THE STING-RAY CORVETTE

1964 was an exciting year for Corvette enthusiasts. For the first time, 'America's sports car' was available as a coupe as well as a Roadster. The new Stingray design credited to Bill Mitchell and Pete Brock was a masterpiece-featuring beautifully raised fender peaks and disappearing head-lamps.

Underneath the sleek fiberglass shell, there was a new independent rear axle with transverse leaf springs, control arms, multiple links, double-jointed half-shafts, and trailing radius rods. Even base-model Corvettes were nicely equipped, and buyers had a wide range of engine choices based on the new 327-cubic inch V8. The most powerful option was the 360hp engine with Rochester fuel injection, making this the first American car with a higher horsepower figure than engine displacement. A 3-speed manual transmission was standard, but options included a four-speed manual, a positraction rear end, and a variety of rear axle ratios. The Stingray could be ordered in any of the seven exterior colors offered by Chevrolet. The new Stingray was an impressive performer, capable of 0-60 in 5.9 seconds and 0-100 mph in 16.5. The 1963 Stingray proved a sales hit, and Chevrolet sold 10,594 coupes and 10,919 convertibles.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This particular '64 Corvette was purchased new by noted SCCA racer Bill Jobe in 1964. At the time Bill was living in Dallas, so to help cope with the heat he ordered the car in white with red interior. Jobe campaigned the car on weekends at local autocross events, and he won the Texas regional championship for 5 consecutive years with his faithful daily driver.

After dominating the amateur autocross events in 1969, Bill decided to move up to the SCCA B-Production division. It was during this time that he extensively modified the car. These modifications included fitting a 331 cubic inch fuel injected engine that was built by noted race engine builders Traco engineering. Over the 1970 and 1971 season the car was campaigned extensively, and achieved a phenomenal record. In 26 races, Bill drove the car to fifteen 1st Place, and seven 2nd place finishes, even more astonishing was that Bill never finished lower then 5th place in his Corvette. This amazing record earned Bill the Southeast divisional championship in 1971 and 1972. Since, the car passed through a few other owners.

The consigner purchased the car in 2007. At the time the car had been laid up for twenty years, and It was decided to fully restore it in order to make it track ready. This was a full frame off restoration to bring the car back to the way it raced at Road Atlanta in 1972 and was carried out to the highest level.

The car was recently inspected by a Bonhams Specialist, and is in very good condition. The motor was rebuilt and has less than 5 hours of run time. Included in the sale is a comprehensive history and restoration file. Eligible for vintage race events all over the world, and highly competitive. The opportunity to acquire this historic piece of SCCA history should not be missed.
