My '63 Split-Window Coupe prior to selling to leave for military service (US Naval Aviation).

I bought it new at Harry Mann Chevrolet in 1963. It is an "all peformance" 327/340hp 4-Speed Coupe. the only "luxurn items were the AM/FM Radio and the Power Windows (essential to talk with the girls!!!).

I also owned a 1954 (All Original) Corvette in White ansd my business partner had the 1954 Maroon Corvette and his Father hd the Red 1957 Corvette with the 283/270ho (Dual Quad) with the Power Glide - Also "All Original".

1008 car nuts gave this a thumbs-up. Do you? Thumbs-up

Hey Don, welcome to the site.......I'm the first thumb-upper on your ride. Of course I may be over zealous since my 64 is on here too. what a great story to still have your original 63, the holy grail of the Vettes. I like the reasoning for the electric windows. A beautiful assembly of C1s too.

Oh by the way, if you want to get rid of that nasty bar that runs down the back window blocking your view, I'd consider trading cars with you. My 64 has a clean clear view of the road behind, you can see all the cars you passed. That's a shame to have that blocked view. I'm just trying to help a fellow Corvette owner out. :-)

You may not have the 63 anymore but you have your memories and the pictures help you remember.

Not many guys can say they owned a 63 Split Window. Wish I could, thanks, Mario
