While this is a stellar Sting Ray, what makes this the star of every car show is its engine bay. Every Corvette had a 327 cubic-inch V8 in 1963, but they were far from being equal. Few people were willing to pay for the pricy L84 option that added Rochester fuel injection, which makes this 360 hp Sting Ray a rare member of Corvette royalty. But what makes this motor irresistible is that it’s the exact powerplant this convertible had when it left the St. Louis factory 52 years ago. It only gets better when paired with the Muncie M20 four-speed manual transmission. The power then goes to the optional 3.55 rear end with Positraction, which provides a good mix of fast off the line and calm cruising. It’s these kinds of options that make us hope you’ll drive this Corvette to its fullest.
