Chevrolet Corvette C2 Sting Ray buying guide (1962-1967)

Chevrolet Corvette C2 Sting Ray buying guide (1962-1967) Classic and Performance Car
To many enthusiasts, only one truly credible sports car has ever come out of America, and that’s the Corvette. It’s not for us to say whether or not this is true (okay – it isn’t), but what we do know is that the Corvette is one of the most desirable classics around, for a whole raft of reasons.

Firstly there are those sensational looks; you’re not going to confuse the Corvette for anything else. Then there’s the performance; with all Corvettes packing V8 power, all variants are fast. But what swings it for many owners is the noise; at full chat a Corvette sets your spine tingling in the way that only an American V8 can.

There’s another aspect which isn’t immediately obvious, and that’s the Corvette’s size. While most American cars are generously proportioned – which can make garaging a problem here in the UK – the Corvette is no bigger than many contemporary European classics. As a result it’s more fun to drive, easier to store, but still plenty big enough for two.

Which one to buy?

There’s a bewildering array of Corvettes to choose from, because as well as coupé and convertible bodystyles there are model year changes to contend with along with colours, options and a slew of specifications too. There are also manual and automatic gearboxes; most Corvettes feature the former. As a result, no two Corvettes are identical.

Only you can decide whether you want an open car or a closed one and you’ll have your colour preferences too. When it comes to specifications, there were 5359cc V8s offered for the whole of C2 production (offering anywhere between 250bhp and 375bhp), while there were 6489cc and 6997cc V8s offered in later years. These big-block cars are now very collectible but the rarer, more collectible editions are easily faked, so tread carefully.

One of the real rarities from this generation of Corvette is the fuel-injected 377bhp Grand Sports. Just five were made in 1963, with twin-plug heads and an all-alloy small-block V8. Other than that, the 1963 split-window coupé is the holy grail of Sting Ray collectors, especially in Z06 form. The reality is that it’ll be a question of tracking down a really good car and buying it – your focus should be on condition rather than specification.

Common problems

• The Corvette’s glassfibre bodyshell is well-made but not always well-repaired during restoration or after an accident. So check for cracks and crazing, poorly blended in panels and paint that’s sunk, betraying poor preparation.

• The chassis is also well-made, but it does corrode and it can also be distorted through crash damage. Check in front of the rear wheelarch where the chassis kicks up, the base of the front suspension turrets and the lower wishbone mountings.

• Also check the radiator support frame along with the body support frame, which extends up each door pillar, around each door and across the bulkhead.

• The small-block V8 fitted to most Corvettes is tough, simple and cheaply rebuilt. You can even buy a new engine if you need one but if you’re a slave to originality beware of engine swaps, which aren’t unusual.

• A small-block V8 will take a couple of rebores before it’s had it and even when in good condition a bit of smoke on starting up should be expected. Once the valve stem seals have hardened with age though, expect more smoke – and a rebuild.

• Don’t be too keen to buy a Corvette with a big-block V8 as they’re over-burdened with power, cost a lot more to rebuild and you’ll pay a big premium to buy one in the first place.

• The Sting Ray was initially fitted with a three-speed manual gearbox as standard but most cars feature a four-speed unit. There was an auto offered too (a two-speed Powerglide), but these are unusual and not sought after. All gearboxes last well, but if a rebuild is needed the parts are available and the costs aren’t exorbitant.

• The suspension is durable but the bottom wishbones wear out; they’re cheaply and easily replaced though. Be wary of cars that have been fitted with stiffer suspension as this wrecks the dynamics and the chassis isn’t really strong enough to cope with the extra stress.

• The all-drum system of the earlier cars works fine unless you’re driving the car really hard. The all-disc system from 1965 is even better, but it seizes up on cars that are driven sparingly – although fixing this isn’t a difficult job.

Model history

1963: The Corvette C2 is launched in September with all-new styling, a new ladder-type chassis, independent rear suspension and an alternator. Power steering and air-con are optional extras, while power comes from a 327ci (5359cc) V8 in 250, 300, 340 and 360bhp forms. The most powerful cars feature Rochester fuel injection.
1964: There’s now less brightwork fitted, the coupé loses its split rear window, knock-off alloy wheels become optional and the Borg Warner manual gearbox is replaced by a GM-built Muncie unit.
1965: Side exhausts are now optional, comfier seats are fitted and a 425bhp 396ci (6489cc) big-block V8 is now offered. Ventilated discs replace the all-drum system previously fitted. A servo is also optional from here.
1966: Engine options are now 327ci (5359cc) 300 or 350bhp along with 427ci (6997cc) 390 or 425bhp.
1967: There are wider wheels, including optional bolt-on alloys, and reversing lights are added above the number plate.

Summary and prices

As there are so many different types of C2 Corvette, it’s sometimes difficult to put a value on them. In the UK you can spend between £10,000 for a project, to over £60,000 for a mint example. Split screen rear window cars can carry a 20 per cent premium, while the fuel injected and big-block 6.5-litre cars could be 30-50 per cent premium.

  • 1965 Chevrolet Corvette


    1965 Chevrolet Corvette VIN: 194375S112309 Built by Chevrolet on March, 13th 1965, this Sting Ray was sold new on April 1st 1965 at Brackin Chevrolet in Linderwood, North Dakota to Donald M. Wohlwend of Seattle, Washington. It was ordered in rally red paint with the 350 hp V8 engine, 4-speed manual transmission, telescopic steering wheel, positraction axle 370R, quick take off wheels, inside no-glare mirror, back up lamps, am/fm radio, and transistor ignition. All these options would raise the cost of the Coupe from the base price of $4321.00 to a final sticker number of $5,423.70. The Corvette would spend the next few decades in the care of Mr. Wohlwend in Seattle. He kept all of the original sales paper work, registrations from 1965-1987, window sticker, protect-o-plate, even his original Sting Ray brochure and gas receipt from the '60s-'70s. From the condition of these records, and of the car itself we can safely assume Mr. Wohlwend was a meticulous type of person when it came to his cars. After his long-term ownership the Corvette was in the possession of a couple of collectors in Washington State who safely guarded the car's originality and condition. The January 1965 issue of

    1963 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Split Window Coupe s/n 30837S 109331, Engine no 3109331 F020IRF Sebring Silver with Black Interior Design excellence and racing prowess vaulted the Corvette into the pantheon of great American cars many years ago. Today, the best of these great cars continue to be sought after. Even among the finest European cars of the 60s, the all-new 1963 Corvette set a high standard for performance excellence at a reasonable price. Having distinguished itself at the track and on the road, the new 63 Stingray was a stunning revelation of design and performance. Captured initially by the youthful Pete Brock and refined by Corvette designer Larry Shinoda, the 63 split window was a phenomenal visual achievement. But Chevrolet was not satisfied to simply offer their customers great looking performance cars. Enter performance legend Zora Arkus Duntov with his clever directives circumventing corporate distaste for racing by building option packages for cars with racing in mind - among them the now iconic Z06 package. The 1963 Corvette Z06 Special Performance Equipment Package with the Endurance Racing Fuel tank is among the most desirable performance sports cars ever built.

    (SOLD) This spectacular two owner car is a California black plates car with matching numbers. This is a factory roadster with hard-top only. The car was in storage for many years, and ten years ago it was purchased by the second owner. Ten years ago the second owner took the car to a well-known Corvette expert in North County San Diego who serviced all the systems and rebuilt and replaced as needed. During this process, the Stingray benefited from a new repaint, new seat covers, serviced instruments, and had the bright work re-chromed as needed, with the goal of keeping the car as authentic and original as possible. It comes with factory hubcaps, a Delco AM/FM radio, and the factory hardtop. The hard top is going to need restoration, but it has been repainted body color. The soft top bows and tops are readily available if so desired. We believe the miles to be original from the overall condition of the car. The second owner had known this car since the first owner purchased it and believe it’s original. Here is a great opportunity to have a great Corvette that’s a high end driver with good history.

    In the late 1950s, California-based hot rod shop Barris Kustoms was beginning to make waves in the custom car world. George Barris had been tweaking, customizing and restyling cars since early in the decade. After moving to Los Angeles to start his own shop, George and his brother Sam pioneered many of the techniques and styles that set the standard for the hot rodding world in the coming years. Along with other pro builders like Ed Roth, Dean Jeffries, Gene Winfield, the Barris Brothers helped to establish hot-rodding in mainstream American culture. Barris had been building cars for private clients since his high-school days. By the time Barris Kustoms was in full swing, they were getting commissions from television and film stars, musicians and Hollywood studios. In the mid-1960s, George was approached by Accessories International to build them a promotional vehicle that would be a show stopper used to highlight their parts. Accessories International supplied various bolt-on accessories such as wheel spinners, regulator covers and valve-cover dress up kits. Many Accessories International parts were sold with Barris Kustoms branding. For their promotional vehicle, they chose a 1958 Corvette that was purchased new by the company and handed it over to Barris to work his magic. George set to work heavily modifying the Corvette, using Bill Mitchell’s XP 700 as a source of inspiration. The GM XP 700 was a 1958 Corvette that was reworked by Mitchell (the Head of GM Styling from 1958-1977) as a GM Dream Car, which he also used as a daily driver for the first year of its life. The XP 700 had a pronounced, extended grille and double-headlight pods in the front, deeply sculpted side coves and lots of sweeps highlighted by crisp feature lines. It was revised in 1959, when Mitchell added a plexiglass bubble top that had been sprayed with vaporized aluminum to reflect the heat of the sun. The XP 700 was pilfered to make the XP 755 “Mako Shark” in 1961 which still survives to this day, though the XP 700 body has long since been destroyed. For Barris’ work on the Accessories International Corvette, he began with a dramatic restyling of the front end, extending the quad headlights outward on more pronounced “pods”. The grille drew directly from the XP 700, featuring a dramatic oval shaped affair with integrated side scoops. An additional hood scoop fed air to the carburetor, and the signature 1958 ‘Vette hood louvers and trim were smoothed out. In the rear, the heavy chrome trim was removed and smoothed, and sharp pronounced Jet Age fins were grafted to the tops of the quarters. A 1958 Impala roof vent was grafted into the hard top. The car was then painted in a lurid blue with silver coves and a silver painted hard top, again mimicking the aluminum-hued Plexiglas top on the original XP 700. It was then fitted with the whole range of Accessories International parts, from the wheels on up, and was soon touring the country, as the poster-child for AI accessories at custom car shows, trade shows and other special events. Today, the Barris Kustoms 1958 Corvette presents in very good condition with the original Barris modifications and AI parts still largely intact. It is a super cool and highly authentic period piece, down to the AAA whitewall bias ply tires mounted on genuine Ansen magnesium wheels outfitted with Accessories International spinners. The drivetrain consists of a 1960’s period 327/four-barrel mated to a four-speed manual ‘box with Hurst shifter. The cabin is also highly original, with black upholstered seats and a period wood-rimmed Grant steering wheel. All in, this is an interesting and totally unique piece of Kustom Car history that presents in very original, very well-preserved condition. Genuine Barris Kustoms cars are highly collectible pieces of Americana, and this particular car’s unique history and array of period parts add yet more layers of desirability. This 1958 Corvette is sure to be a hit at vintage hot-rod events, Good Guys cruises or any gathering of Kustom Kulture enthusiasts.

    The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette was a completely new design, and had nothing to do with the previous versions. It came with independent rear suspension, and a range of 327 ci. V8 engines offering from 250 bhp up to 360 bhp for the fuel injected version. The car was available with 3-speed and 4-speed manual gearboxes, and of course a powerglide automatic gearbox. Two body versions were available : a coupé version with the (MY1963 only) split rear window and a roadster version. Total production for MY1963 was 21.513 units (10.594 Coupés, 10.919 Convertibles), which makes it quite a rare car. This example was imported from California in 2010 in restored condition. It is finished in its original colour combination of Ermine White (colour code 936A) with Saddle leather seats (trim code 898F) and a beige softtop (code BG). The car has some desirable factory options : 4-speed gearbox, original hardtop and beautiful cast aluminium knock-off wheels. It looks and sounds gorgeous, and is a pleasure to drive. The Corvette has a Belgian registration, and has just received a full service including brake overhaul. A Corvette from 1963 is an American design icon, and a sought after classic sportscar w
