Default How many '63 roadsters & split window coupes left ?

Is there anybody that knows or has kept track of how many split widow coupes are still registered today.


PLEASE NOTE: Since the interest in this subject has caused this thread to become a Sticky, I have added "roadsters" to the title in the interest of the data being collected... thanks!

Hi Dave,

I have no idea how many remain or are registered but I have kinda kept track for over 15 yrs.

Including some 63's that were recorded prior to me and some cars recorded by others, and also including some that were wrecked or stolen etc. over the yrs, I've listed over 3,100 cars in my '63 file.
Of the approximate 3,100 '63 total, 1770 are split windows.

I'd guess that a good number survive, at the very least double that figure and most probably quite a bit higher.

I would love to hear from '63 owners who would contribute to this file.

Syd

Hey Jim,

#7,587 is not recorded on my list and I have few cars recorded near it.
Was it a coupe and when did you last see it? What color etc.?

If you prefer, I'm at:

Would like to know more about your 2 split windows.

I have no info about #19,004 but do have #16,307 recorded. Is it Red/Red or just repainted Riverside when I listed it?

For the record, I don't list names and locations...just the cars.

Yes,

I have your Silver Coupe #18,612 recorded including the Body number
Would you like me to email you with the cars I have listed that are closest to your '63?

My Saddle/Saddle Coupe is #15,240. Anyone close?
Do you guys think I'm within range with the estimate of how many are still out there??

# 111202 in the 63 registry is a Black coupe that was corrected from its manufacture to have a proper rear window instead of that two piece thingie or whatever you call it right after the 64`s came out....

Here's a SWC that I bid on at the recent Zephyrhills Florida auction (Feb 2011).

It's one of only 278 '63s that came with factory A/C:

Hi Reed,

Closest car I have info for is Daytona Blue FI 4spd Coupe #12,054 that was last recorded in the late 70's.

Can you please tell me about your #12,052 so I can include it.

I also try to list the cars Body number and known options whenever possible.

Hi,

I did have your radio delete FI Black '63 recorded with the notation of no split.
Also have your cars Body number listed

Thanks!
