The exterior on the car is in awesome condition and is finished in original Code 974 Rally Red.
The restoration took place in 2002-2003 and the paint was done right and has been hand rubbed to a smooth as glass finish. The body is arrow straight and all body lines are correct and is a virgin un-hit or patched body with all factory seams still original and correct. The underside is very clean and the frame and chassis is dry and rust free. The chrome is also fully restored and shines like new! All emblems were replaced with new ones to give it a very crisp new look. The car is riding on brand new 15" Coker Redlines with the original restored Knock Off wheels with spinners.
The interior is in great shape all around. The interior was originally Code 407 Red but has been completely redone in high quality leather and in awesome condition. The seats have no tares or ware spots and look great. Both door panels, console, dash and carpet are very good condition. The simulated wood steering wheel is crack free and is included with the rare telescopic column. The previous owner opted to go with a high end tilting Flaming River billet column and polished aluminum wheel for easier entry and exit from the car. All gauges, switches, and even the power antenna are functional. The radio also works great!
Mechanically, this little Stingray runs great. The 327ci V8 is a very fast motor and this Vette FLYS! The motor was fully rebuilt using high quality parts and an OE spec Crane Cam. The engine compartment has no power robbing options so all 300hp go to the drive train! The engine compartment was restored with attention to detail with correct reproduction GM hoses, coolant tank, and fuel lines used throughout, and correct ignition shields in place. This car drives straight and true and is extremely tight in the suspension, which has all been replaced. The brakes are also all new and in very good shape and stop the car perfectly. This car needs nothing and is ready to cruise on a sunny day or hot summer night.
All in all, this is one very clean and well done '66 Corvette. Take a look at the price range many of these Sting Rays are selling mid 60K range. This is everything that those cars are without the huge price tag. This car is a great example of a solid, well restored car which has been meticulously maintained and can be enjoyed for years to come.
