This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette is the kind of classic you want when you are looking for a fun total package. A recently rebuilt transmission, newer clutch, and upgraded suspension make for a good pairing with solid V8 power. And with everything from air conditioning to a Bluetooth radio inside they made the right investments to create one of the best all-around enjoyable Sting Rays out there.
Milano Maroon is a terrific factory-correct color to have on a Corvette. After all, it looks like someone combined the boldness of red, but the darker tone makes upgrades like the black trim stinger hood look even more harmonious. And this one really captures the best speedy style of its era with the knock-off style wheels, redline tires, and growling side pipes. And more than just a powerful sense of style, everything from the chrome on the bumpers to the way the panels fit gives this a quality feel. If you were looking for a Concours car, you would be putting some effort into details on the finish and trim. But that would also be missing the point of this Sting Ray. It's the kind of car that looks awesome to the casual enthusiast, and as you look through the details, the heart of the investment is about making it a more comfortable and confident driver. So it's the kind of car that you're going to readily take for a night out on the town, and love how everyone will ask for you to park it up front.
The black interior is clean, complete, and very inviting. There's a feeling of sturdiness and quality that's at the heart of a car that has been invested in or more than pure glamor, which makes it a solid cruiser. So do upgrades like R134a air conditioning and a retro-style AM/FM radio now with Bluetooth. And there's just something that gets your enthusiast's heart pumping the moment you sit down in the low-back bucket seat. The wood-rimmed steering wheel, polished shifter, and crisp dials on the large speedo and tach all seem to feed that little voice in your head that says, "let's go for a drive."
Under the hood is a tidy 327 cubic inch V8. It's built to have a clean and classic look with the Corvette script valve covers, a bright air topper with callouts, and a polished distributor shield. It has a presentation with the. The inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority out of those side pipes. The four-speed manual transmission has about 1k miles on the rebuild, and the clutch was also replaced at the time. So you have confident control over the V8 power and its rumbling soundtrack. Add in power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes, and it's easy to hit the open road. Plus, all C2 are treasured for introducing the Corvette to the fully independent suspension, but since this was made to be a driver, this coupe has elevated the experience. There have been investments like a tubular A-arm front end, a newer rear suspension with a larger mono leaf spring, and Bilstein shocks all around. It makes this an even sharper coupe and the reason why it so ideally fits its true driver's attitude.
There's a spirit to this Sting Ray that makes it such an ideal car for driver fun. So if you want to enjoy a legend to the fullest, call today!
