You can ask pretty much any Corvette guy what the paramount vintage Vette is and he'll probably say C2. When you counter with words like 327 and Muncie, the phrases ultimate and blue chip become a natural settling point. And investors clearly agree, since prices on mid-year Chevys remain solid year after year despite the state of the economy. A splendid candidate for any serious gearhead, this mid-year Vette is a numbers-matching, national award winner that, thanks to a meticulous restoration, wears correct Laguna Blue paint, a correct Black interior and better-than-factory aesthetics. And when all that classic Americana is wrapped in a curvaceous, drop-top body, blue chip starts to really take shape. So, what are you waiting for? Give your friends at RK Motors Charlotte a call and experience this ultimate Corvette! Before we get into specifics, here's a detailed breakdown of this documented drop-top's VIN and trim tag: VIN: * 1 Chevrolet Motor Division * 94 Corvette * 67 Convertible * 6 1966 model year * S Assembled in St. Louis, Missouri * XXXXXX Production sequence number TRIM TAG: * I06 Assembled May 6th, 1966 * 66 1966 model year * 467 Corvette convertible * S Assembled in St. Louis, Missouri * 6644 Body assembly number * STD Black vinyl interior * 978AA Laguna Blue paint Many Vette enthusiasts regard the C2 as Chevrolet's purest Corvette design. And that's very easy to understand given this classic's small dimensions, purpose-built form and athletic demeanor. Of course, those qualities are best viewed through a beautiful restoration and, fortunately, the guys who reworked this Sting Ray did a fantastic job. Since the previous owner's goal was to have a classic that's both striking and functional, he made sure the car's no-hit body was clean, laser-straight and much nicer than any factory-correct original. Once that high level of fit and finish was attained, a buttery layer of correct Laguna Blue basecoat, available only for the 1966 model year, was sealed in glossy clear. And the rest, as they say, is six-figure, show-stopping history! Thanks to a renewed dedication to motorsports, and heavy influence from the original Mako Shark concept car, the second generation Corvette sports a very athletic appearance. At the front of this convertible, a low-slung clip tucks a stainless-trimmed grille behind thin 'razor blade' bumpers and bright, bullet-style parking lamps. Above that grille, hidden headlights highlight a familiar cross-flag emblem while a standard small block hood displays a mandatory Corvette STING RAY script. Behind those lights, a clean profile hangs traditional door handles and small fender flags between beefy rocker guards and a stylish bowtie mirror. At the top of that profile, tinted glass rides under polished frames, stainless wipers and a bright white top. And the car's sloped decklid centers a cross-flag-branded fuel cap above a bright Sting Ray emblem, deluxe tail lamps, two more 'razor blade' bumpers and traditional stainless exhaust tips. Tilt this Corvette's fiberglass hood and you'll find an original, 327 cubic inch L79 V8 which hangs a familiar 3858174 casting number behind a correct HT suffix stamp and matching partial VIN. Introduced as a formidable companion for street prowling Sting Rays, this high performance small block twists stout 10 to 1 compression into 350 horsepower. At the top of the spry mill, a polished air cleaner funnels wind in to a big Holley carburetor that's threaded onto fresh stainless fuel lines. Below that juice box, a Winters aluminum intake perfectly complements finned Corvette valve covers. At the back of that intake, chrome-cased ignition shoots spark past correct exhaust manifolds via stainless-sleeved wires. And at the front of those manifolds, a Harrison-branded radiator circulates water through pliable GM hoses and authentic tower clamps. Whoever performed the restoration on this Corvette did an excellent job
