1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray

To even the casual observer, the 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray is a sleek looking sports car. Its impact has only grown since the year it rolled off the line. 
The 1963 Corvette featured an all-new body style that was inspired by a racing model built by General Motors design master Bill Mitchell. The styling was a big hit from the first moment and grew to legendary status ever since. The angular body with minimal bright work also included a distinctive split-rear window on the coupe version, although that option only was offered that first production year. About 21,000 cars would be built in 1963 model year, a 50-percent spike over the record-setting 1962 version. Its base price was $4,037.
 The 1963 Sting Ray production car’s lineage can be traced to two GM projects: the Q-Corvette that started in 1957 and the Mitchell racing team’s Sting Ray design. 
The LeMay Collection’s 1963 “Split-Window” is Daytona Blue in color, and is powered by the 300 horsepower engine. This particular car was used for an on-track event with NASCAR driver Jeff Jefferson behind the wheel.
