General Motors designer Harley Earl is credited with convincing GM to build a two-seat sports car for the American market. Launched in 1953, the resulting Chevrolet Corvette quickly earned the mantle of “America’s Sports Car” and the model is still produced today. 1964 was the second year of the Corvette “Stingray” and second year for the C2 generation of cars. Subtle changes were made to that year including deleting the faux hood vents, adding more sound insulation, revised transmission mounts and the introduction of the fabled 4 speed Muncie manual transmission.
Finished in its original gorgeous Daytona Blue with white convertible top, the car has a strong street presence with its scooped hood, side exhausts, redline tyres and knockoff wheels.
This tough 1964 Corvette Stingray sports its original numbers matching 327 cubic inch (300 HP) block and numbers matching transmission.
The interior is immaculate and the car retains its original wooden steering wheel. This car has a Corvette engine dress up kit including aluminium radiator, chrome rocker covers and air cleaner.
