The story isn’t new—man keeps car in garage for years, only to pass away before he could restore it. That’s the fate suffered by this 1963 Corvette, which has been sitting in a garage for 35 years. With the passing of the owner, his nephew is now looking to you to be the one to continue its restoration.
Of course, the 1963 Corvette is not just any Corvette—it’s the first of the C2s, and the only one of the series to have the split window. Standard was a mild 250-horse 327, but from there you could get 300, 340, or 360 horsepower with fuel injection. This one for sale is the 340-horse version, supposedly the same one that it was built with.
Currently in Wisconsin, the seller is asking $45,000. For not a lot more, you could buy a C7 Corvette instead, but it’s hard to top the class of a split-window Corvette.
