Post up your 1968 to 1976 C3 Corvette Stingray photos here :cool:
I need a bit of help here on Corvette history. My first mother in law in the early 80's purchased a 1979 white with black interior with auto and I could have sworn it was badged as a Stingray.

So here are my questions, is my memory going bad and she didn't have either a 79 or a stingray? Were the C3's produced between 77-82 not stingrays?
Is it possible to have a 79 be a stingray?

I know someone here has this knowledge, thanks for the help and clarification.

Hello Tom0021:

Not being an expert as well, I did have a 78 and it did not have the Stingray badge on it. Where "Stingray" was in the earlier C3s was the Corvette crossed flags on my 78. I believe 77 was the last year for the name plate of Stingray even though people still called them Stingrays in 78 & 79. I am not even sure if 78 & 79 were classed as C3s. Because of the body change to the fast back window in 78. But then, when you think about it, the major body changes in the 80s was mainly front and rear but the interiors if I am not mistaken were diff. I believe C4 started they year they introduce the clam shell front end.

I have added a photo of my 78 and you can see it did not have Stingray on the fender as in previous years. This was teken when I was selling the car back in 1988.
