I think it is a 65 !!!

Mike a 63 Corvette vin is 30837 S 100001 thru 30837 S121513.

21513 cars were madein 1963 including 10594 SW coupes and 10919 convertibles The forth digit is a "6" for convertibles.

Your number 194675S 10xxx represents, I believe, a 65 model Corvette convertible which has vin#'s 194375S100001 thru 194375S123562. Of the 23562 cars made that year, 15376 were convertibles and they all had vin #'s of 194675S10001 and up.

code 414 on the trim tag is for nassau blue ( bright) vinyl interior.

So, your friend has a 65 convertible with a tele column and other options that were available in 1965. Lets take a look at this old car. Maybe there are some treasures there!!!

'63 or '65

Mike and I talked about this on the Solid Axle Lounge. I wonder why a '65 is being represented as a '63. Mike does it have '63 body panels? What does the title say? Is the interior still blue?

Well....

There are 3 verticle partitions on the side body panels behind the front wheels, just a plain hood
I spoke with the owner last night and it was in fact a 65 not a 63 ( My misunderstanding)

Yes the interior is still blue and still vinyl( My mistake again)

The post "Help find a home for a 63" now needs to be ammended.

Looks to have real possibilities. My first midyear was a '65 convert pretty much like this one except for color.

I just don't know.....

I don't think it's worth 20K.......
and the owners stuck on that price.

The other problem is I don't fit in the car. The 16" wheel hits my legs even without the PAD on the seat. I could change the wheel to a 14"and add power steering.. but now I affect the "Survivor" status of the car.

I really don't want a Numbers matching show car, I want a Hot Rod, ( and I hate the BLUE interior)

Mike I will buy it....

How much do you want to step aside??

Perhaps I can find you a car that you want. How about a 65 white /red leather 365hp, orginal motor 2 top, leather interior and protecto plate???

How do I get to see the blue car??

And now the quest begin's

Jim,

Nice chatting with you today....

Jeff is going today to check it out.....
Let me know what he thinks of the car.

"How much to step aside......"

Find me a ride..... rolling frame & body.

Any coin is up to you...

I never look a gift horse in the mouth

Ive been bitten to much


Good Hunting,

Mike
