1963 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 3-Speed

Featured on AutoHunter.comonline auction platform operated by ClassicCars.com, we present a 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray convertible.

According to the National Corvette Museum, it is one of 10,919 Corvette convertibles produced for the 1963 model year. It has traveled less than 2,000 miles since a frame-off restoration in 2011. Power is reportedly provided by the original 327 cubic-inch V8 engine, which is paired with a three-speed manual transmission. Features include retractable headlights, a Delco AM/FM radio, and a four-wheel independent suspension. Finished in red and equipped with a color-matched removable hardtop over a black vinyl interior, this first-ever C2 Corvette is now offered with a car cover and a clean title.

The red exterior is completed by a body-colored removable hardtop with a glass rear window. Equipment includes retractable headlights, a driver’s side rearview mirror, a door sill trim, and a rear antenna.

A set of 15-inch steel rims with full covers and whitewall radial tires give the Sting Ray a great grip on the road.

The two bucket seats are covered in black vinyl and flanked by black vinyl door panels. Equipment includes manual windows, a manual steering wheel, a Delco AM/FM radio and a manual shifter mounted on the center console.

Vehicle information is displayed on a 160 mph speedometer, 7,000 rpm tachometer, and fuel, oil pressure, battery, and temperature gauges. The odometer shows 73,692 miles, but the true mileage on this Corvette is unknown.

Under the front hood is what is said to be the original 327 cubic-inch V8 engine. It is hooked up to a four-barrel carburetor and sends power to the rear wheels through a three-speed manual transmission.

Four-wheel independent suspension helps this Corvette handle twisty roads. Four-wheel hand-held disc brakes bring it to a stop.

The auction for the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray convertible will end on Friday, July 12, 2024 at 11:30 a.m. (PDT).
