1967 Corvette Sting Ray Photos

The Sting Ray2012 LA Police Car Show - 19 I can remember the early days when my dad would take me for a ride in his String Ray Corvette.  Zero to 60 MPH in 6 seconds was a blast!  The Sting Ray's interior has changed over the years but I've always liked the new interpretation of the twin-cowl Corvette dash motif that started in 1958. It was more practical, with a roomy glovebox, an improved heater, and the cowl-ventilation system. A full set of round gauges included a huge speedometer and tachometer. The control tower center console contained the clock and a vertically situated radio.

Typical magazine road tests of the day yielded sub-6 second zero to 60 miles per hour (97 km/h) times and quarter miles in the mid 13 second/106 MPH range.
