Built in St. Louis Missouri, the ‘63 Corvette was the first rendition of the Corvette’s second generation. The car sold well; production that year reached a total of 21,513 cars, 50% more than the previous record-setting 1962 Corvette. The 1963 model year coupes are easily identifiable by their two piece, or “split” rear window. While Corvette chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov never liked the split rear window because it blocked rear vision, designer Bill Mitchell felt it was a key part of the design.
The car had a curb weight of 3015lbs and measured 175 inches in length, with a 98 inch wheelbase. All 1963 cars had 327 cubic inch V8s, which made 250 hp standard, with optional variants that made 300 hp, 340 hp and 360 hp.
