This Ermine White 1966 Corvette with Blue interior was originally delivered to the Welch Motor Company in Raymondville, Texas in December 1965. The original owner outfitted the car with the optional 427/390-hp engine and just about every other option bringing the MSRP to $5,935.85. Options included the 4-speed manual transmission, air conditioning, power brakes, power steering, positraction rear axle, transistor ignition, cast aluminum wheels, AM/FM Radio with power antenna and the teakwood steering wheel.

The Sting Ray has been fully restored to Concours-quality and is ready to be driven to the local car show or cruise-in! You know you want to put this legendary, high-performance American sports car in your garage, so enter now.

Classic Corvette Dream Giveaway



  1. Remarkable car but I always wanted the C2 Coupe with the 396/4speed/ and side pipes in Nashua Blue. My C4 was blue and now My C8 is Blue! In the beginning, even before Zora Corvettes were White with Red interior 6 cylinder, Dual exhaust, Power Glide 2 speed Automatics!

  2. Very nice Corvette and being raffled off for a very worthy cause, but the picture in the write up of the engine is not for a Corvette. Good Luck to those who are entered, I wish I were in a position to throw my hat into the ring.

  3. Beautiful, nice color combination, be nice to see the real engine compartment picture. This looks like an impala or some other Chevrolet engine compartment!
