AUTOART 1963 Corvette Coupe

AUTOART 1963 Corvette Coupe

Of all Corvettes, the 1963 Coupe is the most memorable. It marked a new era for American sports cars in many ways. However, it is the unique “split window fastback” feature that makes it so collectible and instantly recognizable. A little-known fact is that there were more Corvette Coupes made in ’63 than any other C2 model year. Despite this production oddity, the ’63 was the one and only Corvette to have a rear backbone running between the rear glass. AUTOart has released its ’63 Corvette Coupe in a limited production of 6,000 pieces worldwide. Finished in Daytona Blue (code 916) with the rare red interior (XC), the look is stunning. Under the hood is a well-detailed 327cid, 360hp, fuel-injected engine done up in the correct colors and appendages. As an added bonus, the headlight trays flip over. The interior is as good as it gets for the price range—and maybe even a little better. The suspension is also well detailed and the whitewall tires and steel wheels with spinner hubcaps really bring you back to the day.
