This is a numbers-matching 1966 Chevrolet Corvette convertible coming off of long-term ownership. And it has all the features you really want, like a terrific color combo, both tops, and a stick shift. It makes for the kind of classic that has an all-around appeal.
This one has been in the hands of the same owner for over 35 years. Long-term care is the kind of thing you want when searching for a car with good-looking body lines. And that's especially important on a C2 Corvette. After .....
all, you have that well-defined crease that encircles the body and even includes the headlights when closed. This is a factory Ermine White car, and when you're a true Corvette fan, you love this color because it was the first color they ever offered. This respray has a very driver-quality appearance, and so you may decide to update it. But what excites us about this car is that the fundamentals are all there. The chrome bumpers are clean/complete and the details are present, right down to the factory wheel covers. So it's an icon presented as a true classic.
While you'll love both roof options, we know your real favorite one will be no roof at all. After all, nothing beats an open-top classic, and this one does it with a timeless full black style. This is believed to be a highly original presentation, and that will always excite Corvette fans. There's a good look on the bucket seats, a smooth dash, and just the right hint of patina on the door trim. So you have a nice-looking vintage package where there are good details, like the iconic clock. And of course, as a true Corvette, this car truly speaks to your enthusiast heart. That means a grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel, full gauges with large speedo & tach, and a bright shifter calling out for your right hand.
The engine bay looks as correct as the rest of the car. That means a bold block, bright distributor shield, and Corvette script valve covers. Plus, you have the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top. You can tell it has been given the right engine maintenance with newer items like newer wires, hoses, and alternator. The V8 fires up readily, and you have full control of it thanks to the four-speed manual transmission (also believed to be original to the car.) Chevrolet created a world-class sports car with the C2 Corvette, and this still holds true today with features like a fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.
This Sting Ray shows the good care of long-term ownership. So when you're looking for classic distinction, you know you don't want to miss this Corvette. Call now!
