1963 Chevy Corvette. This was the first year that the Corvette was offered in a fixed roof coupe style known as the split window coupe because of the signature split rear window that would be unique to 1963 models only. The split window design was not continued the following year due to poor visibility. Other unique body designs of the 1963 Corvette were hidden flip up headlights and no trunk lid. The trunk lid didn’t return until the 1998 convertible.
