History of the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Coupe

For many Corvette enthusiasts, the 1963 split-window model is the pinnacle of vintage ‘Vettes. It’s one of the most easily recognizable and widely appreciated members of the Corvette family; whether you’re a devoted aficionado or simply a casual admirer, chances are you understand the notability of the split-window.  The 63 Corvette tends to top the Corvette-lover’s list of dream cars.

Few Corvettes have ever achieved as much notoriety as the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray with its sexy aerodynamic design by Bill Mitchell and Larry Shinoda. Motor Trend testers remarked,  “We thought the old model cornered darn well, but there’s no comparing it to this new one.” Road & Track stated that the 1963 Corvette “will know few peers.” The model has become something of a design classic, renowned for its combination of European-inspired high style and American brawn, and it remains coveted by Corvette collectors as a landmark in the history of what may be Chevrolet’s most important model.  Also new was the first-ever production Corvette Coupe, immediately recognized by its split rear window. While the basic design of the coupe would last until 1967, the “split-window” would not.
