Background to the 61 Corvette tail and the 63 Sting Ray rear end design.

You should look at a car called the "Victress C2 Coupe", designed in 1953 by Merrill Powell and fisrt sold in 1954 by the Victress Car Company in L.A.

The tail of the 61 Vette including the rear wheel arches are a direct copy of the 'Victress C2'.

The tail of the 61 Vette including the rear wheel arches are a direct copy of the C2 and was continued
into the Sting Ray.

Give credit where credit is due.
