I guess I missed something on this. Why not just buy a '63 split window? Why convert a '67 to a split window?

If it is the big block and the disk brakes, you can always add them to a '63.

Can't wait to see the finished product! The perfect car to take to a Corvette event and make the "experts" go nuts! Too much fun.

Not as fast as I used to be but the 67 split window is one piece now . Those wide quarters finish the look nicely .http://forums.corvetteforum.com/atta...1&d=1317938814

Nothing mythical about a '67 split window. I have guys at car shows telling me all the time about the one his brother had but they were metal.

Paul,
Thanks for the tour of the shop today. Like I said, I checked GM historical records and Harley Earl did in fact commission one Split Window '67
Fred

ps. Send me photos of the Daimler SP250 when it's done
