Hi Steve,
I do have this car listed as your picture shows and noted that it was now Black/Black. That's all the info I have for #6.717. Do you know the hp and trans type? Is this the car that was claiming to have a/c?

Thanks!
Syd

Hi Syd

Yes, this is the car that had AC on it. It was stated to be a 300 hp, but I did not see the engine pad. It was a 4 speed. Car was sold at Mecum Kansas City in December. Was originally a no sale the next month in Mecum Kissimmee, then ran through again and sold again.

Default Number 9407

I am the original owner of my '63 triple black convertible. Next month will be 54 years.

My engine was built on Feb. 2, 1963. My Vette was delivered to Rapids Chevrolet in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Feb. 25, 1963. I took possession Feb.27, 1963. I was 18 years old when I stared buying it. I paid every dime on it but did need Dad (with Mom's approval) to cosign the loan


I ordered 340HP, 4 speed (T10), positraction, 4:11 gears, hardtop, AM radio, white wall tires. I still have the original engine, transmission, hardtop, radio. I do not have the original tires. They (all 5 of them) were worn out at 19,000 miles. I had the tie rods moved to the front holes the summer of 1963. They are still in that location. In the 70ís I replaced the shoe brakes with disc brakes, installed headers, side tubes, Pertronix igniter & MSD ignition.

The frame had to be repaired from all the salt driving the summer of 1981. My sons and I disassembled it, had the frame repaired and with help, put it back together that fall.

I drove it 63,000 miles the first 2 years. Since then have averaged over 10,000 miles per year. Current mileage is 548,000. It has been driven in all lower 48 states, Washington DC & all the Canadian provinces. Our (my wife & I) 2007 trip out west was 6,000 miles. Our 3 week trip to Labrador in 2008 was 7,100 miles. Since 2007 I have been running a new 350CI, 400HP, 10 to 1, no lead power, with 3:08 gears. Since 2007 we have averaged 14,000 miles per year.

I can be contacted at: sstone@chorus.net

Thanks for the interest and safe driving to all.

Hi George,
Very beautiful looking '63! A Black over Saddle leather roadster is the bomb.
I'm not sure if you posted on this thread before but I had your '63 #13,412 recorded, including the note that your interior was now Black. I had your car listed as being a 300hp but I see the high redline tach in your picture. Is it in fact an original 340 car?

Thanks George!
Syd

I don't know (I was led to believe it was a 340HP) --- it has DATE correct block but not the original. It is now a 365hp with 340hp stickers It now has correct air cleaner (not as in pic). Also has '65 Disc brakes (all gm parts)

Default mine

Mine was found as a tub with Vin, title but no trim tag. Perfect candidate for MidAmerica Grand Sport 2

Hi Racer,
Sorry for the late reply.
Would you mind sharing the VIN so that I can include it?

Thanks!

Default 63 tub

This is my original, unmolested 1963 Coupe. Yes purist, I butchered it and converted this beauty into a Grand Sport 2 pictured above.
