Best Corvette ever: 1963 Corvette Fuel-Injected Coupe This vehicle is top dog among the 'Vette set primarily because of great exterior styling. "We feel this is the most beautiful Corvette of all time," Oldham says. The model boasts the first use of Corvette's legendary "Stingray" design, as well as the only split rear windshield the brand has ever offered. The '63 Corvette also had cutting-edge mechanical features such as optional fuel injection, a system virtually unheard of at the time because most cars used carburetors. "Fuel-injected Corvettes were the quickest and most-powerful cars ever from GM at the time," Oldham says. "They ruled the street in 1963."
