The second generation of the Corvette began in 1963 and ended in 1967. This version was designed by Larry Shinoda and inspired by project Q Corvette, the car produced and designed by Peter Brock and Chuck Pohlmann under the supervision of Bill Mitchell. Other sources of inspiration were the lines of the Jaguar E-Type and the so-called Mitchell Sting Ray, a special car owned by the same Mitchell, which was inspired by the shapes and colours of the Mako shark.
The Corvette C2 is seen less and less frequently and is starting to become a rarity on the streets. The car has a special and cool look, especially with this blue paintwork.
This car starts straight away, idles nicely, accelerates powerfully and shifts smoothly through all gears. The Corvette engine with Edelbrock manifold and upgraded carburettor with 340HP provides plenty of power! The original interior still looks very neat, the seats were revised in the past and the carpet has been renewed. The Corvette’s 912 Silver Blue lacquer is still good, it was repainted 19 years ago and now shows some small traces of wear which are only visible from up close. The car has recently been serviced, the gearbox was fully overhauled in 2019.
The car is offered with complete maintenance history (a complete book with photos and invoices). The engine was overhauled in 2001 by the then French owner (pictures available). The Dutch owner (2003 to present) has always maintained the car well.
What makes this Corvette unique is the manual transmission (only a small number of Corvettes were equipped with it). The car is also equipped with a rare hardtop (and a virtually new soft-top) and the Dutch periodic inspection (APK) is valid until 11-09-2021 (car imported to the Netherlands in 2003).
So don’t wait and seize this opportunity to become the proud new owner of this beautiful piece of American history!
