Evolution of the Corvette
Corvette C2 (1963-1967)
The C2 generation is where the Corvette brand established itself as a technological leader. Corvettes received independent rear suspension years in advance of any other domestic production model. Chevrolet had tried fuel injection in the C1 era, but the fuel injected C2 Sting Ray models (immortalized in the song Shut Down by the Beach Boys) were technology and performance leaders of the day. Notable models include the 1963 coupe (pictured), the ultra-rare Grand Sport and the 450hp L88.
