1963 was an important year for the Corvette since Chevy presented the C2, aka the Stingray. For the first time, they offered the Corvette as a coupe and convertible. It came with an all-new engine, design and technology. The 1963 model also featured an independent rear suspension setup that was advanced for the early ’60s. Also, the coupe had a special split rear window that only lasted for one model year, but that made it legendary and coveted by collectors today.
