The 1963 Corvette represented a dynamic shift in the purpose of the Corvette and for the first time, GM had a proper no-excuses sports car on its hands. Penned by Larry Shinoda under the direction of GM Design Chief Bill Mitchell, the 1963 Corvette featured a redesigned chassis with independent rear suspension, retractable headlights, and choices between two distinct models, the Sport Coupe and the Convertible. Nearly 60 years since it was first introduced, the C2 Corvette remains one of the most recognizable designs in automotive history.
This 1963 Corvette Convertible was built on May 11, 1963, and purchased new from Berger Motor Sales in Ionia, Michigan. The Daytona Blue exterior was complemented with a Dark Blue interior while its curb appeal is further enhanced with the whitewall tires, standard wheel covers, and a white convertible soft top. The Sting Ray Convertible is powered by the optional 327 ci/300 hp V8 engine with the four-speed manual transmission and includes the G91 Special Highway Axle with a 3.08 gear ratio, a very rare option found on only 211 of the 21,513 Corvettes produced that year. An auxiliary hard top is also included as is the original paperwork for the number’s matching car.
This charitable fundraiser supports the non-profit Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, Indiana. The automobile museum inhabits the auto builder’s original factory showroom building and today it displays 140 vintage, antique, classic, and special interest cars to the thousands of automotive enthusiasts who visit each year. When you support the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum by making a tax-deductible donation, you help fulfill their mission of providing unique educational experiences based on the history and legacy of the automotive industry.
