The 1964 Chevrolet Corvette Stringray


1964 Green Corvette Coupe


The 1964 Corvette Stingray coupe lost it's split window, as well as the trim panels on the hood. The indentations on the hood were left which makes the '64 hood unique to this year. The left rear pillar vent in the coupe is now functional and uses a new 3 speed fan to pull in fresh air for better ventilation in the coupe. A new color "Satin Silver" was introduced this year. A new "simpler" rocker panel trim was added and the door release knobs were now finished in chrome.
