CORVETTE 1963



PRODUCTION 21,513 with 10,919 convertible, 10,594 coupes
BASE PRICE $4,037 (coupe), $4,257 (convertible)
BASE STYLE Sport Coupe
OPTIONAL STYLE Convertible
BASE ENGINE 327 cubic inches, 250 horsepower
ENGINE OPTIONS L75 327/300, L76 327/340, L84 327/360 (fuel injection) with 2,610 produced at a price of $430.40 additional
COLOR CHOICES Riverside Red, Tuxedo Black, Ermine White, Saddle Tan, Silver Blue, Daytona Blue, Sebring Silver
INTERIOR COLORS Black, Silver, Red, Dark Blue, Saddle
WHEEL COLORS Black, Silver, Red, Dark Blue

Body & Chasis Coupe 30837S100001--40867S121543

***** Corvette history: Brand new body styles, the beginning of the "C2" Corvettes.. The convertible was priced higher, but today a 1963 coupe commands thousands more to purchase. Probably the 1963 coupe, with its rear split-window (only year), is the best known body style recognized by non-Corvette owners. These Corvettes have recessed metal hood louvers, and 1963 marked the beginning for hidden headlights. Now that AM radios became more advanced, very few 1963's were without one.

Although it states coupe, technically its a hardtop. Why? Because it doesn't have a center post, targa top, hatchback. Also, there is more than one definition for a coupe. Please research and find out. I'm tired.:lol:

Corvette history: The 1st year for the new C3 shark body style. Gone were side vent windows making some very hot rides. New for the coupe were a removable back window and the 2 piece detachable T-Tops. Convertibles had an optional HARDTOP available. The optional side exhaust pipes were significally different than those found on 1965-1967 vettes.

Father. I see what you are saying hear.I thank your right and a coupe is not a hardtop. The hardtop is much butter looking then the coupe I feel and a faster ride' and has a trunk.

Thanks Father.
