An extra gallon of paint comes with this 1966 Corvette Sting Ray currently up for sale on Craigslist in the San Francisco area.
Originally silver, this car now sports what appears to be a good red paint job, and the chrome bumpers look to be in good condition as well, at least in the photos. The seller says he has a gallon of Red Lacquer paint and another gallon of Acrylic Red enamel paint, and he’ll throw in whichever one the buyer wants.
Better still, the price is very affordable at just $42,000.
Most of the heavy lifting appears to have already been done on this Sting Ray, which sports new factory repro seat covers with new foam and a new headliner as well as a rebuilt steering column. The rest of the interior also looks nice, including the carpet, instrument panel, door panels, console, and glovebox cover. The factory teakwood steering wheel is another welcome touch.
Under the hood, the car sports a 327/350 horsepower engine that “runs good,” according to the listing, with a 7-quart oil pan, Mallory Unilite distributor, Holley carburetor, headers, and Muncie four-speed manual transmission.
One thing that is missing from this car is the Corvette Sting Ray emblem on the front corner of the hood on the driver’s side. That’s the easiest way for us to distinguish a ’66 from a ’65, which doesn’t have that beautiful logo.
At least with a glance at the listing, this one looks like a great way to get into a classic Sting Ray without breaking the bank. After all, only 9,958 coupes were produced that year, with another 17,762 convertibles for a total run in St. Louis of 27,720.
