Default 1963 Coupe 327/340

I bought this car from a fellow forum member this spring, anticipating that I would keep it a very long time. Unfortunately, my circumstances have changed and I am offering it for sale to accommodate an upcoming business acquisition. Sacrifice for the benefit of family.

1963 Corvette Coupe, Sebring Silver 327/340, 4.11 gear, radio delete. Original engine, tags, trans, and rear. Documented ownership history back to day one. Super straight body, paint is a 9/10, frame is beautiful and rust-free. One repaint on an excellent body, interior is original as-delivered except for a replacement carpet in 1978.

I fully sorted this car out after being taken out of long-term storage this spring.

Price is $120K FIRM. I already have a dealer offer at near that price, so I am not very negotiable. I would like to see this car go to someone else with the same intensity and passion I have for it. It's an excellent example and something that any real Corvette enthusiast can drive and show with great pride. Clear Illinois title in my name.

Looks like a museum quality investment car that checks all the right boxes. "Money in the bank" right there...

Thanks for the positive comments! I am not happy about selling it, maybe I won't have to in the end, but for now it's on the market and definitely for sale.

I should also note I have the original 1963-only steel wheels and covers, which are included with the sale. I also have several boxes of spares and a 2" thick folder of history and receipts.

[COLOR=left=black]I inspected this car for the previous owner. This is a very nice car that appears to have always been well taken care of. Anyone interested in the inspection report email me and I will send you the report.

Default Thanks Pancho

Thanks Pancho for sharing the inspection report.

Since that time, here is an abbreviated list of work done between the last owner and me:

Spring/summer 2018
-Go through all suspension and steering, replace any worn parts, align to factory specs
-Rebuild steering column
-Rebuild original AFB
-Rebuild front brakes
-Full tune-up
-Rebuild and curve distributor for ideal street performance (this is my specialty)
-Change ALL fluids
-New correct welded exhaust, correct repro 63 rear hangers


Between 2011-2016:
-Remove and polish all exterior stainless (it's nearly perfect)
-Refinish intake and valve cover aluminum
-Install NOS door handles
-Install new interior and engine wiring harness
-Install DBKO wheels and Uniroyal radial tires (full set of original 1963-only steel wheels and wheel covers in excellent condition included)
-Restore gauge cluster
-Install professionally refurbished rear trailing arm assemblies

I will note also that the original engine has less than 1500 miles on a complete rebuild, documented with pages of receipts.

Price reduction to $120K, which is firm and the least I will take.
