The Model - During the 1960's, there was usually only one car a red-blooded American teenage boy could think of, a Corvette Stingray. Almost from the day they went on sale, the Stingray coupes have been a favorite starting point for those who wanted something a little extra. Tweaking the stock engine for a few more HP, adding a few touches to the exterior giving the car a custom look, or refining the cockpit to give the driver and lucky passenger the ride of a lifetime. While there are plenty of purists today who restored their Corvettes back to pure-stock condition, there is another breed of owners who want something different, and those fine folks have created works or rolling art that not only look good but can run like greased lightning.

The Car - Starting with a solid chassis, the build on this 1966 coupe is top-shelf all the way. Finished in a deep, rich shade of Daytona Blue, the body work and panel alignment are beyond perfection. Hand-crafted stuffed dark charcoal leather seats cradle driver and passengers, with a premium sound system to help the occupants escape to their own special happy place. Under the hood is a mighty LS3 V8 pumping out at least 438 HP, which many feel is greatly under-rated. Backed up by a six-speed manual transmission, this car rides on a set of C6 styled Spider chrome wheels and low-profile tires with stopping power provided by a Wilwood disc-brake set-up. Showing under 1,200 miles since the build was complete this could be the star attraction at the local cruise-in, or may even be a trophy car at a local or even regional car show. Any way you want to use this mighty Corvette, it stands ready to serve and please.
