Selling my very Original, 1963 Corvette convertible Survivor, with RARE Factory Air Conditioning, and the Born with, All Original, and Matching #s Drive Train, including BORN with Motor, Transmission and Rear End.

I have decided to sell this rare 1963 Corvette convertible with Rare Factory Air Conditioning once and for all now, due to my upper back being in such bad shape that it is too painful to even sit in any C1 or C2 Corvettes any longer. After pulling the For Sale ad back in August, I've been driving it almost daily, until my trip back from Los Angeles two weeks ago. To make a long story short, my upper back now needs full support from taller seats like that in a C3, or better off, a new C7. It's funny, that my C5, C6 and C7 disks are all herniated badly, and are causing me so much discomfort.

1963 was the first year of Factory A/C in a Corvette, and was introduced at the end of the production year. Only 278 Corvettes had the C60 Air Conditioning option, of which an estimated only 50 were convertibles, according to Noland Adams Corvette & Restoration Guide Vol. 2, 1963 - 1967 (p.116.) The C60 A/C option was ONLY available with 250hp and 300hp Corvettes. This is a 300hp car. The A/C system blows COLD. The A/C Compressors used on the 1963 Corvettes were from only four lots shipped to Chevrolet. They use Foil Identification Tags, and the first two serials numbers started with either 68 or 73 or 75 or 77. My Corvette A/C Compressor starts with 75, and is dated June 3, 1963 ( F 3 3 ). If you do find another 1963 Corvette with a starting number different than 68, 73, 75 or 77, it is probably a fake, and definitely not the original compressor.

This car was in one family from 1963 until I purchased it 3 years ago, spending all of it's life in Georgia. Originally purchased by a Dr. Vickers in 1963, he then transferred the title to his future wife Mrs Vicki Calhoun in 1964. It stayed in the family until a few years ago, when I purchased it.

This 1963 Corvette is very rare, and very original. It retains some of the original factory paint, all of the original factory interior, and the ORIGINAL A/C Compressor, brackets, etc. The engine has never been out of the car, and the transmission was completely gone through, replacing all seals, and clutches in May 2018.

For those of you in the know, I have posted photos of the original A/C Compressor and brackets. This car is the Real Deal, so if you're interested in owning a piece of history, come check it out for yourself, or send any NCRS Judge here to give you a report. The Original Air Conditioning Instruction sticker is still on the inside of the Glove Box, as shown in the photo.

Below is a list of all of the Important Numbers of the car. Included in the photos are copies of the Original Chevrolet Owner Protection Plan booklet, with Whelchel Vickers name in it, along with the important Engine, Transmission and Rear End codes.

Also included is the Original Owner's Manual, Copies of all of the Titles and Sales Contracts within their family, as well as the NCRS Shipping Data Report.

Try to find another 1963 Corvette convertible with real Factory Air Conditioning, and Documentation like this one has, plus all of it's major components being original, including the Original A/C Compressor and Brackets, Motor, Transmission, Carburetor and Rear End. I had never seen one before, and I had searched for 3 years before finally finding this one. There are only 50 of these 1963 C60 Air Conditioned Corvette convertibles ever built (per Noland Adams book, p.116), of which not many are still on the road today. Compare this 1963 Corvette to the 1967 Corvette L71 427/435hp where 3,754 were built, of which about 6,000 survived, haha. My price if very fair for a RARE 1963 Corvette like this with the C60 option, and MUCH Lower than the price of a Real or Fake 1967 L71 435hp Corvette.
