Red on Black Vinyl... somebody knew what he was doing when ordering this
first-year Sting Ray convertible. Not only does this 1963 Chevrolet Corvette
retain its terrific original color combo, but its also a numbers-matching, four-
speed car that's authentic right down to the four-barrel carb. That's why you
know this C2 is meant for only the best Sting Ray fans.

Riverside Red is an iconic Corvette color, but when this factory-correct paint
has been resprayed with a very professional hand, an already bold car becomes
downright magnetic. This deep finish has a great luster befitting a sunshine-
friendly droptop. But the desire goes beyond the paintwork. Fit and finish of
the fiberglass is in very good condition, the headlights fit flush, the door gaps
are even, and the pleat that surrounds the body is crisp and almost sharp
enough to give you a paper cut. The first-year Sting Ray is for brightwork
lovers with the big bright openings in the hood that would soon disappear.
Plus, everything else on this car shows rather well, including the bumpers,
those ribbed rocker panel moldings, and the unmistakable stylized factory
wheel covers. That's why this '63 can be so impressive all these decades later.

The newer white roof gives this a sunny appearance, but the moment you want
to become the bad boy, all you have to do drop it down to showcase the deep
black interior. The bucket seats, door panels, and dash have a terrific deep and
matching appearance. So not only does it look great from behind the wheel,
but also you look great driving it, too. Just ahead of the three-spoke sports
steering wheel is every gauge you could need all still in perfect working order.
There's even a more modern AM/FM/cassette stereo, but the original steering
wheel and radio come with the sale. That's because a car this authentic should
always be able to satisfy the purists.

Lift the hood, and you'll find a beautifully honest 327 cubic-inch V8. You can
instantly tell this Sting Ray's numbers-matching unit has been properly maintained
and given all the right investments over the years. With the correct Chevy orange
on the block and valve coves, as well as the shiny pie dish air cleaner and ignition
shield, it's a piece you'll enjoy showing off. And speaking of showing off, you
must check out the undercarriage photos that show you how clean every inch
of this car really is. But more than just for presentation, this V8 is the heart of
a great driving package. On the road the motor has the right amount of snarl
through the dual exhaust pipes as you row through all four forward speeds. It's
the kind of sound that's perfect for a little Saturday night intimidation, but it
never gets old when spending all-day Sunday driving the backroads. Plus, with
the fully independent suspension and modern Firestone rubber behind the
classic appearance, this first-year C2 is ready to be driven to all the car shows.
