Talk about a combination of desirable factors aligning just right. Not only was this 1963 C2 Corvette Sting Ray once owned by the famed Mickey Thompson, but it has two incredibly rare features, too.
This 1963 C2 Corvette Sting Ray is a “big tank” with RPO code Z06. The Z06 package provided plenty of race ready equipment, including the larger fuel tank for racing endeavors. It’s also one of five C2 Corvette Sting Rays assigned to Thompson by General Motors to be piloted.
Furthermore, it’s one of only 63 other 1963 C2 Corvette Sting Ray coupes to feature the coveted Z06 package, spearheaded by the legendary Zora Arkus-Duntov.
It’s validated, too. This Corvette has been researched, confirmed and documented by Corvette expert David Burroughs.
Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale will open on January 14, 2017, and run through January 22. Be sure to watch for this and a handful of other notable GM metal, including the 1960 CERV I, one another one of Zora Arkus-Duntov’s brainchildren.
