The Model: If during the 1960s you were in the USA and between the ages of 10 to 80, and you weren’t crazy about cars, well buddy, there was just no hope for you, especially if you didn’t drool over the Corvette Stingray! With its aerodynamic profile, the wedge front with hide-away headlights, and fastback styling, these cars looked like they could slice through the air like a contemporary fighter jet. For 1964 a number of refinements were applied such as the one-piece rear glass improving visibility to the rear, and for the coupes a fan was added to help ventilation, channeling air through functional outlets behind the driver’s seat. Minor trim changes saw a simulated wood-grain steering wheel as standard equipment, and a growing list of accessories were also offered. Corvette production rose by nearly 1,000 units over 1963, with impressive performance and the best looks ever on an American sports car, it was a status symbol one could be proud of.


The Car: Finished in its original color of Ermine White, this Stingray coupe has all that you could ever hope for. Under the hood sits the numbers matching block, with all components, such as the chrome air cleaner and finned aluminum valve covers, correctly detailed. Looking inside the car you will find the original AM-FM radio, full instrumentation, and those comfortable bucket seats, which were thicker and more comfortable than in the previous season. This Corvette remained with the same owner from 1969 until recently when it was acquired by our consignor. Included with the purchase is the car’s original window sticker, sales contract, owner’s manual and instruction booklet for the radio. At a cost of $53.80 over the base engine, the L75, 300 HP version of the 327 was the most popular selection for Corvette buyers this season with 10,471 opting for this choice. This car has never been judged by the NCRS, and may very well qualify for honors reserved only for the best of the breed, a survivor Corvette!
