Milestones of the Corvette "Sting Ray" Generation
Here is the second video installment from the Corvette Time Line at Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise that honors the significant milestones during Corvette’s 60 years of production. Corvette’s Product Marketing Manager Harlan Charles is once again your host as he takes you back to Corvette’s second generation – 1963 to 1967.
The “Sting Ray” generation was championed by GM’s second vice president of design, Bill Mitchell, after observing the way stingrays swim so gracefully through the water. This is also the generation that Zora Arkus-Duntov’s engineering team pushed Corvette performance to new heights.
Although the “mid-years” were the shortest of the six Corvette generations, fans will undoubtedly remember its defining features, such as the split-window on the 1963 Corvette and the introduction of the 427 cubic inch big block V8 engine.
