Default 1963 SWC Black on Red

Looking for a black, numbers matching SWC with red interior. Would prefer a driving survivor, but somewhat flexible on condition ... want one I can enjoy on the road (not a trailer queen). Please send any potential leads my way!

thanks! Beautiful car ... will contact them today.

The starting price rice seems a little on the high side, but guessing thatís ďretailĒ and that they have some room to work. Any feedback from the forum on what market value is/should be on this one?

Black is the least produced color for the 64-67 cars, so i would guess that it would be the same for the 63. Also, the black/red combination is rare, and only a few were produced in that color combination. So you have to ask yourself, if I pass on this one, how long will it be before another one shows up, and, how much will that one cost? There has been a huge uptick in demand for 63 SWC in the last few years. Safe to say that this one will only go up in value over time.

I would love to believe that is a real value but I think they are really high.
If that one would be a fuelie or a tanker they are way up there, but a 300 hp or 340 hp, with legit provenance and born with color in A condition is likely closer to $100k.

If someone walked up to me with $134k USD for mine it would be down the road.....😎

Good luck! VERY rare car, I sold mine ( fully restored,
300hp, 4speed, ps,pb,pw, wonderbar) about a year ago after 33 years. Bought a 65, 396/425 roadster, what a beast!
