Few Corvettes have achieved such notoriety as the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray, which launched the second generation of America's Sports Car with a sexy aerodynamic design by Bill Mitchell and Larry Shinoda, riding a thoroughly redesigned chassis with Corvette's first four-wheel independent suspension, developed by Zora Arkus Duntov. Also new was the first-ever production Corvette Coupe, immediately recognized by its split rear window. While the basic design of the coupe would last until 1967, the split-window would not, and it is the signature identifying feature of closed 1963 Corvettes today..
