New in our gallery and store: This image is from a patent for the 1963 Corvette Stingray filed in May, 1962 by William L. Mitchell on behalf of General Motors Corporation. In an earlier post today we noted how famed-designer Harley Earl's 1963 Stingray is going on the auction block at the end of the month. This patent appears to be for the same vehicle, but without the custom accessories that went into Earl's version of the car. This is an ornamental design for the Stingray and simply covers the "look" of the vehicle.
