seems to have a bit of an aggressive cam as it has a nice lope. I spent around $2000 plus on getting it running and driving great last year after sitting for a about a 2 years as I initially did not have it registered. The car is fully registered and titled in my name. The mileage is 74019 and is showing actual mileage on the title and the previous owner stated he put very few miles on it during his 30 plus year of ownership.
I have been told the car was originally riverside red with a black interior. I was told it was painted sometime in the 1980's. There are some minor cracks and chips around the paint, but it still shows beautifully for its age. It is almost too nice to repaint - so I just left it alone.
Mechanically, I had the fuel pump rebuilt, a new water pump installed, new GM reproduction hoses and belt replaced, all wheel bearings and brakes checked and some parts replaced, new battery, oil and filter change, carburetor rebuild and calibration and new points and plugs and wires. I also had the fluids flushed and changed. The car does not run hot even in standing traffic. All lights work and wipers - the turn signal sticks sometimes and should likely be addressed down the road. All gauges work including the clock - I have not checked the time, but it does run. Someone changed the radio to a cassette deck long ago - I have the original radio from the car that will come with the car. I was told the wheels were a high quality aftermarket and I have a spare 5th wheel and tire that matches the car and will be included in the sale. I have a bunch of parts to include in the sale including parts that came off the car over the years when something was replaced.
