Although there were two significantly different front ends and three different rear ends to the C1 Corvette, they all shared a solid rear axle. When the 1963 Sting Ray arrived, the solid rear axle was gone forever. However, a knickname was birthed for the C1: Solid Axle Corvettes.
The Solid Axle Corvette Club has brought Corvette enthusiasts together for thirteen years or so, and their Annual Convention is upon us in just about a month! Join them in St. Charles, Missouri the week of June 11. Complete details can be found on their website.
A tip of the hat goes out to Classic Motorsports Magazine for a story in the May print issue.
