Looks yummy.

Now forget 80% of what you THINK you know about midyears based on your '65.
'63s are one whole different ballgame!

Congrats. I think that particular 63 is an excellent choice, I was admiring it myself a few months back.

You have the right idea--owning both a 65-67 convertible and a 63 coupe gives you everything. I was thinking about parting with my 67 to buy a 63 coupe recently, then I drove a 63 and realized one can't replace the other. Two very different cars.

Beautiful car! Congratulations. I live just east of you. My 63 Coupe is being stripped down as we speak to take it back to its correct Sebring Silver. Hope to see your car one day.

I have fond memories of putting my 63 in the garage with his cousins.

Was a long trip back to Montana.
