Vehicle Detail

1963 CORVETTE STINGRAY SPLIT WINDOW
EACH MID-YEAR CORVETTE HAS INCREDIBLE STYLE AND OFFERS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE, WITH THE 1963 BEING MOST FAMOUS FOR IT’S SPLIT REAR WINDOW ON THE COUPE. DESIGNER,
BILL MITCHELL, SAID THE LINES WERE INSPIRED BY OBSERVING STING RAYS WHILE ON HOLIDAY. ODDLY, BEFORE 1963, THE CORVETTE WAS CRITICIZED BY AUTOMOTIVE JOURNALISTS FOR IT’S OUTDATED CHASSIS AND INCONSISTENT STYLING.WHILE STYLING CAN BE SUBJECTIVE, CHASSIS COMPLAINTS WERE JUSTIFIED.      HOWEVER,BILL MITCHELL, LARRY SHINODA  AND THEIR DESIGN TEAM HIT A GRAND SLAM WITH THE 1963 MODEL LEAVING CRITICS WITH LITTLE TO COMPLAIN ABOUT.THE 1963 CHASSIS WAS SO GOOD IT BASICALLY REMAINED UNCHANGED FOR 19 YEARS.
THE 1963′s DESIGN ACTUALLY HAD A HISTORY BEFORE THEIR INTRODUCTION.
WHEN BILL MITCHELL FIRST SAW LARRY SHINODA’S SPLIT-WINDOW DESIGN HE FELL IN LOVE WITH IT. ZORA-ARKUS DUNTOV APPARENTLY HATED IT. BUT HISTORY DOES NOW SHOW THE 1963 CORVETTE SPLIT-WINDOW DESIGN ASBEING ONE OF THE MOST COLLECTIBLE OF THE MID-YEAR STING RAY MODELS.
