1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray


Many Vette enthusiasts regard the C2 as Chevrolet’s purest Corvette design. And that’s very easy to understand given this classic’s small dimensions, purpose-built form and athletic demeanor. Of course, those qualities are best viewed through a beautiful restoration and, fortunately, the guys who reworked this Sting Ray did a fantastic job. Since the previous owner’s goal was to have a classic that’s both striking and functional, he made sure the car’s no-hit body was clean, laser-straight and much nicer than any factory-correct original. Once that high level of fit and finish was attained, a buttery layer of correct Laguna Blue basecoat, available only for the 1966 model year, was sealed in glossy clear. And the rest, as they say, is six-figure, show-stopping history! Tilt this Corvette’s fiberglass hood and you’ll find an original, 327 cubic inch L79 V8 which hangs a familiar 3858174 casting number behind a correct “HT” suffix stamp and matching partial VIN. Introduced as a formidable companion for street prowling Sting Rays, this high performance small block twists stout 10 to 1 compression into 350 horsepower. Behind that mill, an original Muncie 4-speed hangs a correct 3885010 casting number over an April 25th, 1966 assembly stamp and matching partial VIN. At the ends of the car, a fully sorted double A-arm front and independent rear suspension is completely detailed down to its fresh shocks, correct springs and standard manual steering. At the corners of that suspension, standard disc brakes mix good handling characteristics with quick and solid stops. And at the edges of those brakes, dressed wheels spin 7.75-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion goldlines around classy stainless hubcaps. Simply put: Corvettes are great cars to own, and this wonderfully restored roadster is an investment grade classic that’ll serve you well both on the road and at the show!
