• A variety of Chevrolet V8s were available which culminated in the famous L88 engine option, a 427ci homologation special, which found its way into the last Sting Rays in 1967. • Fuel injection was an option, with regular ‘big-blocks’ coming into the range from the 1965 model year onwards;
• And the most charismatic version – big-block, limited-edition specials aside – has to be the original ‘split window’ coupé;
• And while comparisons with the Cobra can be fully justified, do remember that the nicest early Corvette, like this one, is available to buy at less than a tenth of the price of Shelby’s finest.
