When the 1964 Corvette was released, some GM executives expressed their concerns about the Corvette’s sales numbers might diminished after Ford’s introduction of the Mustang in 1964. Ultimately, the concerns surrounding the Mustang would prove to be unfounded. The 1964 Sting Ray sold a total of 22,229 units, which set another Corvette sales record (though by less than a thousand units over the previous record set just a year earlier in 1963.) Of the units sold, only 8,304 coupes were manufactured. The remaining 13,925 convertibles proved yet again that the Corvette Roadster was still the favorite amongst Corvette consumers.
Fast forward to 2022 and you now have the chance to own a 1964 Corvette Convertible that has been owned by a single family with 29k miles shown. It was refurbished in 1981 that included repainting it in white and reupholstering the cabin in tan leather. The fiberglass body was originally finished in Saddle Tan and has been refinished in white. Features include a removable hardtop and a replacement white convertible soft top as well as flip-up headlamps, fender vents, quad tail lamps, and chrome bumperettes. A side-exit exhaust system has been installed.
The interior features two bucket seats that have been reupholstered in tan leather as well as matching door panels and carpets. Amenities include a heater, an AM/FM radio, an analog clock, power windows, and lap belts. The carpets are also said to have been replaced.
Power is from a 327ci L75 V8 paired with a four-speed manual transmission and has been rated 300 horsepower when new. A leak is noted from the head gasket, and corrosion is present on the valve covers and brake master cylinder.
The car doesn’t come with a title though as it is offered in a state that does not issue titles for vehicles of its age. The car is up for grabs on Bring A Trailer and you can check out the full listing here to learn more details about the car and how to put a bid on it.
