Imagine hitting the highway with the boys. You’re all ready to race. You feel very confident because you got your little paws behind a Corvette. You’ll be the fastest person on the road. Are you ready? Get set, Go! Today’s classic car is our 1963 Chevrolet Corvette.

Production started for this beauty back in 1963 and ended 4 years later in 1967. This Corvette had a brand new name for its brand new look.

Introducing a new name, "Sting Ray", the 1963 model was the first year for a Corvette coupe and it featured a distinctive tapering rear deck (a feature that reappeared on the 1971 "Boattail" Buick Riviera) with, for 1963 only, a split rear window. The Sting Ray featured hidden headlamps, non-functional hood vents, and an independent rear suspension. Maximum power for 1963 was 360 bhp (270 kW) and was raised to 375 bhp (280 kW) in 1964. Options included electronic ignition, the breakerless magnetic pulse-triggered Delcotronic first offered on some 1963 Pontiac models. On 1964 models the decorative hood vents were eliminated and Duntov got his way with the split rear window changed to a full width window.”
