1959 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Racer Concept
Developed by GM design chief Bill Mitchell (Harley Earl’s successor in 1958), stylist Larry Shinoda, and the engineering help of the “godfather” of the Corvette, Zora Arkus-Duntov, the Stingray was fitted with a high-compression, fuel injected 283 cubic-inch V8 engine that produced 315 horsepower and entered into SCCA C-Class competition.
The car won two consecutive class championships in 1959 and 1960. It was retired soon after. The Stingray’s body design strongly influenced the styling of the next generation Corvette (1963). - Via: 1 | 2
