Wrapping GM's impressive Ram Jet 350 in a custom chassis, this incredible roadster is a fully sorted road warrior that's both “classy” AND “irresistible”. And best of all, you can have all that presence and performance without sacrificing any old school style! Built to be shown and driven, this stunning Sting Ray was completely disassembled, carefully modified and professionally restored by Masterworks Automotive in Madison Heights, Michigan. The car is razor-straight, no doubt requiring minimal work to present better-than-new aesthetics. Once its body was stripped and sufficiently prepped, layers of Jet-Black base were sealed in clear, detailed with a silver stinger stripe and carefully buffed to a brilliant shine. And today, this top-notch Corvette features a great combination of skilled workmanship, modern amenities, and first-rate finishing that sets it apart in a crowded segment of extremely nice cars. The car opens with a 1-piece front clip, which tucks a stainless-trimmed grille behind a colorful header emblem, beautiful chrome bumpers and bright, bullet-style parking lamps. Above that grille, a familiar Stinger Hood, which looks downright evil, leads the eye to bright stainless trim, lightly tinted glass and a black sleek top. At the sides of that hood, a clean profile hangs '67-exclusive heat extractors in front of chrome door handles, red-detailed bowtie mirrors, and chambered shielded side pipes. Under the hood you'll find a mean GM Performance Parts Ram Jet 350 that's good for 350 horsepower and 400 lb./ft accented with Chevrolet-branded valve covers. At the base of those valve covers, Vortec heads and aluminum roller rockers combine with roller lifters, a hydraulic roller cam, an iron crank, powdered connecting rods and hypereutectic pistons to create a stout 9 to 1 compression. Ram horn-style exhaust manifolds followed by a modern serpentine system spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC compressor. The Be Cool radiator houses a large electric puller fan. Details like braided fluid lines and bowtie-branded breathers ensure this Chevy runs every bit as good as it looks. Park this Vette on a lift and you'll find a custom Jamison's chassis that's been bolted to modified and undercoated floor tubs. Behind the stout small block, a reliable Tremec 5-speed backed by a hydraulic clutch and 3.73 gears. That first-class drivetrain rolls on a fourth generation Corvette independent suspension that's fitted with high quality coil-overs and Vette Brake Products strut rods. Modern power rack-and-pinion steering. Confident braking provided by an updated wilwood disc brake system. Power flows through American Racing wheels, which spin 245/45ZR17 BF Goodrich g-Force Sports around polished lips and industrial center caps. And everything from this Chevy's brake lines to its fuel filter is professionally finished, superbly detailed and ready for action. Leather interior that's complete, tasteful and classic. Front and center, a pair of supple buckets anchor supportive headrests between rare shoulder belts. In front of those buckets, a black and silver dual-cowl dash hangs a correct Delco AM/FM radio below rebuilt Corvette gauges. At the sides of that dash, monochromatic door panels center stylish chrome hardware between sculpted armrests and tasteful stainless trim. A full-length console frames a small shifter and chrome power window switches. In front of the driver, a satin-spoke steering wheel and tilting column. The sale of this ominous classic includes an album of detailed restoration photos. Even without admiring its serious mechanical ability, anyone with the slightest automotive intuition can easily understand this Vette's exceptional aesthetic appeal. There are very few C2s, and even fewer classics, that are as genuinely cool as this drop-top.
