Also referred to as “Mid-Years,” second-generation (1963-67) C2 Corvettes did much to transform the Vette into an American icon. Now dubbed the Sting Ray, the Corvette’s new styling was, in a word, striking, with a fixed-roof coupe now complementing the convertible. But perhaps the bigger news was the C2’s technical and performance updates. For the first time, Corvette buyers could opt for a big block, the L78 396 in 1965 which gradually evolved into the legendary L88 427 in 1967. A close-ratio Muncie M20 four-speed became available in late 1963, and four-wheel disc brakes were standard in 1965. Whether you’ve got a “Split Window” ’63 or a “Stinger Hood” ’67, keep your C2 Corvette Sting Ray looking and running great with these popular aftermarket parts.
