Tales of the creation of the 1963 Corvette are both legion and legend. Seductive aerodynamic design by Bill Mitchell and Larry Shinoda, incorporating innovative rotating headlights, was mounted upon a thoroughly redesigned chassis, featuring Corvette’s inaugural four-wheel independent suspension, developed by the talented Zora Arkus Duntov, and powerful 327 cu-in V8 engines in multiple states of performance tune with the most exciting of these being the “L84” option 360 horsepower engine with Rochester Ramjet mechanical fuel injection. The result was a Corvette that really was truly new, and which was engineered from top to bottom to become the world-beating sports car that Arkus Duntov, later renowned as the “Father of the Corvette,” had always known it could be.

This was the first production Corvette sold as a coupe, an idea that had been explored since the model’s earliest days but had never been fully realized; now it was, and to many eyes, the coupe was every bit as rakish as the roadster counterpart. In a stylistic victory, Mitchell successfully argued for the spine splitting the rear window. A design flourish of considerable beauty, the “split window” would last only one year but made the original Sting Ray coupe both unique and unforgettable for future generations.

This car is part of the George Foreman Collection, which comprises over 50 cars from the 1930s through today, with a focus on American classics and late-model sports cars.

Known Imperfections

  • Please note that this lot is offered in non-running condition after being stored without operation in a climate-controlled facility for at least 10 years. As a result, it will benefit from additional mechanical attention before being driven to address any imperfections associated with long-term storage or individual preferences. Bidders are encouraged to review the Additional Documents section of each lot for any recent mechanical service rendered to help return certain vehicles to running condition. Additionally, bidders should carefully review the photos of each lot in the collection, which may highlight the oxidation of metal components certain vehicles sustained as the result of a garage fire caused by a golf cart battery in March 2019. Although none of the vehicles sustained fire damage from the fire itself, the negative cosmetic effects of the corrosive soot vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle and can be observed in the photo

  • Fuel injection system fuel delivery issues

  • Extensive paint bubbling on the front hood

  • Paint chips on the driver’s rear quarter panel

  • Paint crazing near driver’s side headlight

  • Pitting and corrosion on exterior and interior metallic surfaces
