Harry Mann Chevrolet was the largest Corvette dealer in America when the new 1963 Sting Ray Z06 made its race debut at the October 1962 Times Grand Prix in Riverside, CA. However, driver Gary Pickens was relegated to the sidelines, as Chevrolet had released only six RPO Z06 competition Corvettes and none would be available to the Mann dealership until December.

This Edsel Pacer was used as a daily driver and then restored by the late actor Sage Stallone, son of Sylvester Stallone. It is attractive in its medium gray metallic paint and red-and-white vinyl interior.

Most recently, it received a cosmetic freshening that included the installation of a new convertible top and a rear-mounted dual-exhaust system. This car is in very good to excellent condition throughout, making it a stunning example of the most desirable year of Edsel production.
