No matter what or why you collect, there's no denying the blue chip appeal of mid-year Corvettes. And while classic Corvette culture may have started with small block offerings, it's the brand's big block cars that have ALWAYS commanded buyers' utmost respect. Featuring an original Tri-power 427, this super clean Sting Ray is a highly exclusive rarity that wraps a correct drivetrain in a killer color combination. And whether you're in the market for one of the coolest Corvettes ever made, or just an outstanding muscle car, it's the kind of Main Street centerpiece that can fulfill your lifelong dreams!
The beneficiary of a ground-up restoration that was completed in the summer of 2010, this striking Sting Ray is a decidedly clean classic. During its in-depth rebuild, the car's solid, fiberglass was thoroughly massaged to correct most of the typical waves and ripples that came standard from GM's St. Louis manufacturing facility. With those cosmetic semantics complete, a finishing phase took the form of aggressive block-sanding. And finally, everything was layered in correct Marina Blue 2-stage, accented with a sinister stinger stripe and buffed to an impressive, wet-look shine.
With this roadster, the idea was to create a super nice cruiser that can be enjoyed without worry. Whether that means an excellent original piece was refinished to like-new condition, or fresh reproduction items were installed, the car's caretakers certainly ensured its appearance is both accurate and impressive. At the front of this old school street queen, bullet-style marker lights, show worthy bumpers and a red, white and black cross-flag emblem cage a stainless egg crate grille. Behind that grille, brazen “427” emblems adorn a 1967-exclusive stinger hood. At the sides of that hood, simple heat extractors ride between traditional door handles, a classy bowtie mirror, and chambered and shielded side pipes. Opposite those pipes, straight stainless trim complements a fresh roof and correctly tinted glass. And behind that glass, familiar Corvette tail lamps illuminate a chrome-trimmed fuel filler and correct “Corvette STING RAY” emblem above a chrome-trimmed tag bracket and two more show worthy bumpers.
It's hard not to notice a second generation Corvette, especially in a spectacular coat of Marina Blue. And this drop-top's original 427 cubic inch Tri-power V8 will ensure the car is both seen AND heard! At the top of the Chevy Orange block, a trio of Holley carburetors rides between a chrome, correctly-decaled air cleaner and bright, stainless fluid lines. Below those carburetors, a familiar Winters intake funnels a perfect air/fuel mixture in to tough, cast iron heads, which wear traditional steel valve covers. When the juice hits the cylinders, reliable, chrome-capped ignition sparks fresh, stainless-sleeved wires while a stock cam and rotating assembly push spent gases through restored exhaust manifolds. Cooling for that fire is provided by a beefy radiator, which hangs in front of pliable GM hoses and reproduction tower clamps. Aesthetically, this Chevy's tidy engine compartment is exceptionally well done, framing a modern alternator, fresh brake booster and tagged Delco battery in bright decals and clean, Satin Black fenders. And the 400 horsepower mill is authenticated by a correct 3904351 casting number, which follows a correct 427/4-speed (JC) suffix stamp and matching partial VIN.
Not surprisingly, the bottom of this pavement-pounding Vette is solid, clean and ready to roll. Behind the awesome big block, a familiar Muncie 4-speed hangs a correct 3885010 casting number in front of a 1967 (7) Muncie (P) assembled on December (T) 5th (05), 1966 build stamp. That tough transmission twists a stout G81 posi-traction rear end. Turns come courtesy of a power-assisted steering rack. Power 4-wheel disc brakes provide solid, confident stops. Impressive, true-dual exhaust funnels spent gases through correctly chambered side pipes. Solid, unvarnished floors perfectly complement a straight, Satin Black chassis. And all that reliable hardware rolls on conservative Rally wheels that spin 7.75-15 BF Goodrich Silvertown redlines around stainless trim rings and polished center caps.
Open this C2's tossable doors and you'll find a correct Bright Blue interior that appears to have been completely replaced during the car's extensive rebirth. Seating comes courtesy of firm vinyl thrones, which are anchored between fresh belts, bright stainless trim and a small console that's centered on a fully functional shifter. From the driver's perch, a traditional clock and Delco AM/FM radio ride between rebuilt gauges and an aluminum-trimmed glove box. Below that dash, like-new carpet balances translucent floor mats amid fresh stainless sills. Above those sills, chrome-trimmed door panels hang monochromatic accents between small armrests and traditional handles. In front of the driver, a satin-spoke steering wheel spins around a brilliant cross-flag emblem. And behind the passengers, a fully carpeted storage compartment boasts enough room for a picnic basket and some detailing supplies.

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
