Chassis n ° 194376S109204

- No reserve

For ten years, after its launch, the Corvette continued to be improved, with increasingly powerful engines and its design highlighting its sporting character but without losing the potential clientele more oriented towards luxury and comfort. The Sting Ray or C2 reflected perfectly this philosophy. The car on offer is powered by the "big block" 427ci engine, developing a mere 425bhp, and mated to a manual gearbox, which makes it possible to exploit optimally all these horses.
It was purchased in the USA in 2010 by its current owner, an important collector in the South of France, who carried out a comprehensive overhaul of the engine in 2011, as confirmed by the €28,000 invoice, available in the folder. In 2016, the paint was redone in its original "Fly Yellow" color for €15,000 and the car has only covered 420 km since. Thus it is in superb condition, the black leatherette interior is also in very good condition and conform to the original configuration. The mechanicals is original and it is matching numbers. This exceptional car, coming with a significant folder including photos, will fulfill the enthusiasts' expectations both on its restoration and the ferocity of its accelerative capabilities.
