Want to put some killer American muscle in your garage? Check out this phenomenal Vette!
RED NEVER LOOKED SO GOOD!
A head-turning collector car that's been massaged into a jaw-dropping pro-tourer, this smashing Sting Ray is the product of a professional, ground-up restoration that was completed by Sarasota, Florida's Godspeed Rides. That top-notch build is capped by a sinuous and equally solid body, which reflects vivid coats of smooth red 2-stage. And that body bends a buff canvas for a wide array of both custom and traditional details.
The car's Grand Sport-inspired charm begins with Satin Black bumpers, which hang intense driving lamps before a blackout grille that's stacked on a reshaped valance and a Trans Am-style spoiler. Above that grille, a shaved header spins electric Detroit Speed headlights in front of a '66-exclusive hood, which founds Satin Black louvers beneath Detroit Speed Selecta-Speed wipers and black-trimmed glass. At the sides of that hood, a ridged profile centers functional heat extractors, familiar bowtie mirrors and trick Ringbrothers door handles between widened fenders, widened quarters and custom rocker guards. At the back of that profile, a reshaped valance peaks an attractive ducktail between an ornate fuel filler, a reshaped tag cove and custom, center-outlet exhaust. And that tag, complete with a rearview camera, complements black-trimmed taillights and two more Satin Black bumpers.
Like its incredible appearance, this Sting Ray's engine highlights classic Chevy appeal with a virtual lifetime of technological improvement. Lift the car's Big Block Hood and you'll find GM's latest and greatest LT1: an all-aluminum V8 that, sourced directly from the pros at Pace Performance, twists a stout 460 horsepower into an impressive 465 lb./ft. of tire-shredding torque. At the top of that mill, a K&N-capped air tube funnels breeze through a stock GM throttle body and a composite GM intake. At the front of the mill, a billet Street Shop serpentine drive spins modern power steering opposite modern air conditioning. In front of those ancillaries, a big DeWitts radiator sports dual SPAL cooling fans. Fires are sparked by proven MSD plug wires. Exhaust exits through coated shorty headers. And details are on point, with a familiar Wilwood master cylinder complementing trick dipsticks, small K&N breathers and quality American Autowire wiring.
PUTTING THE ""PRO"" IN PRO-TOURER
Park this pro-tourer on a lift and you'll find a spotless undercarriage that's prepped, primed and ready to roar! A fresh 6L80 6-speed kicks a 9-inch Currie pumpkin, which spins a posi-traction differential around mild, 3.00 gears. That world-class driveline is an integral part of a $31K SRIII Stage II tube chassis, which rolls on a seventh-generation Corvette suspension. At the corners of that fully independent suspension, Wilwood Hydratech hydraulics cinch seventh-generation Corvette Z51 brakes. The aforementioned power steering fuels a Flaming River rack-and-pinion set-up. Custom, large-diameter exhaust funnels fried dinos through an X-shaped crossover and throaty Magnaflow mufflers. And at the corners, 3-piece Boze Lateral-G wheels throw torque through two 275/30ZR19 Pirelli P Zeros and two 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros.
21ST CENTURY STYLE
Pop the lightweight doors and you'll find a tasteful custom interior that continues this Sting Ray's striking visuals. Front and center, patterned seventh-generation Corvette buckets sport red-stitched leather. Ahead of those seats, a suede and leather dash hangs Dakota Digital VHX telemetry and compact Rockford Fosgate audio above Vintage Air Gen IV climate control and a lighted ""CORVETTE"" banner. At the center of that trifecta, a backlit console, complete with pushbutton transmission controls, traces the car's floor all the way back to a lighted ""GRAND SPORT"" banner. Custom door panels front modern power windows. In front of the driver, an attractive Flaming River wheel laps a tilting Ididit column. And a red-stitched headliner frames a trick mirror that provides real-time rear views through the car's rear-mount camera.
Storming the market over 65 years ago, America's favorite sports car remains some of the hottest performance on the planet. This brilliant pro-tourer is a world-class custom that features a potent drivetrain, a modern suspension and many well-executed details that make it the perfect combination of show and go. There really isn't a better hobby on earth than owning a classic car, and driving this striking coupe is the perfect way to celebrate that hobby!
