Fortunately, the Stingray has been rescued and is going to a good home.
There is a saying that one man's trash is another man's treasure. In this case, a Chevrolet Corvette Z06 split window found in a junkyard in 1963 that melted in a junkyard was apparently junk to one person, but worth a fortune to many more. The split rear window on the C2 Corvettes was only made for model year 63 and has become one of the most sought-after features on the market. In addition, it is a Z06, which is twice as attractive for the most sought-after generation of the American sports car.

This incredible rough diamond caught the attention of Instagram account Rottingclassics and has been among other vehicle shells since 1971. It's hard to imagine why someone would just throw away such a rare classic, considering that few were made. The most obvious answer was that the owner didn't really know what he had on his hands. What's even more remarkable is that the Vette stayed in the junkyard for almost 50 years.

1963 was not only the first year of production for the second-generation Corvette or C2, it also brought the hugely popular Stingray body onto the market. This was also the first official year GM offered the Z06. Only 199 were handed over to customers. These cars were made for those who wanted to hit the track and possibly race. The equipment features of the Z06 package that have proven themselves in motorsport included high-performance suspension, large cooled disc brakes and a 36.5-gallon fuel tank.

What really made the '63 C2 Corvette Z06 so phenomenal was the 327 Small Block V8 that produced 360 horsepower and 352 lb.-ft. of the torque. It really helped to announce that the new Vette was a serious contender on the road and on the track.
Not only did rotten classics draw attention to this valuable split 63 C2 Corvette window, the car is now being fully restored. Given its rather sad shape, the process will be tedious, but we hope to take a look at the finished product.
