Description

The Chevrolet Corvette (C2) (C2 for Second Generation), also known as the Corvette Sting Ray, is a sports car that was produced by Chevrolet for the 1963 to 1967 model years.

This die-cast model is a 'tooned (from cartooned) version of the real life Sting Ray. It is a so-called Drop Top: a visual appearance that reminds one of a car that has been crushed by an elephant. The body sits low to the ground for a perfect center of gravity which gives the car more speed on the track. Re-releases have been relatively limited.

The '63 Corvette Sting Ray is one of only two Drop Tops cars with a plastic base; the other is the Dodge Super 8 Hemi. To compensate the casting is very rear heavy.
