1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06/N03

In 1963 the ultimate Sting Ray incorporated Regular Production Options Z06 and N03. The "Special Performance Equipment" option was combined with the RPO N03 36 gallon fuel tank. 63 of the 199 Z06s produced were built with that option. Stored in a garage/barn for 51 years. Extensive body-off restoration in 2017. Z06 special heavy duty brakes and suspension. Original matching numbers 327/360 HP engine. 4-speed manual transmission.
The Z06 combined the most powerful Corvette engine, the L84 327/360 HP Rochester fuel-injected small-block V-8, with a mandatory close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission and 3.70 Positraction rear end. Heavy-duty springs and shocks and a larger-diameter front sway bar were included, as were monster brakes. This 1963 Z06 coupe retains its original matching-numbers driveline.
An amazing barn find. Documented with the dealer invoice and deposit check receipt from 1965.
This example failed to change hands against an estimate of $550,000 - $650,000
