1963 Chevrolet Corvette Roadster - Matching Numbers - Two Tops For Sale

Fantastic opportunity. I bought this as an unfinished project last year, it had just been painted and the restoration had become a little stalled. I thought the car had a real nice feel to it and so this became my pet project, since then we have been gradually working through it and have made this 63 a really great car. Everything that has been done to this Corvette is all brand new and has had test mileage only.

Repainted to a good standard in the original Daytona Blue Metallic. The body and paint are very nice indeed. We have replaced a good deal of the exterior trim including the gas door with a new original roller style gas door, new original style antenna, new nose emblem, new door handles and drivers mirror. The body weatherstripping has been replaced in its entirety. Door locks are new and working as they should, lights functioning correctly, wiper motor working correctly and we have rebuilt the washer pump, along with new washer hoses and nozzles. The bumpers have been re-chromed and installed with new hardware. All exterior ornamentation is in great shape.
This is a very pretty car, when the sun hits the paint it looks about a mile deep, and the Rally wheels really work with it. The whole car really pops.

The original numbers matching 327/250 motor starts easily and runs very strong indeed. The intake manifold has been replaced with a 300hp cast iron unit and a Holley 4 barrel carburettor. We have reinstalled the motor and transmission with new plugs, points, condenser, cap, rotor, leads, oil and filter, air filter, new upper and lower radiator hoses, heater hoses, new expansion tank and cap, new Bosch battery and battery hold down kit, new rubber fuel hoses, new engine mounts and the correct ignition shielding. We also installed a new headlight wiring harness at this time and replaced the alternator and voltage regulator.
This car drives great, and is very, very fast! I cant explain it, it is just a ridiculously quick car - I mean surprisingly fast - laugh out loud fast!

The original Borg Warner T-10 4 speed transmission has just been rebuilt with new front and rear main bearings, synchro rings, gaskets, seals, strut rods, springs, needle bearings, and a new countershaft, all new mounts and hardware, and shifts perfectly. The new clutch is lovely and light and very easy to live with, and all the linkages were renewed as necessary. You do not need a leg like the Jolly Green Giant with this mid year roadster, it is a very easy and pleasurable car to drive, did I mention it is fast too??

We have fitted a new Magnaflow 2 1/2" dual aluminized exhaust, with new hangers and tips, hooked up to the original 2 1/2" cast iron manifolds, the best GM ever made! the manifolds have new studs and mount bolts and new gaskets throughout. The nicest sounding and best quality exhaust system that can be fitted to a Corvette bar none.

The front suspension has been fully rebuilt with new upper and lower A-Arm bushes, new upper and lower Moog ball joints and 460lb Grand Touring front coil springs.
The rear suspension has been rebuilt with new trailing arms and bushes, new rear spindles, new rear wheel bearings, new stainless steel trailing arm shims, new rear leaf spring and mount kit, new strut rods and camber bolts, as usual we used all new hardware throughout. Driveshafts have been rebuilt with new U/J's, yokes, and locking tabs. New lower shock mounts and hardware. All of these parts have zero miles, and we have also carried out a full four wheel alignment. The differential was removed and fitted with new pinion and side yoke seals, new diff oil and additive of the correct type and all new mounting bushes including the crossmember. AC Delco shocks front and rear. The suspension and drivetrain of this car is as good as you can get.

The braking system has been overhauled with new shoes and wheel cylinders all round, all new flexi hoses, and all new brake lines throughout, handbrake cables and hardware have all been replaced. The car is well shod with a recent set of whitewall tyres on 67 Ralley wheels with new centre caps. I think these are by far the best looking wheels you can get on a mid year car and they really work well on this met blue 63.

The dark blue interior is very nice indeed and largely original, the dash nacelles are pretty much perfect, the instrument cluster has a bit of age to it which is quite nice, as does the original perspex glovebox door. All the instruments work as they should and we have just replaced the battery gauge with a new one. The clock is only right twice a day though....
Seats, carpets, and door panels are all lovely. We have fitted new door handles, window cranks, and much of the door hardware, along with new door latches and locks. We have tried to do as much as possible to make sure this 63 roadster is niggle free for the new owner.

The soft top has been replaced with an off white canvas top which fits well and looks good, we have installed new soft top weatherstripping throughout. The original hard top is in excellent condition and has just been repainted to match the car.

This is a very well sorted mid year roadster, the work that has been carried out is all to our usual standards and no corner has been cut. A huge amount of money has been spent to get the car to this standard, and I would think you would find it very difficult to find another car that has been rebuilt to this level with as many new parts and all done very correctly at this price. I think this car represents incredible value for money and is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity.

We will take another C1 to C3 Corvette in part exchange and can arrange delivery to anywhere in the UK including all ports.
