Convertible
One of the Last 1963 Sting Rays Built
The Chevrolet Corvette first appeared as a concept car, as part of the General Motors Motorama display that traveled across the country in the early 1950s. The response from the public prompted GM to release the Corvette as a limited-production sports cars in the 1953 model year.

The 1963 Corvette String Ray was inspired directly from GM Styling Chief Bill Mitchell's 1959 concept car, the Sting Ray racer. Available in both coupe and convertible models, the 1963 Corvette featured hidden headlamps, peaked fender lines and a dramatic 'dual-cove' instrument panel. At the same time, Zora Arkus-Duntov, Corvette's engineer, had his staff create a totally new chassis with a four-wheel independent suspension.

The Sebring Silver String Ray displayed here was built during the last week of 1963 Corvette production. It was ordered with performance options, including the 360-hp, 327 V8 with Ramjet Fuel Injection, four-speed manual transmission and the ultra-rare two-bar knock-off aluminum wheels.
