The 1964 Chevy Corvette was greeted with as much enthusiasm as its 1963 counterpart had been the year before. With the monumental success that Chevrolet had experienced after the introduction of its second-generation Corvette Sting Ray. GM executives understood that the C2‘s sophomore year would require little more than continued refinement to the already intensely popular sports car to maintain its success. 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.
