Not to be snarky, but I'd suggest buying a LM (65-69) Corvair. Improved HP and handling.

I do like the EM (60-64) Corviars as much as the LM cars, but the only model year of EM I would consider is the 1964. Longer stroke engine, improved clutch, revised swing axle rear suspension (that finally cured the "the tail happy antics" of the old suspension), and a bigger STANDARD front sway bar.

Don't get me wrong, the 63 Corvair is a fine car for "normal" driving, but YOU asked about handling and power upgrades.
