THE STING-RAY CORVETTE

1963 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, 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 or-dered in any of seven exterior colors. 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

Chevrolet's second generation 'C2' Corvettes, especially the first-year, with the optional fuel injected 327 V8 engine, are among the most collectible of GM's Corvette model-range. While this example lacks such creature comforts as power brakes and steering or even air conditioning, the combination of a high output motor- with little resistance from the lack of accessories- with the 4-speed manual make for quite the stripped-down sporting combination.

The restoration conducted on the vehicle has resulted in the a quite tidy package all around. A subdued combination of Silver over black further enhances the no-nonsense sporting nature of the vehicle. The exterior shows with lustrous chrome, and under the hood presents with equal care and attention to detail.

An enduring icon of Americana, the C2 Corvette, specifically in fuel-injected, split window guise, makes for both and endlessly stylish and thrilling sports car. A well sorted example such as this is sure to find a new enthusiastic owner ready for spirited weekend drives.
