135826 / 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window

Over the course of four years, this impressive Vette claimed three NCRS Top Flight awards and won a Palmetto Award at the 2009 Hilton Head Island Concours d’Elegance. Today, wrapping an original 327/4-speed drivetrain in stunning silver and black aesthetics, it’s just the Main Street centerpiece you’ve been looking for! The beneficiary of a detailed, body-off restoration that was completed in late 2006, this slick Corvette features a glossy, correct appearance that highlights solid, attractive bodywork. Take one look down the sides of the car’s sinuous body and it becomes very obvious that great care was taken to ensure every panel is aligned to better-than-new condition. Step closer to that body’s mirror-like paint and check out its straight and ripple-free surfaces, which are a product of both clean OEM fiberglass and high quality replacement parts. Grab the pivotal pieces of that well-adjusted resin and experience the kind of excellent fit and finish that’s right at home reflecting a summertime car show. Then step back to admire one very well done classic that was built to parade. Tilt the car’s lightweight hood and you’ll find an original, 327 cubic inch small block that hangs a correct 3782870 casting number behind a correct “RE” suffix code and matching partial VIN. That L76 sends power to an original Muncie 4-speed, which hangs a correct 3831704 casting number and matching partial VIN in front of a posi-traction differential that’s finished with big, 4.11 gears. Turns come courtesy of old school manual steering. Traditional drum brakes mix firm stops with solid handling. And all that fully sorted hardware rolls on 15-inch steelies, which spin 6.70-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around modernist Chevrolet wheel covers. With an original 327/4-speed drivetrain and a roster of carefully chosen replacement pieces, this is a classic you can show and drive just as General Motors intended.
