3951 Higuera Street
Culver City, CA
Factory numbers matching car, as reported by her current Owners of over 27 years, knock-offs, and with just 58,109 original miles our ‘Ray is just a stunning, wonderful classic.
All original, never molested and just driven for enjoyment, our 1966 Corvette Sting Ray Coupe is a superb example of The American Sportscar. From the hi-po 327 to the very rare knock-off rims, she’s a unique Sunfire beauty. Owned by the same couple since their purchase from 1994, she’s been driven, adding approximately 25,000 joyous miles throughout the state of Idaho. Currently residing in the farming community of Buhl, ID she has a clean, unencumbered title in our Owner’s names.
Sunfire yellow, she is reported that it is very likely the original factory applied paint. Her glass is reported as perfect. Chrome and brightwork show very nice and original, with just a bit of aging. Body panels appear to be excellent and the fit follows factory standards. The knock-off rims are a huge bonus to the car as very few remain in tact today.
Very nice black upholstery is reported as original vinyl. Current Owners decided to upgrade their Coupe with a tilt wheel for ease of entry. All controls and accessory’s function proper, including the power windows. She is a power steering, power brake car as well. Stock, clean and sanitary, her originality speaks to her pride of ownership.
Powered by the 350 horse L-79 version of the venerable 327 cid small block V8, they were the balance of weight and power. Backing is a Muncie four-speed transmission. All remaining running gear is stock and either original or maintained with OEM parts. Documented repairs from 1996 show extensive refurbishment, from clutch and associated items to a refreshment of the motor. And lovingly driven for many a fine mile since.
The thorough and exhaustive review of this Sting Ray was performed by Lemon Squad. After their review of both cosmetic items and mechanicals, they gave her an excellent bill of health. Cosmetically, they noted the age of the paint and remarked on its exceptional condition. Interior items were reviewed, discovering just a bit of wear and really fine originality, but for the aforementioned added tilt column. Finally, the cosmetic reviewed noted a spot of rust at the door jam, passenger’s side. Mechanicals were diagnosed and a very excellent almost flawless review was reported.
The popularity of second-generation Corvette’s is unquestionable. They are desired, loved, showed, driven and revered. Their value is just climbing, especially original, unmodified and optioned cars. High on the list is the performance oriented 350 horse 327, the manual 4 speed and her electronic and mechanical accessories. Finish with reported factory-optioned aluminum knockoffs and she is indeed one for the ages.
