A shining small block, four-on-the-floor, and cool upgrades (like the big block hood) make this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette convertible a great-looking icon. And it's always awesome to find a classic convertible that has cold-blowing air conditioning so it can be fully enjoyed on any sunny day.
The trim tag tells us that the Riverside Red is the factory-correct color, and investment in a respray means there's a nice gloss on this sunshine-friendly convertible. But what you'll probably really take notice of is the stinger hood. As a first-year Sting Ray, we weren't up to the big block era yet, but it seems right on a car with this kind of flair. And thanks to the black insert on the hood, this one looks particularly good and coordinated with the roof up. And the brightwork gives you a well-done total package with the two-piece chrome bumpers, ribbed rockers, and 15-inch wheels.
Just like the exterior, the interior is red with black accents, so this drop-top has a very well-coordinated look inside and out. This classic wants to be a comfortable driver, and so you have features such as a retro-style AM/FM digital tune and cold blowing R-134A air conditioning. 1963 was the debut for the C2, and they renewed the Corvette's driver-focused attitude. The dual-cowl dash spirit from the C1 returned, but now with even more room for the full gauge package, including large speedo and tach. Bucket seats, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, tilt steering column, and a bright gear shifter calling out for your right hand - this Sting Ray knows how to speak directly to your enthusiast heart.
Under the upgraded hood is a bright and tidy small block V8. Since this is a sunny-day convertible, the big polish on the motor will really pop in the sunshine. And as you dig deeper, you'll also appreciate the added power of the Brawler four-barrel carburetor, upgraded intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. The V8 fires up eagerly, idles nicely, and makes an intoxicating rumble. And you get to take firm control over it all with the four-speed manual transmission. The Sting Ray debuted the fully independent sports suspension, and because this wants to be a true driver's classic, they also upgraded this to power brakes w/front discs.
The arrival of the Sting Ray is a true milestone, and this is the one that lets you enjoy this history where it really matters: out on the road. So if you want a classic Corvette to enjoy and drive, don't miss this deal. Call now!
