1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray
Ever wanted something really badly but couldn't quite get your hands on it? Better yet ever wanted something that was really rare? That might be what the owner of this awesome classic had in mind when he transformed a run-of-the-mill '66 Vette into a world-class Grand Sport replica. Hailing from a $127K build that was completed in late 2012 this razor-sharp coupe wraps glossy black paint and a bright red stripe around fresh Mid-America fiberglass. Tilt the hood and you'll find 383 cubic inches ...of stroked Chevy small block that twists stout 9.6 to 1 compression into 502 dyno-proven horses and 513 lb./ft. of dyno-proven torque. Behind that mill a tough Tremec TKO600 5-speed hangs a McLeod Centerforce clutch between a sturdy McLeod flywheel and proven Lakewood scattershield. That strip-ready gearbox twists torque to a rugged Dana 44 third member which is stuffed with track-ready 3.45 gears. That first-class drivetrain rolls on a fourth generation Corvette independent suspension which follows compact Aldan coil-overs with fresh Bilstein shocks. Turning is a cinch thanks to modern power rack-and-pinion steering. Smooth and solid stops are provided by a quartet of discs and calipers. And power flows through attractive Halibrand-style wheels which twist meaty Goodyear Eagle GTIIs. Inside this Vette you'll find a stylish interior that mixes fresh leather surfacing with vivid visuals. Not surprisingly those visuals are framed in a 4-inch round tube roll cage. That cage cradles hi-back 2-tone seats which are finished with 4-point Simpson safety harnesses. In front of those seats a body-matched dash hangs clean Auto Meter Phantom telemetry over brisk Vintage Air climate control. And in front of the driver a polished steering wheel laps a tilting column. Lust worthy athletic and ready to rule Main Street this awesome C2 is an excellent combination of classic looks and incredible performance! Call click or visit for more information.
