THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Debuted in 1962, featuring sleek lines derived from Mitchell's racer and refined by Shinoda, the new Corvette Sting Ray was a serious sports car riding on a shorter wheelbase than before with independent rear suspension developed under Zora Arkus-Duntov. Four 327 cubic-inch engines were available for 1963, ranging from the basic 250-hp unit to the 300-hp L75, 340-hp L76 and L84 "Fuelie." Essentially the L84 with a four-barrel carburetor, the far less-expensive L76 was more easily tuned and maintained than the vaunted "Fuelie." Further development saw the hot L76 bumped up to 365 factory-rated horsepower for 1964, with the Corvette's styling cleaner and pleasingly refined.

Powered by the hot optional 365-horsepower L76 engine mated to a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission, this 1964 Corvette Convertible is accompanied by a window sticker copy listing factory options. Following assembly, it was delivered new to Placke Chevrolet of St. Louis, Missouri, the home city of Chevrolet's original Corvette assembly plant. Finished in Riverside Red over Red upholstery, it was factory-equipped with a G81 Positraction rear axle with 3.70:1 ring and pinion, P48 "knock off" wheels, U69 pushbutton AM/FM radio, C07 auxiliary hard top, C05 White convertible top and 6.70x15 White sidewall tires. A solid original car, it was given a frame-off restoration and features correct Red lacquer paint, Red leather seats and date-coded glass. It retains the matching numbers L76 327/365 engine, 4-speed transmission and features such fine details and correct features including the alternator, ignition shielding, intake manifold, carburetor, shifter, gauges, glovebox door, seat belts, exhaust manifolds and the original radio, plus upgraded four-wheel disc brakes. A gorgeous second-generation Corvette Convertible in desirable high-performance specification, this example comes from a noted collection of landmark automobiles and is sure to please.
