Call Or Text Pete @6788585786 On this 1963 Split window Coupe. It was a Day Two build, that was converted into a race car in 1964.

The original 63 Split windows are complete and in excellent condition. They are even wrapped in the original corrugated cardboard from that 1964 build. The car was indeed a 1963, the year was verified by The hidden Frame VIN, the 63 specific Windshield frame, & the unique 1963 only Roof line & visible post cuts.
