With incredible style, brute power and a well appointed interior with power everything the Sting Ray was an instant success.
I have a SWC and am waiting for a restoration!
I owned a 1965 convertible (396/425 4-speed) while a student at Univ of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Had to get an Opel Kadett to drive in the wintertime, because the Corvette had so much power it was dangerous on any slick surface. I believe it had a 38 gallon gas tank! It was a mobile bomb just waiting to be rear-ended, according to my Dad! He made me a roll bar for it! I believe it was the first year for 4-wheel disc brakes.
