The 1963 Corvette Sting Ray was a head-turner, drawing inspiration from both a forward-thinking design concept and the natural world. Peter Brock’s 1957 sketches laid the foundation for the car’s stunning bodywork, while General Motors Design Chief Bill Mitchell’s love for marine life added a touch of the extraordinary. Mitchell’s personal Stingray race car, built with Larry Shinoda, was another stepping stone on the path to the production Sting Ray.

The Sting Ray was a runaway success. In 1963, Corvette production soared to a record-breaking 21,513 units, with coupes and convertibles nearly split down the middle. The top-of-the-line option was the L84 fuel-injected 327 cubic inch V8, putting out a thrilling 360 horsepower. This engine found its way into roughly 10% of all 1963 Corvettes.

This particular 1963 Corvette split-window coupe currently available for auction on Bring A Trailer boasts a matching-numbers, fuel-injected 327/360 HP V-8 engine. Its Tuxedo Black exterior complements the black vinyl interior, which benefited from a fresh coat of paint in 2023. This high-performance beauty even made an appearance at the 2023 Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals.

Adding to its allure, the Corvette features classic 15-inch steel wheels with knock-off hubcaps, along with modern upgrades like front disc brakes, concealed headlights, and chrome bumperettes. Inside, power windows, an AM/FM radio, and Sony speakers provide comfort and entertainment for the driver and passenger.
