You get what you pay for.
That might be the lesson to be learned from this 1966 Corvette Sting Ray convertible restomod currently up for sale at a Florida dealership.
Modern Muscle Cars out of Ocala has marked down the price of this beautiful Sting Ray by $50,000 –and they’re still asking $229,000.
But, for that whopper of a price, you’ll get a Corvette that is “an amazing experience” to drive, according to the listing.
We’d be inclined to believe that analysis, based on all the impressive work that has been done to this car.
TechNet Professional installed a new GM LS7 7.0-liter 427 cubic inch V8 that pumps out 505 horsepower and added a Tremec 5-speed manual transmission with a Ram Twin Disc Hydraulic clutch and a smooth-shifting short-throw shifter. This Sting Ray now “rides and turns like a dream” after other mechanical updates that include a Street Shop frame with C4 suspension, adjustable coilovers, and new Nitto 555 tires surrounding new Chip Foose chrome rims.
The Magnetic Metallic paint from House of Colors is said to be “amazing” when you see it in person, and the all-new leather interior “gives you that new car smell that is so irresistible.”
Other modern touches include power windows, JL Audio Bluetooth stereo with six speakers and a subwoofer, Dakota Digital gauges with red backlighting, tilt wheel, custom console with retractable cup holders, and an all-new Vintage AC system.
If you’ve got the bucks, this is definitely one beautiful C2 Corvette!
