800 Derita Road, Ste. A
An awesomely-restored triple-black 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible is exactly what you've been looking for. It even has its numbers-matching V8, a close-ratio four-speed, and it's even an actual mileage car! And today this hot Sting Ray is also a cool A/C cruiser. So this drop-top will have you going out for plenty of weekend drivers, and the destination is usually going to be a car show.
The trim tag tells us this was born a Tuxedo Black car, and that's quite important. While that makes for a valuable car today, it was actually the least popular Corvette color in 1966. Rarity and quality are the cornerstones of getting the big awards at the car shows. Later C2s are the perfect cars to get in black. The solid hood and less trim mean there's more space to show off this awesome paintwork. This car is the product of careful restoration, and they laid a piano-like finish over the super-straight body. So that luster has the ideal look for a sunny-day drive. Plus, this car also has all the best details you're looking for, like the mirror-like chrome bumpers, side pipe exhaust, and turbine wheels with knock-off style center hubs. It's a crisp, clean, and vintage package, right down to the gold line tires.
The black folding top is a quality piece that looks terrific in place, and when you take it down, you get a full view of the fresh and restored black interior. So yes, this one is a factory ultra-desirable triple-black (paint, roof, and interior.) The level of investment in this one goes right down to the details, like the working courtesy lights and Delco AM/FM radio. In fact, the only upgrade you'll notice is one you can't see, but you will absolutely feel. This was recently upgraded to R134a air conditioning. So that means you get to stay cool while looking cool behind the wheel because after all, a Sting Ray like this was meant to be driven. That's why you have a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel that gives you an excellent view of the full gauges, including large speedo and tach. You know that bright stick shift is just calling out for your right hand.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8. You can tell there was plenty left in the restoration budget to get this one looking like day one. It inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet rumble from those side pipes. And you have complete control of it all with the Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath the car, you can see more of the difference an investment in quality makes. Plus, you're reminded of all the great driving features offered on the '66 Corvette, like the fully independent suspension, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, build receipts, and title documentation. You'll even love how you can tell the car show judges that this actual mileage vehicle has averaged only a little over 1,500 miles annually. It's all about a total quality package that brings together rarity, pedigree, and award-worthy style. Call now!
