I am very confused of what type of car is a C2 Stingray (1963-1968). Folks at Yearone.com says a C2 is a muscle cars, but others says it is a sport cars. Which one is it guys,can you help me?

Ultimately it depends on how you define a sports car vs a muscle car, but for my 2 cents the c2 is lightweight, powerful, and handles well (like all Corvettes). Its THE American sports car.

It's both. Especially when you have a BB.:thumbsup:
I agree, the answer to that question is "yes." Any vehicle that had road racing performance like the first Z06 (and many others) as well as a fender shaking power plant like the '67 L-88 is definitely both.

Just for the record, C2's are '63-'67 (not '68):thumbsup: and they are called Sting Ray = 2 words instead of Stingray = 1 word = C3 '69-'77 I believe? No Stingrays in '68 and they quitted putting 'Stingray' on the cars in either '76 or '77 :D

And to answer your question: I'd say they're best of both worlds!:partyon: :partyon:

Must be the 77 version because our 76 says Stingray :D

Yeah, maybe I wasn't clear enough.. I meant they put the Stingray-logo on the '76's or the '77's for the last time, so '76 for sure and maybe the '77's :D.. I don't remember:lookinup:

I don't know. I have always thought of muscle cars that have huge engines and go fast (but only in a straight line.) Sports cars to me a lean and agile, but with ample power.

It is a CORVETTE"!!!!!Enough Said. This question reminds me of the old Dirt Band Song when they are asked if they are "Country or Rock".

1976 was the last year for Stingray. Does not appear on the 77.

Sports car! Muscle cars are cars originally designed as sedans, and they added a big engine at a discount cost to compete with the sport cars.

sports cars go fast around corners and muscle cars don't.

hence the corvette is a sports car, but will also rip a quick 1/4 mile as a bonus.
