Two passengers in a white Corvette C4 convertible might want to buy some lottery tickets after the lucky men escaped without injury when the car rolled over in Springfield, Illinois on May 18.
Fifty years ago, the new 1963 Corvette Sting Rays were rolling off the assembly line at the Corvette plant in St. Louis. One of those Corvettes was VIN #10863 which was a Riverside Red 360 hp Fuel Injected Corvette Roadster.
According to the story, the Corvette stayed in town where it was sold by Big Four Chevrolet in St. Louis to man who owned an auto repair business in neighboring East St.Louis, IL. The new owner ordered the Corvette while his wife was pregnant and it arrived for delivery just about the same time she gave birth to twins.
