1956 Corvette SR-2 Racer Offered For Sale

One of the most famous Corvettes of all time is being offered for the first time ever to the general public. The noted 1956 SR-2 is being made available through Corvette Mike. The car started life as VIN #2522 and went straight to the GM Styling Studio from the St. Louis plant under Shop Order 90090. There, under the watchful eyes of Harley Earl and Zora Arkus Duntov it began its transformation into the car we know today.

[VIDEO] CorvetteBlogger Visits the Ron Fellows Driving School at Spring Mountain

1965 Corvette VIN 001 Heading to Mecum's Kissimmee Auction

The 1965 Corvette Sting Ray was in its day the C7 of the era, you might say.

The third year of the second generation featured serious updates for drivers, not the least of which was Zora’s long-awaited disc brakes at all four wheels to provide the best possible stopping ability for the time.

Just as the C7 is the darling of the car magazines these days, so was the 1965 Corvette that was finally judged not only an American status symbol but a genuine high-performance sports car capable of thrilling even the most demanding drivers.
