1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 “Tanker”

A highly-coveted racer for the road, and one of just 50 known examples combining the Z06 package with the 36-gallon racing fuel tank. Documented history from new, meticulously restored in striking original colors. NCRS Top Flight, Bloomington Gold, and Gold Spinner award winner. An iconic American sports car and the ultimate collectible Corvette.

Presented in its original color scheme of Riverside Red over black upholstery, this 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe is one of the coveted Z06 factory road-racers equipped with the ultra-rare “Big Tank” high-capacity fuel system. The handful of buyers who selected the Z06 package could add the 36-gallon endurance-racing fuel tank as a separate option. Initially, it was only available on the Z06 but was later offered across the range – meaning not all Z06s are “tankers,” and vice versa. Out of an annual sales total of over 21,000 Corvettes, just 78 buyers (some reports say only 63) ticked the option sheet for both the Z06 Performance Equipment Group and the N03 36-gallon racing fuel tank. Today, approximately 50 Z06s tankers are known, and they are among the most desirable of all road-going C2 ‘Vettes.
