If you grew up around a set of wrenches, you know nothing screams TIMELESS PERFORMANCE louder than a second generation Corvette. And even though the MoPar camp does a pretty good job of representing brute force, and the blue oval boys had their fair share of roadster glory, terms like ""327"", ""Muncie"" and ""side-pipes"" are probably some of the first words you remember hearing. Thankfully the significance of those terms only grows with time and education, making cars like this impressive C2 all the more desirable. And currently, decked in classic blue and black aesthetics, this awesome drop-top is the product of an extensive, ground-up restoration that fostered a return to factory glory and then some. Looking to own one of the world's most sought after sports cars? This sweet Sting Ray is fully-sorted and ready to please!
NOTHING BETTER THAN A BLUE BOWTIE
Hardened on June 15th, 1966, and rolling out of a professional restoration, this polished drop-top currently reflects correct code 976 Bright Blue 2-stage paint. That blissful pigment highlights a sea of solid fiberglass that, thanks to the rebuild, presents exceptionally well. Of course, that lightweight body wouldn't be as solid had the car not spent most of its life in the possession of dedicated enthusiasts. And today, this vintage cruiser is a clean, well-maintained classic that's ready to drop jaws and carve curves!
Second generation Corvettes are literally the stuff dreams are made of, and, thanks to acute attention to detail, this razor-sharp roadster is the epitome of legendary American motoring. At the front of the car, bullet-style marker lights, mirrored bumpers and a red, white and black cross-flag emblem cage a stainless egg crate grille. Behind that grille, a subtle curvaceous hood flows to matte wipers which, along with polished stainless trim and tight White canvas, frame a factory-tint greenhouse. At the sides of that glass, simple heat extractors lead traditional door handles, a classy mirror and a factory antenna. And at the back of the car, dual-mode tail lamps split the difference between mirrored bumpers, a chrome-trimmed fuel filler and a correct Sting Ray emblem.
Tilt this Corvette's lightweight hood and you'll find a 327 cubic inch L79 V8 that hangs a May (E) 12th (12), 1967 (7) casting date and familiar 3892657 casting number behind a high performance ""HT"" suffix stamp and matching 119480 partial VIN. Introduced as a formidable companion for street prowling Sting Rays, this high performance small block left the factory twisting solid 10 to 1 compression into a stout 350 horsepower. At the top of the spry mill, a polished air cleaner funnels wind in to a correct Holley carburetor that's threaded onto requisite stainless fuel lines. Below that juice box, a familiar Winters aluminum intake perfectly complements finned Corvette valve covers. At the back of that intake, chrome-cased ignition shoots spark past correct exhaust manifolds. And at the front of those manifolds, a Harrison-branded radiator cycles coolant through pliable hoses and correct tower clamps. Naturally, brilliant Chevy Orange paint coats the engine from its clean oil pan all the way to its polished oil filler and, as always, looks great against GM's Satin Black bay. As expected, correct textures and decals are present and accounted for. And details like a correct alternator, a familiar Harrison expansion tank and a retro Delco battery ensure this Chevy runs every bit as good as it looks.
SOLID AND READY FOR THE ROAD
Behind the 327, an original Muncie 4-speed hangs a familiar 3885010 casting number next to a Muncie (P) assembled on March © 13th (13), 1967 (7) build stamp and matching 119480 partial VIN. That gearbox twists a familiar Corvette third-member that leads a March (3) 30th (30) 1967 (67) assembly stamp with a date-correct ""AM"" prefix stamp. At the ends of the car, a requisite double A-arm front and independent rear suspension is completely sorted down to its tough transverse leaf, fluid power steering and Gloss Black control arms. Above those sturdy bones, clean floor tubs ride a straight, Satin Black frame. At the corners of those floors, standard 4 wheel disc brakes mix good handling characteristics with quick and solid stops. At the edges of those brakes, sporty side-pipes disperse a fantastic soundtrack. And red-trimmed turbine wheels twist 7.75-15 Firestone Super Sport redlines around monochromatic bowtie caps.
CORRECTLY BRIGHT BLUE AS WELL
Between this C2's doors you'll find a correct Bright Blue interior that's been fully restored to factory specifications. Tight seats frame a thin console that's equipped with a correct chrome shifter. In front of that shifter, a monochromatic dash hangs rebuilt telemetry over a correct Delco AM/FM pushbutton radio. At the sides of that dash, stylish door panels melt in to fade-free carpet. And in front of the driver, a faux Rosewood steering wheel laps a familiar cross-flag emblem.
With a spry small block, a tough Muncie 4-speed and a first class restoration, this Sting Ray is a fully-sorted classic that virtually spells the term ""bragging rights"". If you're ready to add some fresh firepower to your automotive arsenal, don't miss the chance to take home this sweet Chevrolet legend!
