With the Jaguar E-Type and Ferrari 250 garnering the bulk of attention from the motoring press, Chevrolet responded with a complete overhaul of the Corvette that was dubbed the Sting Ray. Produced from 1963 to 1967 as both a roadster and coupe, it was smaller, more powerful, and wore a futuristic fiberglass body penned by Larry Shinoda. To improve road holding and ride quality, Chief Engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov ordered development of an all-new ladder-frame chassis with an independent rear suspension that allowed it to compete with the best sports cars from Europe. The end for the C2 arrived in 1967, but the successful second generation would leave on a high note with a freshened styling that made it a sleeker package overall. Five slots appeared in the fenders and Big Block cars bore a contrasting colour stinger on the hood, hitting of the potency that lay underneath. As the last representative of a vaunted line, the final year of the C2 Corvette is a blue chip collectible that is certain to continue appreciating in value.
