Vehicle Description

If you clicked this listing, we don't need to sell you on the virtues of the second-generation Corvette. You already know it's an attractive, comfortable, quick and all-around cool classic. In fact, it's one of the most popular collector cars of all time. That said, falling for a C2 is easy. The difficult part is finding a unique, well-restored car that'll keep you happy for years to come. Luckily, your friends at RK Motors Charlotte have a real knack for finding standout builds. And this incredible Sting Ray, wrapping a Chevrolet Performance LS3 in top-notch customization, is about as standout as it gets. So, if the mako bug has bitten you, take a closer look at this killer bowtie!

CORVETTE WITH A DASH OF CUSTOM

The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration that was completed roughly 200 miles ago, this classy cruiser was entirely disassembled and carefully stripped of its dull, original pigment. Once that prep was complete, an incredibly straight fuselage was tweaked to better-than-factory alignment and blanketed in clean GM two-stage. That silver pigment was lovingly detailed with a sinister Stinger Stripe. And today, This Chevy rolls with enough style to challenge pretty much anything at the show!

There's no question that the second-generation Corvette is one of the best-looking sports cars of all time. At the front of this Vette, a requisite cross-flag emblem shades polished bumpers, a stainless-trimmed grille and amber parking lamps. A stylish Stinger Hood fronts stainless-trimmed glass that's capped in tight cloth and cleared by muted wipers. At the sides of that hood, a black-trimmed profile frames polished handles, subtle louvers and a familiar bowtie mirror. And that mirror reflects two more polished bumpers, which frame factory taillights, polished tag trim, a prominent Sting Ray emblem and a color-keyed fuel filler.

PERFORMANCE BY CHEVROLET

Gaze upon this Chevy's body-matched engine bay and you'll find 6.2 liters of small block fury! Officially known as the Chevrolet Performance LS3, that factory-engineered crate engine twists respectable 10.7 to 1 compression into 430 horsepower and 425 lb./ft. of torque. At the top of the block, a glossy air tube funnels wind into a proven GM throttle body, which feeds a lightweight GM intake. That air meets spark in rectangular-port L92-style heads, which hide smooth roller rockers under color-keyed Corvette fuel rail covers. A nodular crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons compress that volatile union. A proven hydraulic roller cam maximizes intake efficiency. Speaking of efficiency, the smooth mill funnels spent gases through familiar GM manifolds. There's a lightweight DeWitts radiator that's slid in front of spry SPAL puller fans. Polished Street & Performance serpentine components spin a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. And AC Delco plug wires and a hot Optima battery join polished reservoirs and a trusty Wilwood master cylinder to detail otherwise purpose-built performance.

RESTO-ED AND MODDED

Take a gander under this cool drop-top and you'll find a tough tubular chassis that mixes new age athleticism with old school durability. A proven Tremec 5-speed, engaged by an easy hydraulic clutch, spins power to a requisite posi-traction differential that's packed with big, 3.73 gears. Those gears push a sporty fourth-generation Corvette rear-clip, which is finished with Vette Brakes & Products Smart Struts. Opposite that clip, a fourth-generation Corvette front-half features power rack-and-pinion steering. Stopping is a cinch thanks to red C4 calipers and 13-inch drilled and slotted rotors. Fossils are sourced through a Rick's Stainless tank. Shimmering side-pipes provide a glorious, all-American soundtrack. And torque melts the pavement through chromed, ZR1-style wheels, which spin 275/35ZR18 Hankook Ventus.

TRADITIONAL WITH A DASH OF NEW

Open the car's light doors and you'll find a tastefully customized interior that's stylish and very livable. There's a duo of leather buckets that feature comfy headrests. In front of those thrones, a stylish dual-cowl dash hangs factory telemetry over hardware for Vintage Air conditioning and a discreet Antique Automobile Radio. At the bottom of that dash, a shallow console frames a booted shifter. And the driver spins an attractive, wood-look steering wheel around a tilting Flaming River column.

Featuring proven Chevrolet power, this Corvette is a blast to drive, and it certainly has no trouble turning heads just sitting still. The car's fresh looks and virtually limitless performance honor the late '60s Americana we all know and love. At the same time, custom flair and modern build prowess make it an amazing place to log countless weekend miles. Don't miss your chance to own a standout Sting Ray that'll keep people gawking for years to come!
