1963 Chevy Corvette Stingray Coupe – The basic concept was the same as the original 1953 Corvette; a two-seat fiberglass-bodied sports car blending power, performance, and style. But the 1963 Corvette saw major improvements: a new frame with all-wheel independent suspension, a redesigned sleek nose housing pop-up headlights, and a coupe body with a distinctive two-piece rear window. Bill Mitchell had envisioned the 1963 Corvette with a full-length spine, starting with a central hood bulge, continuing over the roof, and running the rear window into the car’s tail. At the center of the rear deck, a racing-style gas-filler cap was used. The tops of the doors were cut into the roof, easing entry and exit in the low-slung coupe. To emphasize the ridge, Mitchell called for split glass panels to be used for the rear window. forming a complete visual connection with the central raised sections on the hood. The rear view of a 1963 Corvette Split-Window Coupe has become one of the most iconic images in classic car history.
