Vintage 1963 Split Window Corvette Sting Ray T-Shirt. Size medium shirt in very good condition.
Of all Corvettes, the split-window Corvette Sting Ray of 1963 ranks as one of history’s all-time favorites. The 1963 model marked the beginning of the second generation of the sports car’s history. It is also the first time a Corvette would be offered in coupe form. At the center of the 1963 Corvette coupe’s legacy is the car’s split-window back glass design. While the engineering, performance, and styling of the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray is well-received by the public, the split-window back was not.
The center pillar blocked outward visibility to the rear and quickly became a safety concern. Many owners would remove the two bisected panes and replace them with a single window. Chevy dealerships would even replace the split windows with a single back glass—a cardinal sin in today’s Corvette collector environment. After a single year of production, the split rear-window design is replaced with a single back glass in 1964, and the split-window Corvette of 1963 became one of the most notorious (and beloved!) asterisks in automotive history.
