Evaluation: Represented as, and appears to be, the matching numbers engine. Good recent paint and older chrome and interior. Clean engine although it isn’t fresh. Same for the chassis. Clear, bright gauges. A 360hp Fuelie in good driver condition.
Bottom Line: Among ’63 Corvettes the “Split Window” coupe reigns supreme so, as in this case, anyone wanting a real Fuelie ’63 Vette can take refuge in a convertible, buying it well under Fuelie coupe values. This transaction is appropriate for this Corvette’s equipment and condition, a price that’s fair to both seller and buyer. It was reported sold by Mecum at Indy six years ago (in 2016) for $82,500.
