Pininfarina has made some special cars over the time, and this 1963 Corvette is no exception. Being the only Vette to have a steel body, this vehicle has spent most of its time in the museum.
After being auctioned off for the first time in 2008 for only 1.76 million USD, the 1963 Corvette is now looking for a new owner.
Pininfarina built the Chevrolet Corvette as a showpiece for the 1963 Paris Auto Show, and the full name is the Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Speciale Rondine. Based on the C2 chassis, the Corvette Rondine sports a 5.4 liter fuel injected V8 engine managing 360 Hp. A four speed manual gear box sends all the power to the rear wheels.
Come August 23-25, you will have a chance at this wonderful vehicle, as the Chevrolet Corvette Coupe Speciale Rondine will be auctioned off in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. Keep in mind what makes this unique vehicle valuable: it’s a Pininfarina creation, it is the only Corvette who has a steel body instead of a traditional fiberglass, and it has spent most of its life in a museum.
