It’s hard to believe someone would have a C2 Corvette convertible sitting in his garage and not drive it for more than 40 years, but that’s the case with this 1966 Corvette Sting Ray that has been owned by the same person since 1973.
The owner says he bought the car 42 years ago, drove it for a while, and then parked it in his garage in the mid-1980s, where it’s been ever since.
Now that he’s decided to let someone else tackle the task of restoration, you could change that lack of activity with a winning bid on eBay.
The Milano Maroon over black interior Sting Ray has a 327 small block engine that the seller says will need to be rebuilt and also features four-wheel stainless steel disc brakes, AM/FM radio, teak steering wheel, stainless steel exhaust system, and reproduction knock-off wheels.
The seller doesn’t know if the car is matching numbers and says to be on the safe side, he’ll say it’s not.
He does call it a “very complete Corvette” and says he’s sure the frame is “intact, but rusty.” He adds there is no major body damage but isn’t sure about the condition of the convertible top, saying it hasn’t been raised in 25 years.
There has been a lot of interest in the car, with 25 bidders pushing the offer to $27,000 as of Wednesday, Dec. 9. The auction for this complete garage find 1966 corvette Sting Ray ends Sunday evening. See the full ebay listing for details.
