MOTOR MATTER CLASSIC CLASSICS BY VERN PARKER

In the fall of 1962 the new 1963 Corvettes were beginning to appear in Chevrolet dealer  showrooms. The 1963 models were the first Sting Ray offerings by Chevrolet. Richard Rago, a senior high school in Albany, Calif., Was infatuated with the new Corvette.   

His parents, Paul and Rose Rago, had his way to his graduation, so in the autumn of 1962, right after the new Sting Rays had appeared, Rago and his father went to the Chevrolet dealership and ordered one exactly exactly wanted. 

"I waited about eight months or longer for it to be delivered." Rago recalls. It was built at a General Motors facility in St. Louis, Mo. As the weather warmed up Rago stopped by the Chevrolet dealership on a daily basis to check the whereabouts of his Corvette. It was reported that it would be ready for delivery the next day. The price Rago's father paid for the graduation present was $ 4,598.76 .

On April 29, 1963 Rope took delivery of his Riverside Red Corvette roadster. His first trip to his home. Then he drove off to take Kathy, his girlfriend who would later become his wife, for a ride in the new Corvette.
