If you have an overwhelming need for speed, our friends at Bringatrailer.com may have spotted the car for you. They found a 1964 Corvette Stingray for sale on eBay that has been a vintage racecar since 1972 and was last raced in the Historic Vintage Festival at Lime Rock Park in 2013.
According to the eBay ad, the car is well sorted, is ready to race, and comes with the title and VIN tag (40867S106048), as well as logbooks dating from 1972 to the present. It is an SVRA Medallion car (#6-387) that was restored in late 2009 including new paint, Grand Sport style dash, new racing seat, new belts, new gauges and switch panel, and all new wiring.
Documentation includes two SCCA logbooks: #18-240 dating to 1972 with a continuation logbook that is current and up-to-date with annual SCCA tech certification. It also comes with SVRA logbook #3099.
The engine has 10 hours on it since it was rebuilt in 2009 and produces 411 horsepower at the rear wheels. The engine has a roller cam, Barnes dry sump oil system, cast iron heads, MSD ignition system, a Holley performance intake manifold with a Holley 750 cfm carburetor. Hooker headers and sidepipes help the car to go fast and sound great. The list of new or rebuilt engine accessories goes on and on—please see the eBay ad for details.
If you’d like to add your name to the list of previous drivers that includes Doug Rippie, Frenchie Damper, Steve Strandemo and Doug Kelley, don’t dally. The eBay auction ends on June 13, 2014, but the car has been locally advertised and the present owner, Jim Glass, has reserved the right to end the auction early. The car is located at Jim Glass Corvette in Kingston NY.
