Did the 63 Corvette come from the factory at all with side pipes or knock offs? Or were these options added at the dealer or were the added by owners after the '64 came out?

If the side pipes were available from the factory, did it come with any particular engine or was it wide open?

Just trying to understand what would be considered correct for a '63.

thanks, Herb

No factory side exhaust system until 1965. No dealer installed side exhaust until 1965.

Knock offs were supposedly available in 1963 but to my understanding there were problems with the tires holding air on the rims and they were canceled as factory option. I'm sure John Z will chime in with the correct info on the knock off wheels.
