(PICS) Bill Mitchell's 1959 Road racer/showcar 'StingRay'


This beautiful racecar-come-showcar predated the production 1963 Corvette Stingray by over three years. Driven by dentist Dr Dick Tompson, Bill Mitchell's privately entered and financed Stingray won the 1960 Sports Car Club Of America championship in C/Modified class. I remember seeing a photo of the car in Road and Track back in the day and I thought it was the most beautiful looking racecar I'd ever seen. 60 Years later, I still think it looks stunning.
AutoArt did a beautiful job 20 years ago, replicating this amazing car as both racecar (red) and showcar (silver).
