THE CHEVROLET CORVETTE

To say that the Sting Ray's arrival caused a sensation would be an understatement. Indeed, such was its runaway success that the St. Louis factory hired a second shift but still could not build cars fast enough to meet demand. Styled by Bill Mitchell, the new Corvette featured radical styling pioneered on Mitchell's successful Stingray sports-racer, and for the first time there was a GT Coupe in the range. The cars all-new chassis was the work of Zora Arkus-Duntov who said: For the first time I have a Corvette which I am proud to use in Europe. Now recognized as representing a 'golden age' for the Corvette, the Sting Ray was manufactured from 1963 to 1967 and has since gone on to become a highly collectible modern classic.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The fine example of the potent big-block, mid-year Corvette offered here was completed at GM's St. Louis based Corvette plant on October 26th, 1966, and built as a 1967 model-year car. The new Corvette was finished in Goodwood Green over a Black interior, the same livery as it appears in today. This big-block Corvette is offered with the original tank sticker, documenting the optional equipment, including the 427 390hp TurboJet V8 engine, Positraction differential, M21 4-speed Close-Ratio transmission, auxiliary Hard Top, side-exit exhaust, headrests, AM/FM radio and power brakes.

This fine Corvette achieved Gold Certification at the 2017 Bloomington Gold Corvette event, presented at the Indy 500 Speedway, and retains the matching numbers engine and transmission. The result of a detailed, OEM-oriented restoration, this sporting Corvette shows beautifully throughout. Most recently, the Holley carburetor has been rebuilt, and the chassis has received much attention, including fitting of new brake calipers, shock absorbers, leaf springs, suspension bushings, steering components and more. The car is offered with an OEM jack and tools, as well as an array of owner's manuals and instruction books in a correct holder. A lovely example from the end of the C2 Corvette production run, this would be a great car to take on vintage rallies and tours, such as the Copperstate or Texas 1000.
