The unrestored car was found at the Corvettes of Carlisle show. The car was dissembled and fitted with a Legacy tube chassis. To make things interesting the 63 was treated to a supercharged LS9 crate engine. Power is transmitted to the ground via a Tremec six speed tranny and a Ford nine inch rear.

The car hit the auction block at Mecum and was the hit of the show.  We were fortunate enough to talk to the new owner of the "Window".  The new owner told us that he spends a great deal of his time living the good life in the Florida Keys.
