1963 Chevrolet Corvette
Thank you for taking the time to learn about this rare Corvette roadster.
This rare 1963 roadster has the 250 HP engine ( most torque of all non-fuel injected corvettes), 4 speed with positraction. But what makes it particularly rare is this car has not been restored. This is one of the finest examples of a perfectly preserved classic Corvette. The original inspection markings, build number (marked on the fiberglass with a crayon) and other factory markings are from the factory.
As the photo's show, most of the original factory markings remain in the car. Note the VIN number tag. The original VIN tag was spot welded to the bird cage. In the beginning, the spot welds where made through the paint, which made the attachment weak. Many early production the tags would fall off. Not long into production, the paint was ground off area where the VIN tag was attached, making the spot weld adhere. If the VIN tag has paint, it may not be attached in the original fashion.
The originality is supported by numerous NCRS Top Flight Awards (the latest in 2007) and a Founders Award. I rarely drive the car, only enough to exercise it and keep it in top mechanical condition. The Top Flights are representative of the cars current condition.
This Corvette runs and handles like a dream. I would not hesitate to take it on a road trip. Since it does get driven, it does show some wear and could use a new top. Minor chipping in the paint and light wear inside. The reduced asking price reflects replacement costs. But as you can see, the paint has been well taken care of. All the gages work, including the clock. It is an early 63, so it has the AM radio with the wonderbar signal seeker (which also works as original).
This, with all the original pieces (to many to list), make this a truly rare and unique investment.
NADA Guides price = $91,000. Edmunds price = $95,000. Prices for the convertible have gone up $15,000 to $20,000 in the last few years.

Cash or Bank Check Only. In the case of a bank or cashiers check, no possession can be taken until the funds clear. Buyer will be responsible for the cost of shipping and any other fees and taxes.
I am motivated to sell and all reasonable offers will be considered. If you can't find the quality Corvette at a discounted price at the Monterey auction this weekend, or other auctions, this is as fine an original car available on the market today.
