Corvette debuted a radical new fastback for 1963 with a design that drew heavily upon two stunning General Motors concept cars – Zora Arkus-Duntov’s 1957 Q-Corvette and Bill Mitchell’s 1959 Stingray Racer designed by Peter Brock. The new Corvette’s fantastic styling was just the beginning of this revolutionary car. Derived from lessons learned on the track, Arkus-Duntov designed an all-new chassis for sharper steering and better weight distribution, with a shorter wheelbase and independent rear suspension. The automotive press celebrated the 1963 Corvette’s improved traction, handling ability, and the 327 engine’s power. This 1967 model benefits from four additional years of design refinements, such as evolutionary styling changes, additional suspension improvements, and four-wheel disc brakes.
This wonderful, low-mileage Corvette Coupe is finished in vibrant Rally Red paint with a matching interior. Though its early provenance is unknown, it was purchased in 1986 by Skip Marketti, curator of the fabled Nethercutt Collection, who has lovingly cared for it for nearly 30 years. Carefully preserved, it is a largely original example with a meticulous repaint completed in 2005. The interior remains largely original, with only the carpets, door panels, and the headliner changed.
Enthusiasts seeking a well-preserved and beautifully presented second-generation Corvette would be strongly advised to consider this desirable example.
