Complex Says: The 1963 C2 is easily the most iconic body style of the Corvette. The C2 Corvette. People obsess over the split window because it's unusual, striking, and now, quite rare. GM made the C2 with the split window only for a single year. The new Corvette didn't initially get any more power than the previous generation, but it did lose some weight and gain independent rear suspension. As a result, it did accelerate faster than the C1, and it handled a lot better as well.
