This vintage Sting Ray was produced way back in 1965 in time for the Christmas celebrations, and the new model year paved the way for even more performance as the big-block V8 was offered in different configurations. Its new, top-end 427 cu in (7.0-liter) was famous for its deliberately understated power level of 390 hp and the original owner from Raymondville, Texas also ordered a lot more options.
Among them would be the four-speed manual transmission, Soft Ray tinted windows, the auxiliary hardtop for extra peace of mind during cold days, factory air conditioning, powered brakes and steering, or the “positraction” rear axle, among others. There are also some lovely premium touches, such as the teak wood steering wheel or the very expensive (at the time) cast aluminum knock-off-style wheels.
This restored Sting Ray proudly wears its Ermine White shade with matching white convertible top and a contrasting Navy-Blue interior. The Dream Giveaway Garage says the unit has benefited from a frame-off restoration procedure that would easily attract the attention of fans at any National Corvette Restorers Society national meet – the pictures in the attached gallery are of rather low resolution, but we tend to agree with the appraisal.
And, best of all, if you donate at least $3 you get the chance to participate in the sweepstakes for this C2 - of course, you can also select higher amounts that lend you increased chances. More so, Dream Giveaway is promising to pay the $30k needed for the taxes.
