I am a little confused about the term Stingray. Tis all came about when I read about the new c7 corvette and they state that not since 1967 has a corvette used the name stingray. I own a 1971 Stingray. I know that 1969 to 1978 vettes were also called Stingrays. 1968 for some reason was left off the car. Is there a significant difference between to the term "Sting Ray" written as 2 words as in 1969 or "Stingray" written as 1 word as in 1969 to 1978 model yrs ? and if not why would Chevy say that not since 1967 has a car donned the Stingray logo ?

sting ray was used from 63-67 in 68 it was simply corvette. 69-76 became stingray. up until the c7 my old shark was the last stingray. :D

Sorry, I misquoted some of the years. But my question is, what is the difference ? Why the change ? And why would Chevy make that statement saying that "not since 1967 has a car had the iconic Stingray logo" ? 1976 is the last year for Stingray I believe.
 
It's funny at car shows but I get younger people zooming in on the Stingray script on the front fenders to take pictures. I guess after all these years the name still means something even to people who were born after the last ones in '76. :confused:
 
So based on the statement of the new corvette being the first sting ray since 1967, does that mean it is a Sting Ray and not a Stingray?

Remember they are names. Just cause they are very close to the same thing doesn't mean they are. I like to think of them as totally different since the body style changed. Either way though I love my Stingray.

Does anyone know the font use for the script Stingray emblems?

So then the article stating the first stingray since 67 is just wrong. I googled the Stingray logo for the C7..... I like it. Not as much as the script, but it is nice.

Probably a typo in the article. 67 should have been 76. It's just funny that when reversing the numbers the years line up with the name change. :rofl:

I don't know the font used. I don't know if windows created a font to replicate the Stingray script. I like the script better than the logo as well.

The original question as to why Sting Ray went to Stingray is interesting. I don't know why Chev changed the name.
