Here’s your opportunity to buy a big-block 1966 Sting Ray coupe from Kai Spande, plant manager at the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

In a posting on the C2 Corvette Owners Club on Facebook, Spande says his ’66 will be going up for sale soon on Bring a Trailer, but he first wanted to gauge interest from that Facebook group before doing so.

Spande purchased the car from Corvette Mike in Anaheim, California in 2019 and says it had undergone a two-year, frame-off restoration several years earlier and afterwards earned a Bloomington Gold certification.

“I have date coded everything from the differential, trans, engine, alternator, etc. etc. and it all matches,” Spande says in the post. ‘Even talked to the second owner who is a Dr. South of Bowling Green, Ky, where I live.”

The car is powered by an L72 427/425 horsepower motor hooked to a four-speed close-ratio manual transmission and has factory side pipes and wood steering wheel, along with Kelsey-Hayes knock-off wheels and Goodyear Goldline tires.

Spande says he “truly” believes the car’s odometer reading showing less than 38,000 miles – “substantiated by talking to the second owner, and the person I bought it from. The exact reason I bought it.”

He describes the Milano Maroon Sting Ray as “just awesome,” adding “I could go on and on. Believe me, it is a great car.”

The window sticker shows a final MSRP of $5,743.24, with other features including power brakes, tinted glass, AM/FM radio, and Positraction rear axle.

The Corvette is currently on display at the National Corvette Museum. “If you are ready to buy a piece of history, let me know,” says Spande, a member of the NCM Board of Directors.

  1. Was at Corvette Museum 10/10, saw many fine corvettes and struck this off my bucket list. Kai, this corvette has lived an empty life if it truly has only 38k on the speedo and you would not want me to buy this corvette because I would put 38K miles in just a couple of years, if not sooner.
