Fastback Coupe
The Corvette was launched in 1953 with 300 hand-built polo white convertibles built during the first year. It was an instant styling sensation that lacked the performance to back up its impressive looks. This was quickly remedied and by 1955 a new V-8 was available. Body changes in 1956 and 1958 improved the look of the car but maintained the same general design as the original. In 1963 a radical new body style was introduced.

Influenced by Bill Mitchell's racing Stingray and the Q Corvette designs from 1957, the new body was an absolute sensation. Elements of the Q Corvette and the Stingray Special racer were incorporated into an experimental project called XP-720, which was the design program that led directly to the production 1963 Corvette String Ray.

The XP-720 sought to deliver improved passenger accommodation, more luggage space, and superior ride and handling over the previous Corvettes. The Q Corvette envisioned a smaller, more advanced Corvette as a coupe-only model, boasting a rear transaxle, independent rear suspension, and four-wheel disc brakes, with the rear brakes mounted inboard. Exterior styling was purposeful, with peaked fenders, a long nose, and a short, bobbed tail.

This particular example was ordered with ever available option, including air conditioning. Only 278 coupes were built with air conditioning. Freshly restored in Saddle Tan, this car was built in the last week of production for 1963. The 1963 Split Window Coupe is widely recognized as one of the most iconic designs to ever have been produced.
