The 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray wasn’t born a legend, it was sculpted from the legacy of a champion. After two decades, Chevrolet aimed to redefine the Corvette with a trio of show-stopping concepts.

The Sting Ray, XP-700, and Mako Shark paved the way for the C2 Corvette, exceeding expectations with its dramatic design and muscle under the hood. It was a sales triumph, but one feature sparked a debate: the split-window rear.

Safety worries and limited visibility led to a short-lived run, with later models adopting a single-piece window. Ironically, the split-window variation has become a prized possession for collectors, with some configurations exceeding $300,000.

Even forgotten examples, like a blue 1963 left undisturbed for over half a century, hold value. Though the fiberglass body resisted rust, this Corvette awaits a complete restoration a reminder of the timeless appeal of the 1963 split-window Sting Ray.

A true survivor is hitting the auction block of a 1967 coupe with a storied past. This once-pristine Saddle Tan Corvette with a matching interior has been through some cosmetic transformations over the years.

Now sporting a light blue paint job and a single-piece rear window, it’s a unique piece of Corvette history that bears the marks of time.

Even the original hood has been swapped for a 1965 version. Despite the changes, this Corvette’s legacy remains, and in the right hands, it could be restored to its former glory.
