In 1963 Corvette stepped out with a new and exhilarating look, the Corvette Stingray. Two sparkling new models, both positioning the way to a classic new concept in American sports car design, were introduced this year. The Corvette newcomer, the Stingray, the exciting Sports Coupe, boasted graceful body panels and compound-curved side windows that emphasize the miles-ahead aerodynamic design. Power-operated retractable headlamps rotate out of sight to blend into the unobstructed hood line. Doors extend upward into the roof, adding armchair ease and comfort to sliding in and out. The Corvette Stingray Sports Coupe is taut, fresh, and clean in every detail. The convertible is jauntier than ever in the ’63 vette. Uncluttered lines accented front and rear by trim wrap-around bumpers. The subtle contour of the smoothly molded rear deck, a gleaming aluminium grille, retractable headlamps, and a sweeping hood-length wind split, add to the the appeal of this bold new Corvette.
