Fastback Coupe

Sold for $187,600 at 2018 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
This 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Z06 'Big Tank' 'Split-Window' Coupe was delivered new to Bud Gage Chevrolet of Indianapolis, Indiana, on May 23rd of 1963. It was equipped with the RPO Z06 option, of which only 199 Corvettes received in the 1963 model year. The option included the addition of the L84 327-cu. in. 360-bhp fuel-injected V-8 engine, G81 Posi-traction rear end, M20 four-speed manual transmission, heavy-duty racing-type suspension, and oversized, finned steel brake drums with internal fans and a dual-circuit, and vacuum-boosted master cylinder. The N03 36-gallon gas tank was initially mandatory on the Z06 package and later became optional equipment. It is believed that only 63 Z06s were fitted with the 'Big Tank.' Only 15 were given Kelsey-Hayes wheels.

The car later left Indianapolis and worked its way to the St. Louis area where it came into the care of Don Johnson, owner of a car dealership near Chattanooga, Tennessee. The car is believed to have then passed from Ed Everhart of Chattanooga to Paul Rogers. Paul purchased the car but it was his son Larry who drove it for a year or two, before selling it to another local individual. Around 1970, the car was involved in a significant accident and taken off the road. The damaged Corvette was sold and remained in Tennessee until 1976, when it was purchased by James Montgomery of Gold Coast Corvette.

Before the restoration was completed, Montgomery passed away and the car was sold and later finished by another Corvette restorer residing near Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in the early 1980s. Around that time, a replacement engine with casting no. 3782870, casting date A-16-3, was fitted and re-stamped with serial number 3115727 and date F0322RF, and both the chassis and firewall were replaced.

Currently the car has the original Z06 components, proper brake and suspension components, and fuel injection system.
