BODYWORK/TRIM

A jaw-dropping classic that was long ago separated from its original drivetrain, this stunning Sting Ray is the product of a documented, ground-up restoration that was extremely thorough and exceptionally detailed. That rebuild is capped by a smooth and solid body, which hides gauged panel gaps under glossy PPG Fisker Silver tri-stage. That display opens with tucked bumpers, which reflect a stainless grille and bullet-style parking lamps. Above that grille, a shaved header panel fronts a ’63-exclusive hood, which leads the eye past matte wipers to stainless-trimmed glass. At the sides of that hood, a sinuous profile hangs familiar bowtie mirrors between shaved fenders, rowdy side-pipes and traditional door handles. And at the back of that profile, a subtle fuel filler rides a shaved deck, which shades a chrome tag frame, monochromatic taillights and two more tucked bumpers.

ENGINE

This split-window’s top-notch restoration is built around a stout, 6.2 liter LSA V8 that, based on GM’s award-winning Generation IV small block, utilizes an internally polished Lingenfelter supercharger to twist 556 horsepower into 551 lb./ft. of earth-moving torque! Dressed in a custom shroud, and seated in a custom, fully finished bay, the big engine shows surprisingly well. At the front of that shroud, a quality Concept One accessory drive spins modern power steering, a polished alternator and a coated AC compressor beneath custom air induction. In front of those ancillaries, a C&R Racing radiator sports dual SPAL cooling fans. Speaking of cooling, there’s a requisite water-to-air intercooler. Fires are sparked by familiar AC Delco plug wires. Exhaust exits through Jet Hot-coated LSA manifolds. And details are on point, with a familiar Wilwood master cylinder complementing trick hydro-dipped texturing that gives the car’s valve covers and supercharger a slick, carbon fiber appearance.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Park this pro-tourer on a lift and you’ll find a spotless undercarriage that’s prepped, primed and ready to roar. A Centerforce dual-disc clutch kicks a Tremec T56 Magnum 6-speed, which turns a fifth-generation Camaro differential that’s finished with 3.42 gears. That world-class driveline is an integral part of a custom-fabricated chassis, built from 2×4 boxed tubing, which hangs QA-1 coli-overs and Speedway Engineering sway bars inside a sixth-generation Corvette Z06 suspension. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to sixth-generation Corvette Z06 calipers, which utilize six pistons up front and four pistons out back to squeeze four drilled rotors. Naturally, the aforementioned power steering fuels a modern rack-and-pinion set-up. And the sixth-generation Corvette theme continues with chromed Z06 wheels throwing torque through two 275/35ZR18 Nitto Invos and two 325/30ZR19 Nitto Invos.

INTERIOR

Pop the lightweight doors and you’ll find a tastefully tweaked interior that continues this Sting Ray’s striking visuals. Front and center, shortened sixth-generation Corvette buckets sport custom leather hides. In front of those seats, a leather-wrapped dash hangs custom-seated Auto Meter telemetry and colorful Dual audio above custom-integrated Vintage Air climate control. At the center of that trifecta, a hand-built console anchors buttons for Nu Relics power windows behind a booted shifter. In front of the driver, a D-shaped Billet Specialties wheel laps a tilting Flaming River column. And behind the passengers, a big Kicker amp jolts a big Kicker sub and dual Kenwood speakers.
