The Elkhart Collection’s “split-window” Sting Ray was built in St. Louis in April 1963, finished in the striking and popular Riverside Red, as denoted by its trim tag. The engine number suffix decodes to the 360 bhp engine with high-lift hydraulic camshaft and fuel injection, as presented today. Interested bidders are encouraged to thoroughly inspect said numbers for authenticity. The transmission is the correct four-speed Borg-Warner T-10 wide-ratio gearbox, built on 6 February 1963. Obviously the car was built for performance, as it has manual steering, brakes, and windows—there are very few additional accessories other than what is needed to go very, very fast.

Recipient of a fresh body-off restoration, the Corvette is finished to the current NCRS judging standards, including door jambs done in a flat finish rather than being over-restored. Both the paint and brightwork are simply beautiful down to the windshield frame and the hubcaps, which are in excellent condition. The level of detail throughout extends to all the proper finishes and hardware under the hood, which have the correct and like-new appearance. The window glass is correct Libby-Owens-Ford and unmarked. A Top Flight Award winner in 2015, the Corvette continues to present in excellent condition and includes the NCRS judging sheets and blue ribbon.

Like many of the cars in this collection, this is a sterling example of its type, beautifully and correctly presented to the very highest standards.
