1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray 'Split-Window' Coupe

1963 marked the 10-year anniversary of the Chevrolet Corvette. It was celebrated with a new 'Sting Ray' design.

The new Corvette featured an independent rear suspension, optional power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning. The iconic ‘split-window’ was a one year only design.
The car was fitted with the L75 300-hp, 327-cu. in. V-8 engine and a Powerglide automatic transmission. This ‘Split-Window’ was listed at $5,648.95 when new, including a $59 delivery charge.
This example is very much the way it left the factory in 1963. The car made $ 93k against an estimate of $100k to $150k.
