1963 Chevrolet Corvette Split Window Barn Find Should Clean Up Nicely

For most enthusiasts, the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette split window coupe is the kind of classic you either love or hate. Some think the split window look is tough on the eyes, others think it’s a stunning work of art. If you fall into that latter category, then now’s your chance to own one of these rare and beautiful Corvettes, it’s up for sale on eBay.
Revealed by our friends at BarnFinds, it’s clearly been sitting in storage for quite a few years. A thick layer of dust covers up that split window—along with most everything else. Under the dust, though, is a handsome, non-original Daytona Blue paint job, but the interior is the original Dark Blue.

The dust on the outside coats the inside as well, so it could use a good cleaning from top to bottom. The seller says it needs new rugs, even though what you’ll see in the photos are floor mats. Otherwise, it seems to be in good physical condition.
It might look okay, but it doesn’t run, so you’ll need to do some work before you can take it for a drive. The engine isn’t the original either, and it’s paired to a 4-speed transmission. Still worth it for the price? Let your checkbook decide.
