Because a red Corvette convertible is what we all love, this one is fantastically rosy inside and out. But more than just looks, this 1964 Chevrolet Corvette convertible has that perfect mix of V8 rumble and four-speed control that makes every outing an experience.
This car is a true iconic American. A red Sting Ray gives every one of us the fantasy of cruising a car hop for late night burgers, and then parting the midnight air with the sounds of breaking in fresh asphalt. And ’64 is one of the most desirable body styles. It has some great trim that was not available on later years, proper four taillight design, and a distinct and aggressive hood. But more than just year-specific details, the paint and bodywork on this example reminds you that there was careful ownership all its life. The brightwork is mirror-like and the knock-off style wheels are iconic. And while the folding roof neatly stores away under the hard boot, this one even looks good with the top up thanks to the fresh black top.
Open the door, and it feels like 1964 all over again. There’s a sea of red on the carpets, vinyl bucket seats, and dash. Just about the only thing that breaks up this festival of scarlet is the grippy three-spoke steering wheel that is truly worthy of a vintage sports car. The rest of the interior is factory-correct from the AM/FM radio to the heat/defrost controls... even the clock is still ticking away. It’s easy to settle into this sports car with comfortable bucket seats, a center console, and a full set of gauges that love to dance while you row through the gears.
Open the hood, and you’re greeted to a great shine on the air grabber, valve covers, and ignition shield. And beyond the style is the substance of a strong 327 cubic-inch V8. This small block has been enhanced with an Edelbrock performance intake and four-barrel carburetor. Plus, the newer cherry bomb-style dual exhaust gives this one a throaty roar you don’t get from your average Sting Ray. Best of all you have complete control of the extra power and its bigger growl thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. This is a true sports car for the road with the C2’s fully independent suspension and the grip of modern Tiger Paw performance tires.
