CHOOSE YOUR CORVETTE C2
All-new Corvette C2 launched in September 1962 in convertible and fastback coupé forms. Its difference was marked by adding Sting Ray to the name. Underneath the Bill Mitchell styling was a new chassis with vastly improved suspension, but the engines remained the same – a 327ci (5.4-litre) V8 offered in four states of tune from 250bhp to a fuel-injected 360bhp.
For 1964 the coupé lost its split rear window and power output crept up. The small-block V8 was joined by a big-block 396ci (6.5-litre) option for 1965, offering 425bhp. The following year this grew to 427ci (6997cc), with peak power coming from the 425bhp LT1 option in 1967.
C2 Corvette was replaced after just five years in production; 117,966 Sting Rays had been built.
