THE 'STING RAY' CORVETTE

"The Sting Ray hit the American sports car market like a thunderclap, reminiscent of the knock-'em-dead debut of the Jaguar E-Type two years previously; comparisons were not slow to materialize. For the first time in history the Corvette was a sell-out success." Richard M Langworth, The Complete Book Of The Corvette.

To say that the Sting Ray's arrival caused a sensation would be grossly understating its impact on the North American sports car market. Indeed, such was its runaway success that the St Louis factory hired a second shift but still could not build cars fast enough to meet demand. Styled in General Motors' Art and Colour Studio under Bill Mitchell, the new Corvette featured radical styling pioneered on Mitchell's successful Stingray sports-racer, and for the first time there was a Gran Turismo Coupe in the range. Beneath the skin was an all-new ladder-frame chassis with independent rear suspension, the adoption of which enabled the center of gravity to be significantly lowered, improving both handling and ride. This new frame was the work of Corvette Chief Engineer, Zora Arkus-Duntov who said, "For the first time I have a Corvette which I am proud to use in Europe."

As had been the case with the previous (1956-62) generation of Corvettes, development proceeded slowly, being characterized by annual facelifts and few engineering changes of note. On the latter front, the long-overdue arrival of four-wheel disc brakes was the most significant development for 1965 while Chevrolet's 327ci (5.4-liter) 250bhp standard V8 was joined by an optional 396ci (6.5-liter) Big Block for '65 only, then a '427' until the end of Sting Ray production in 1967. Now recognized as representing a 'golden age' for the Corvette, the Sting Ray version was manufactured from 1963 to 1967 and has since gone on to become a highly collectible classic car.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The final model year of the C2 Corvette features a number of small changes that add up to the most refined design of that generation. Most of the exterior trim had been removed from the body, the flank vents now came with 5 vents, and the rocker panels now had a flat finish. This Ermine White example is finished with a saddle interior. Options in include the top spec Turbo-Jet big block motor fitted with the 435 horsepower 3x2 carburetor system. Inside, the dashboard is clutter free thanks to a lack of a radio, and power is fed to the rear wheels through a M20 4-speed manual transmission.

The Corvette shows in good overall condition. The vehicle was repainted in 2013 and has some minor flaws present but still possess a nice glossy finish. The body is free from any damage and the panel fitment is in line with how the vehicle would've left its assembly plant in period. Inside, the upholstery shows in very good shape. Mechanically, the Corvette had its carbs rebuilt this year with a new fuel pump and the brakes received a new master cylinder previously. Further, the transmission was rebuilt by A1 transmissions in Denver.

The 1967 Corvette is the most refined of the C2 generation, and this 427ci powered example will surely be a thrill for its next owner.
