If you've been watching second-generation Corvette prices lately, you know that even the small block cars are becoming hot collectibles. Let's face it, at this point, ANY C2 will turn heads and provide a nice return. But in the realm of hardcore collectors, fully documented big block cars are still the crème of the crop. This sculpted Sting Ray coupe is a fully documented classic that wraps timeless red and black aesthetics around an original 4-speed and an original 427. And if you're looking to storm the collector car hobby with guaranteed pedigree, it's an easy ride to the front of the pack!
Originating at GM affiliate A.O. Smith in May of 1966, this slick C2 is the kind of classic that you can look at and virtually sense top-notch caretaking. As you likely deduced from our high-resolution photography, the car was recently restored by very passionate enthusiasts. That ground-up reboot began with solid, original fiberglass being fully stripped, lovingly sanded and gratuitously sprayed in glossy Rally Red 2-stage. With that pigment applied, the car's doors and lids were carefully adjusted to ensure good fit and finish. And vibrant factory trim was affixed under a correct big block hood to ardently accentuate Bill Mitchell's razor-sharp style lines.
Tilt the hood and you'll find an original, 427 cubic inch L72 big block that frames a correct “IP” suffix stamp and matching 123676 partial VIN in a high performance 3869942 casting number and May (E) 11th (11), 1966 (6) casting date. According to the factory, that legendary mill, fully rebuilt and correctly dressed, churns out an impressive 425 horsepower. At the top of the Chevy Orange block, a proven Holley carburetor rides between a chrome, correctly decaled air cleaner and fresh stainless fuel lines. Below that carb, a familiar Winters intake floats between correct heads, and stamped and color-keyed valve covers. When the juice hits the cylinders, retrofitted electronic ignition sparks fresh, stainless-sleeved wires while a factory-spec cam pushes spent gases through fully restored exhaust manifolds. Cooling for that fire is provided by a shrouded radiator, which hangs in front of pliable hoses and reproduction tower clamps. And, aesthetically, this Sting Ray's tidy engine compartment is exceptionally well done, framing items like a rebuilt Delco alternator, a modern battery and a correct master cylinder in clean, Satin Black surfacing.
Bottom-side, this Vette is just as clean, with a fully restored chassis framing fresh, weather-free floor tubs. Behind the awesome big block, an original Muncie 4-speed sports a familiar 3885010 casting number, a Muncie (P) assembled on June (06) 2nd (02), 1966 build stamp and a matching 123676 partial VIN. That tough transmission twists a familiar transverse leaf axle, which, according to its “AM” assembly stamp, spins a posi-traction differential around big, 3.36 gears. That drivetrain rolls on a fully rebuilt suspension, which mixes old school manual steering with 4-wheel disc brakes. And at the corners of the floor, 205/75R15 Coker Classic redlines lap traditional Knock-Off Wheels.
Check between this C2's doors and you'll find a correct Standard Interior that's been completely restored. Tight bucket 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 radio. In front of the driver, a faux Rosewood steering wheel laps a familiar bowtie emblem. And optional power windows ensure occupants feel the full wrath of the buff 427!
