Car description

Story

Inspired by the soaring elegance of a ray, the Sting Ray Corvette was designed by deep-sea fisherman and GM chief designer Bill Mitchell, as well as designer Larry Shinoda. They said goodbye to the bombastic 50s lines of the previous model and presented an aggressive sports car outfit that has a similarly stunning effect as the Jaguar E-Type presented shortly before. The sporty, emphasized design was further enhanced by the pop-up headlights, which were modern at the time. The new Corvette was available as both a convertible and a coupe with a split rear window. In addition to more displacement (up to 7 liters), the chassis has also been revised. With independent rear suspension and disc brakes, the Corvette was now easier to control even when cornering in a sporty manner. Sportiness with a European touch prevails in the cockpit. The driver and front passenger crouch in narrow seating niches, the large instruments display all the important data. As if by itself, the right hand falls on the ball of the short shift lever, which can be pushed smoothly through the link of the four-speed gearbox. Equipped with these attributes, the Sting Ray hit like a bomb at its presentation.

Special features of this offered Sting Ray

Our Sting Ray was first registered in the USA in 1964. The number of previous owners in the USA could not be completely clarified. We assume there were only 2 previous owners. In any case, in 2012 this Sting Ray was "frame-off" restored by a Corvette specialist in the USA and was given a newly built big block engine with a displacement of 7 liters in the course of the restoration. In addition, an overhauled Tremec transmission, ceramic-coated headers, Edelbrock intake manifold, Holley carburettor, aluminum valve cover, Concept 1 servo pump, aluminum cooler, brake force adjustment, new tires were installed, and the chassis was completely overhauled, the entire body was repainted, the interior was revised, new carpets were laid and a new one Hood mounted. Also on board are the light-alloy wheels with central locking, which are subject to a surcharge. 544 Nm presses on the reinforced crankshaft and requires a very sensitive gas foot, otherwise the wheels will inevitably spin even in 3rd gear. Just starting the engine gives you goosebumps. The sound experience is simply indescribable. Mucho macho drama is ignited by this stingray, which the legendary motoring journalist Fritz B. Busch described as follows: "Roll a Sting Ray down the Via Veneto in Rome at night. And you get a rough idea of how many girls there are at the time." have for you." The thought might be considered sexist today. In any case, so does the Sting Ray. In 2013, the Corvette was sold to an important collection in Germany via a specialist in England -mediated through us. The German collector has moved this Corvette a maximum of 1000 km since then. Maintenance and pending TÜV preparations were carried out by us during this time. Now, this very neat, almost new Sting Ray convertible is back on the market due to a collection change. This rocket requires a gun license.
