When you think of American muscle cars, the last thing you think of is design.

They're typically large, goofy, loud and anything but stylish. They're supposed to be brute-ish.

But the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is an exception to the rule. That's because this American icon featured one very cool little detail — the split rear window. Only done for one model year, it's a highly sought after 'Vette.

Though there's a lot more to like about it, actually. That's because the split rear window is only the beginning of how the 1963 model differs over other model year Stingrays. Watch Jay Leno's Garage, below, and see the extent of the 1963 model year Chevrolet's differentiation in full car geek glory.
