1966 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
Combining the racing-style chassis of the defunct Corvette SS concept with a new, highly styled fiberglass body gave the original Sting Ray concept model the sleek, muscular style of a classic muscle car. Built to take on the soon-to-be-banned manufacturer-sponsored professional racing circuit, and although certainly capable on the track (at least enough to take a Sports Car Club of America National Championship in 1960), the Sting Ray concept was eventually retired from racing and significantly modified with the addition of a passenger's seat, among other things, and displayed as a show car. Also driven by Mitchell as his personal car on weekends, this model had a lasting and profound effect on the design and styling of future Corvette models to come starting with the C2 model line in 1963 through 1967, which actually bore the Sting Ray nameplate. This line boasted the now-classic muscle car look of peaked fenders, a short tail, and a long nose.
For consignment, a numbers matching C2 Stingray. With its sharklike pointed nose, hood stinger, peaked fenders, optional body colored hardtop and snubbed rear, one can easily see the similarity to the ocean predator from which it is aptly named. Presenting in very nice condition overall, this car has seen some restoration, but retains many original parts. Stored in a heated garage since 1998, recently serviced and recent brake work, some paint faults, and a soft top which will need to be replaced, I give you the C2 Sting Ray.
Bathed in a Nassau Blue respray, which is the original color, shows a few issues with the fiberglass below, the paint is looking great with only minor flaws. The chrome on bumpers are good and the brite work is in matching condition. The convertible top has soiling and is coming apart at the rear top seam and we note the rear window is clouded over. The top is operational, however, has this damage that would prevent it from spending large amounts of time outside in bad weather. A Corvette isn't a Corvette without side pipes so says this writer and this car has them in gleaming condition along with their protectors to keep you from burning your legs upon egress. Turbine style wheel covers with crossed flag hubs are on all 4 corners and are shod in modern thin whitewall radials.
With its iconic double brow dash, which presents in very good condition, nice and clean in the instrument front, and center console, all is looking good, and the wear and fading of the gauges indicate that they are original. It's all correct here, even the vertically mounted AM/FM radio and chromed shifter. Buckets are the correct black vinyl and are also in good condition with inner tuck and roll stitched vinyl and smooth outer bolsters. The carpet is a sea of black with minimal to no staining and is protected by black rubber mats. Door panels are pristine and appear to be original.
All numbers matching here with the HT coded 327ci L79 V8 making 350hp. Topped by a single 4-barrel carburetor, and its original Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission is on the back. An AP stamped rear axle assembly weighs in at a 4.11 ratio with Positraction. The engine is showing traces of its original orange/red block with a chrome air cleaner atop, and original valve covers in nice patina form. All buttoned up and looking great!
Surface rust, but otherwise unremarkable as to a solid frame, and good floor pans and rockers. This car sports disc brakes on all 4 corners and is sturdy underneath. Independent coil spring suspension is on the front and an independent suspension is on the rear with tubular shafts and a transverse multi-leaf spring. Dual exhaust feeds into the sidepipes and make for a melodious tune on a drive.
These early 1960's C2 "Vettes are just a blast to drive, and it made me feel like an artist driving my handiwork with its sculpted fiberglass body, and snappy interior. It lit right up, and the test track beckoned. Performance is the buzzword for this car, and thanks to the 350hp L79 mill it has nearly limitless acceleration, fine rail like handling, and solid braking. The transmission shifted smoothly but the wipers were nonfunctional, and the driver's headlight is lazy to rotate. We did note that the tires are flat spotted from years of sitting.
A great example from 1966 in Sting Ray form, she's a fun driver, and can be used as such with some new rubber, or even to show, it is nice enough and preserved enough to do so with respect. A great color combo, all-season driver with the convertible, and hardtop, and numbers matching with its Protect-o-Plate. A classy, sculpted profile sports car made in America and definitely iconic in its reputation and looks for this year, this Vette is definitely worth a second look.
