Rare A. O. Smith Body w/ Balanced & Blueprinted 427 V-8
This 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Convertible comes with a NCRS Origin Certificate to show that it was built in St. Louis with an A.O. Smith body (#5832) and a final assembly date of March 29th, 1966. It was originally sold at Harry May Chevrolet/Cadillac in Monroe, Michigan. The current owner informs us that the transmission and differential could possibly be numbers-matching as well, although he does not have any documentation to support that belief. We can tell you that the 427 under the hood is very strong and delivers excellent overall performance.
Additionally, this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Roadster has seen extensive upgrades in recent years including fresh paint in the factory color, a new frame, new electric antennae, re-chromed bumpers, new reproduction wheels, a rebuilt carburetor and more. It also appears the factory interior has been replaced with a reproduction black vinyl. We have extensive service receipts on file, showing all that has been done to this 'Vette.
In terms of its present condition, this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray Roadster shows average levels of wear/tear for a typical driver. The exterior body has several blemishes that show through the recent respray- the next owner would likely want to address these issues to bring this one back to true show quality. Likewise, the engine compartment and the interior are pretty clean with a great factory look. As we previously stated though, the overall performance is excellent in this pure driver.
A Fantastic Steal at a Rock Bottom Asking Price
Overall, this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette Sting Ray 2 Door Convertible is a rare, highly desirable example that begs to be brought back to its former glory. It has everything serious collectors look for in a restoration candidate and it’s an absolute steal at the current asking price. Don’t sleep on this one- it will be sold quickly!
