But definitely not in a mournful or sad way.
This vintage Sting Ray – which features a Lynndale Blue exterior, blue soft top, and Teal Blue vinyl interior – may be an older restoration, but it appears to remain in top-notch – or should we say Top Flight – condition nearly two decades after the work was completed.
Sold new through Barford Chevrolet in Clayton, Missouri, this Corvette is being offered on BaT by our friends at Corvette Mike for the next six days. Not surprisingly, interest has already been strong, with the high bid quickly hitting $75,000 Sunday afternoon.
That Lynndale Blue exterior was repainted during a restoration completed in 2003, and this Corvette went on to receive six NCRS Top Flight awards between 2005 and 2007 with a high mark of 99.1 and an average score of 97+. The car was even displayed in 2003 for the Corvette 50th Anniversary celebration at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles as well as at Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California.
Its numbers-matching drivetrain includes a 327/300 horsepower V8 engine hooked to a four-speed manual transmission. Other equipment includes a Positraction rear end, power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, AM/FM Delco radio, a vinyl-covered removable hardtop, tinted glass, lap belts, and BF Goodrich red-stripe tires around 15-inch Rally-style wheels with chrome rings and hubcaps
It’s hard to beat the look of a classic C2 Corvette, and we’re eager to see where the price of this one finally ends. We’ll just be singing the blues because it won’t be us behind the wheel when the auction ends!
