Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C2 Split Window Coupe

Highly desirable and restored 1963 Fuel Injection Stingray Split Window coupe finished in Silver Blue Poly over Dark Blue.



The Chevrolet Corvette C2 Stingray was the second generation of Chevrolet's sports car and was produced from 1963-1967. Both the body structure and chassis received radical changes from the C1 variant that came before, with steel supports increasing rigidity and fiberglass panels keeping weight down. A wind tunnel was also used for the first time in Corvette's history to help refine the Stingray's aerodynamics.

1963 also saw the first-ever production Corvette coupe, with a contemporary fastback design, with a split rear window, a very unique styling element for its era. Drivetrains were carried over from the C1 variant and comprised of a wide selection of small-block V8s producing a range of power outputs, from 250bhp for the smallest block up to 360bhp for the chart topping fuel-injected engine. Three transmission options were available for the C2 Stingray, a familiar three-speed manual, a two-speed Powerglide automatic, and the rarest option, a four-speed manual gearbox.

The split window coupe proved to be highly attractive, with 1963 production numbers surpassing the 10,000 mark, a popularity that remains today, with collectors recognising it for its unique design and one-year availability.

The car we are pleased to offer is the definitive example of the C2 Stingray, a matching numbers 1963 Fuel Injection Stingray Split Window coupe. It has the 360bhp L84 V8 engine mated to the highly desirable M20 4-Speed manual transmission. The car was restored a few years ago to its original colours of Silver Blue Poly over a Dark Blue interior, and sits today in fantastic condition after being looked after meticulously by a British-based collector for the last 6 years. This car presents the rare chance to own the near-ultimate spec 1963 Corvette Fuel Injection Stingray Split Window coupe and would make a brilliant addition to any collection as well as a real investment opportunity.
